Masvidal worried about syphilis in Chiesa’s beard

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Usually going into fights there is a lot to worry about. Did you prepare and train properly, how much weight do you have to cut, what is the guy going to try to do to you. However going into UFC on FOX 8, Jorge Masvidal has an interesting, and somewhat gross, concern about his bout:

“I’m going to tell the commission to wrap that thing up,” Masvidal said. “I don’t want to get no mat herpes or nothing on my face. I’ve been in this game a long time, and I ain’t got nothing on my face. I ain’t about catch some syphilis or whatever he’s got going on in that beard, you know?”

For his part, Chiesa has thus far refused to engage in a trashtalking battle. The even-keeled 25-year-old admits he’s read some of Masvidal’s quotes but isn’t interested in bothering with a reply.

“Whatever pumps him up,” Chiesa said. “I’ll let my actions speak for themselves.

“I’m not a talker. I’m a performer, and I’m going to perform on Saturday night.”
