One of the biggest fighting events of the year takes place on Saturday, April 8 as UFC 287 is a stacked card.

Jorge Masvidal is set to take on Gilbert Burns and now reveals his possible future plans after this fight.

On top of that, the UFC star addresses some of the rumors regarding himself and Jake Paul.

It’s no secret that Jorge Masvidal is a veteran of the sport. He’s been doing this for quite some time. For that reason, he may actually be pondering retirement, MMA Fighting.

That is if he loses to Burns on Saturday. If Masvidal wins, then we may see him for quite a bit longer.

So, this could be the end of Jorge Masvidal’s career, making UFC 287 even more exciting.

On the other hand, there has been plenty of buzz lately regarding a possible match-up between Masvidal and Jake Paul.

According to MMA Fighting, Jorge Masvidal doesn’t want to fight Jake Paul. He goes as far as to say, “He’s not a draw.” Here is his full statement.

“If he would have stayed undefeated and all of a sudden would have became an actual household name, I would have loved to burst that bubble. I would have broke right through his f****** face because at the end of the day, when he was a Disney princess living that life, I was already earning my stripes and competing. From the backyards, all the way to headlining shows in Miami. This dude and me is more just like him to boost his name up and stuff like that. Especially now that I got a fight coming up coincidentally he wants to call me out. This guy sees me and he runs from me.”

Paul’s future in combat sports is about to get interesting though. After losing his last bout to Tommy Fury, the influencer-turned-fighter is taking his talents to the PFL.

He’s challenged Nate Diaz to a two-fight deal, where they would box and fight MMA. Jorge Masvidal reiterates he doesn’t want any part of that.

“In MMA, that’s not gonna happen ever. It doesn’t matter what they offer that individual. He’s not a draw, I’ll be honest with you. It’s proven. I’m in the promoter business.”

With that said, it doesn’t sound like a Jorge Masvidal-Jake Paul matchup will ever be in the works. That’s especially true if Masvidal loses to Gilbert Burns on Saturday.
