Conor McGregor, a former UFC dual-weight champion, has been accused of “steroid use” by Jorge Masvidal, who has issued a harsh warning to the Irishman.
McGregor hasn’t fought since a gruesome leg break in the first round of his UFC 264 fight against Dustin Poirier in July 2021. Since then, ‘The Notorious’ has put on weight and now appears to be around 190 pounds.
When he returns to the octagon later this year, he even stated that he intends to fight at welterweight. And, in the hopes of taking on ‘Mystic Mac’ this year, the trash-talking Masvidal has taken several savage digs at McGregor.
“He is false,” Masvidal told ESPN Deportes. “He knows I am a hard-hitting man who comes to kill, not to play hug in the cage. I am going to give everything I have to kill him.”
“I have a little size, but he is still a little boy, despite the fact that he is puncturing and injecting steroids and other substances.
“I’d love to fight at 170 pounds, but I’m not one to wait.” I’ll break his face if he wants to do it; if he doesn’t, he can come next.”
Do you think Masvidal would “break” McGregor’s face if he were to attack him? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Masvidal, like McGregor, is coming off a losing streak, having been defeated by decision twice by UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman and once by Colby Covington earlier this year.
Masvidal allegedly assaulted Covington outside a Miami restaurant following the fight. Masvidal was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and criminal mischief, while ‘Chaos’ suffered a fractured tooth during the brawl.
