Masvidal: Cerrone is a ‘Little Bitch’ for Role as Founding MMAAA Board Member

Jorge Masvidal, who challenged Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone to a fight after defeating Jake Ellenberger on Saturday,  had some…colorful tweets for the New Mexico native on Monday night. Specifically, “Gamebred” had some unkind words about Corrine’s role as a founding board member of the new MMA Athletes Association:

Masvidal has lost two separate chances to break into the welterweight top 10 in the last year through no fault of his own. At UFC‘s debut in Seoul, South Korea a year ago, he was set to face Dong Hyun Kim in the co-main event, while Benson Henderson was originally booked against Thiago Alves in the main event. When Alves got hurt, it looked like the UFC wanted the Korean fighters (Henderson’s mother is Korean) in separate bouts, so Masvidal got the call up to fight Henderson, losing a close split decision.

A more recent booking against Kelvin Gastelum fell through when Robbie Lawler pulled out of his UFC 205 fight against Cerrone, so Gastelum was subbed in because they needed a highly ranked welterweight. Gastelum missed that fight due to weight cutting issues and moves up to middleweight this weekend at UFC 206.
