‘We’re all in,’ says Jorge Masvidal, who would jump into a fight in a heartbeat.

Jorge Masvidal and his manager Malki Kawa were featured on Ariel Helwani’s “MMA Hour” earlier this week, and “Gamebred” revealed his willingness to fight in a superfight.

Masvidal was supposed to face No.

On December 11, 2021, Gamebred was scheduled to fight No. 3 welterweight Leon Edwards at UFC 269, but he withdrew due to an undisclosed injury.

Masvidal and Kawa made it clear to Helwani on November 17, 2021, that they’re “all in” on fighting Conor McGregor.

McGregor chastised Masvidal for pulling out of the Edwards fight, while Gamebred mocked “Notorious'” infamous bar incident in which he punched an older man.

“Every time he or anyone else tweets that name at us or Jorge, I call [UFC executive] Hunter [Campbell and say, ‘Hey Hunter, how are you doing? Did you see Conor?'” Kawa told MMA Fighting.

“‘Yeah, he doesn’t want that fight,’ Hunter says.’ OK, boom.

Whenever.

It never fails to amaze me.

“And look, I’m not sure if that’s true or not, but they said they tried to make that fight a couple of times, and Conor won’t take it.”

And, as [UFC President] Dana [White] has stated, Jorge is too big for him, and that’s the end of the story.

So, if they really wanted to fight, our end will accept it regardless.

“We’re all on board.”

McGregor is currently out of commission while he recovers from a broken leg he suffered during his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in July 2021.

For Masvidal, a re-signing of a bout agreement with Edwards for March is a high priority.

If not, Gamebred said he’d consider facing Colby Covington, another of his rivals.
