What have they said?
Dana White, UFC president: “It’s like the [Justin] Gaethje vs Tony Ferguson fight. Gaethje saw the opportunity and took it. It was brilliant of Masvidal to slide in after Gilbert Burns tested positive.”
Jorge Masvidal, who took the fight on six days notice after Burns had to pull out, talking about his weigh cut: “Twenty pounds in six days. That’s all I’m gonna say. It was rough. But I did it. I get sh*t done.”
