The UFC's reigning BMF champ went on the 'Dan Le Batard Show' and was asked about a potential fight with Conor ... and that's when Masvidal spelled it all out.
"To be quite frank, [Conor] was flirting with fighting the winner when the possibility of the winner was Nate," Masvidal said.
"He kept throwing it out there. He even made his prediction. But, since I've won, he hasn't said a peep."
"That dude don't want it, man."
Masvidal says he's not a bully -- and won't trash Conor in the hopes of baiting him into a fight -- but it seems pretty clear Jorge wants it.
"If you wanna fight, I'm licking my chops."
As for Conor, he announced his return to the Octagon will go down on January 18 -- but didn't reveal his opponent.
