While 100% of the focus should have been on Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez in the build-up to their UFC 205 lightweight title clash, most of the attention has fallen on McGregor’s confrontations with other fighters.

At the official weigh-ins, the Irishman got into an exchange with welterweight champion Tyron Woodley, as well as Khabib Nurmagomedov.


His altercation with Woodley spilled online, with both men exchanging heated words on their Twitter accounts.

As expected, this has fans wondering whether McGregor will move up to 170 pounds again, this time to take on Woodley; another fight which could generate a lot of money and a lot more interest.

However, UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal was speaking to BJPenn.com and provided an interesting insight into how a potential fight between the pair would go down.

Having trained with The Chosen One – and is open to a short notice fight against Donald Cerrone at UFC 205 - he claims that any fight between them would look like “domestic violence.”


He said: “I have actually had the pleasure of training with Tyron Woodley. We have trained plenty of times together and as for Conor, as heavy as his left hand is and everything, he is like the general population when it comes to grappling.

“When I watched him grappling, it reminded me of the dudes who train once a day and have a 9-5 job.

“Woodley would legitimately Gorilla-slam him into next week. Woodley at any moment could just f*****g pick him up and end his life. Slam him through the mat like it was nothing.

“I know people are going to be like, ‘what the f**k man. What are you talking about?’ And I am going to get all sorts of hate mail.

“But I have to be real. Woodley would slam him so hard into the canvas, that it would look like domestic violence, I think.”

McGregor does possess enough power to cause anyone trouble, but Woodley hits harder and is the superior wrestler out of the two.

While McGregor could be on the hunt for more UFC championships, Woodley is a fighter he would have plenty of problems against.
