Jorge Masvidal is looking for a fight with Nate Diaz, if his pre-UFC 241 comments are anything to judge off of. MMA Weekly reports that backstage at the event, Masvidal was asked what his perfect fight would be and said that if Diaz defeated Anthony Pettis (which he did), he’d be #1 on Masvidal’s list.

“[If] Nate Diaz wins tonight, [then] Nate Diaz above all because he’s the biggest paycheck. And one of the fights that I would like because I think that goes down in history as something that everybody here would pay their hard-earned money to see.”

The site notes he may get his wish, as Diaz said after his win that he wants Masvidal: “Jorge Masvidal had a good last fight. All respect to the man, but there ain’t no gangsters in this game anymore. There ain’t nobody that done it right but me and him. I know my man’s a gangster, but he ain’t no West Coast gangster.”
