Jorge Masvidal is not backing down as he continues to pursue his quest to fight former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
However, it appears that Bisping wants no part of their beef that Masvidal is trying to start.
Masvidal decided that last Tuesday was a good time to release a supposed direct-message exchange with Bisping via social media.
It looked like an almost perfect transcribed version of their back and forth trash talk.
As seen in the messages Masvidal blasted Bisping for ripping up the Cuban flag and accused him of being a racist. Bisping dismisses Masvidal in turn.
It should be noted that Bisping remains medically suspended following a first-round knockout loss to Kelvin Gastelum this past month at UFC Fight Night 122. On the flip side, Masvidal suffered a decision loss to Stephen Thompson at UFC 217.
Bisping went on his Believe You Me podcast to refute that idea, calling the entire thing “juvenile.”
“He was messaging me a ton of abuse so I gave him a bit of sh*t back and then at the end I just said, ‘Listen, I’m not interested in this.
This is ridiculous.’ I can’t remember how I worded it but I said, ‘This is a two-way street, you started this, I’m not interested in this anymore. I’m not going back and forth, if you want to keep it up, you’re on your own.’
“Obviously, when you were reading that, the whole thing sounds very, very juvenile. He sent one, I responded. He sent something back, then I responded.
Then he carried it on and I’m like, listen, I can’t do this. I’m not acting like a teenager sending insulting messages back and forth over bloody Instagram. I’m almost 40 years old! So that’s why I said if you want to keep this up, you’re on your own.
I’m not interested, you’re nothing to me, and that was that. And then the little prick takes a screenshot and posts it on Instagram.”
“I’m not sure what he was trying to achieve,” said Bisping. “I think, if anything, it just makes him look like a fool. It makes him look like a moron to be honest, and I’m glad that I actually was the more responsible of the two. What a little b*tch.
“I think he thinks in his mind that because I ‘backed down,’ - basically, acted like an adult and said, ‘Listen, f*ck this, I’m done, I don’t need to do this - he thinks that that was me cowering to him and shying away from confrontation and being, as he would say, a little b*tch. No. It’s me being a grown-ass man, nearly 40 years old, and not arguing with some piece of trash from Florida. I’m not doing it. You’re on your own bud.”
