Masvidal wants 'easy paychecks' Healy or Miller


 Jorge Masvidal made his UFC debut a success, winning a unanimous decision against Tim Means at the UFC on FOX 7 event. Previously Masvidal 3-1 fighting under the Strikeforce banner, the only blemish a title fight loss to champion Gilbert Melendez.

Now that he's transitioned into the UFC, 'Gamebred' is interested to fight some 'easy paychecks' to sustain a living and feed his family:

"I'm looking for easy paychecks at this stage of my career. I got my baby I got to feed, you know? So, I'm looking for easy paychecks at this stage of my career, man. Pat Healy, Jim Miller is right up there. Plus, one of them is ranked in the top something, so I definitely want to fight one of them. I just think for many years a lot of these guys that are so called top 10 and Billy badasses, really ain't shit. And I'm here to prove that.

You can say it's a chip on my shoulder because I'm coming over from Strikeforce, or whatever. I think once they get in there with me, they are going to find out the truth. I'm about to change my name to ‘The Truth' in a second -- ‘The Truth Gamebred' Masvidal."

I don't think he was talking about FOTN bonus.Why he would think either one of them would be a easy fight is beyond me.I'm going to assume he is trying to get a fight that will push I'm up the rankings a little faster.

Horace Andy - 'Problems Dub' was the best thing about the clip imo

My guess is this, he knows those would be hard fights unless he is completely crazy, I don't think he is. He probably also thinks he could keep both fights on the feet and outstrike them both. I don't know that he'd be able to do that but Masvidal definitely has really good takedown defense and is probably the best striker of the three. A win over either of them would get him into the top 10, I'm sure he knows that.

Give him the top fights, he'll be out of a job in no time... He'll be going from "easy paychecks" to no paychecks.

I hope he means easy money like FOTN bonus bc fighting Miller the odds of getting that is high. But he seems highly educated about his division (note the sarcasm)

No way he gets matched up with Healy. I don't think he'll fight Miller next either. No easy fights there regardless.

In all fairness, he may be referring to the paycheck for losing.
