    Targeting a pair of fights before the end of this year, Miami native, Masvidal accused McGregor of taking steroids during his time away from active competition, as well as insisting that if they fought – he would break the latter’s face.

    “He (Conor McGregor) is false,” Jorge Masvidal said. “He knows tasty I am a man who hits hard and that I come to kill. I do not come to hug in the cage. I am going to give everything inside of me to kill him. I have a little size, although now he’s shooting up and putting steroids and all kinds of things (in his body), but he is still a little boy.”

    Reacting to Masvidal’s comments, McGregor referred to the American Top Team staple as a “pigeon brain”.

    “An absolute pigeon brain this guy is,” Conor McGregor tweeted in a now-deleted post. “Stupid beyond belief.”
