Fresh from a third-round TKO against Nate Diaz, Jorge Masvidal has massive ambitions within and outside UFC.
The UFC 244 main event was stopped due to a cut near Diaz's eye. At the time, Masvidal was up on the scorecards but he was still quick to offer a rematch in the aftermath of the contest.
"What happened in the third was just going to keep happening in the fourth and in the fifth. I was ready to fuck him up, keep going,” Masvidal said at the post-fight press conference.
“I am the most competitive person this whole fucking company’s ever seen. I want to end him. I want to send him off to another dimension.
"I have got nothing but respect for the dude but that’s the type of artwork I like to do. I didn’t get him in this one. Are we going to rematch tomorrow or next week? I don’t know but it will happen at some point."

However, UFC president Dana White indicated he was not open to an immediate rematch. If he doesn't fight Diaz, Masvidal wants another superfight to come from outside the sport; Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.
Canelo's clash with Kovalev on Saturday night was delayed until after the UFC fight and as far as the victor is concerned, it is a match-up waiting to happen.
"If Canelo wants to get his ass kicked, that’s a fight I’ll take,” Masvidal said. “I’m just here to get the biggest checks possible but Nate is in the future for a fact."
I can box. I can hit hard. I’ve got different angles. I’m not going to get tired in a 12 round boxing event, especially if I have time to prepare for it.
It’s just kind of fate. He’s fighting today, I’m fighting today. I heard we fucking killed him on the pay-per-views.
He wasn't finished there either. Masvidal is also looking to UFC 254 where Kamaru Usman takes on Colby Covington.
“Are we going to fight? When that championship of sissys is done and the dust settles and if one of them makes it to the fight because these guys are always pulling out against each other, I’ll be there when the dust settles. It’s on my terms now."
The 34-year old is coming off a gruelling schedule and did say he would take some time to resolve some injuries. However, with lofty targets for 2020, the welterweight won't be away for too long.
