Jorge Masvidal continued to poke at Conor McGregor with some recent comments.

Ever since defeating Nate Diaz at UFC 244, there’s been a lot of chatter about what the star right will do, and if a potential bout with McGregor is on the horizon. From the sounds of it, I would bet on it just yet. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

“He was flirting with fighting the winner when the possibility of the winner was Nate…since I’ve won. He hasn’t said a peep,” Masvidal said Tuesday on the “Dan Le Batard Show.” (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

The new face of the UFC also added that he’d be “licking” his “chops” if McGregor actually wants to get after it. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Watch the segment below.

This isn’t the first time Masvidal has pretty much said McGregor doesn’t have the stones to fight him. Right after his UFC 244 victory, he pretty much said the exact same thing.

He told the world the Irish-born star didn’t want any part of him.

The reality is the hype around a potential McGregor/Masvidal fight will only get cranked up as more time passes, and it’ll really go through the roof if the former wins his January 18 return.

However, I’m inclined to agree with Masvidal. I’m not sure McGregor wants any part of him at the moment. He’s the fastest rising star in the sport.

He worked over Nate Diaz with ease.

We’ll see what happens, but I’m not convinced at all that McGregor can hang with Masvidal. He lit up Ben Askren and then defeated Nate Diaz.

The man is on fire. McGregor might want to steer clear of him.
