Jorge Masvidal claims BRAIN DAMAGE is why Nate Diaz refuses to sign UFC deal and urges rival to ‘f****** fight’

JORGE MASVIDAL reckons brain damage could be the reason Nate Diaz is refusing to sign a new contract with the UFC.

Fan favorite Diaz has one fight left on his current contract with the mixed martial arts promotion, but has no intention of signing a new one.

The Stockton slugger’s decision not to re-emerge has stunned former opponent Masvidal, who says the confounding blows he’s taken over the years have clouded his judgement.

During an appearance on The MMA Hour, Masvidal said, “I think he has too much CTE [chronic traumatic encephalopathy] to even understand what they are putting in front of him.

“I don’t normally side with the UFC as you know but from what I’ve heard and seen this guy just has a freaking ego bro.

“Like, bloody fight.”

Masvidal and Diaz, both 37, met at UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden in November 2019.

Masvidal won the MSG Showdown via TKO in the third round – which came about through a doctor’s stoppage – but is ready to go head-to-head with the Ultimate Fighter Season 5 winner a second time.

He said: “I can send him into his last fight with all the bullshit talk he’s been having lately.

“I wouldn’t mind breaking his jaw and sending him to the casino where he’s going to fight.”

However, Masvidal does not foresee the eldest Diaz brother agreeing to a rematch.

Gamebred said: “He will not sign if my name is mentioned. He goes into Hunter [Campbell, UFC Chief Business Officer]He becomes all matchmakers for a few weeks whenever my name is mentioned.

“If he hears this and makes a little stupid tweet and tears the whole thing down…b***h sign the paper and let’s fight man.”

Two-time welterweight title challenger Masvidal has not fought since losing his UFC 272 grudge match to Colby Covington in March.

Diaz, on the other hand, has not set foot in the octagon since his UFC 263 loss to Leon Edwards last June, but he has struggled to get back in the octagon.

He tweeted late last month: “I’ve been trying to fight for a year and for months I’ve been trying to fight Khamzat too [Chimaev] for the last month and a half but he was injured, had visa issues, was overweight and now his ass is getting married instead of fighting WTF?

“I’m trying to get a fight with a real fighter as soon as possible/July LFG.”
