Jorge Masvidal considering taking DREAM NYE fight

Standing in a queue of fighters hoping to work on a possible Jan. 12 Strikeforce card, Jorge Masvidal (23-7 MMA, 5-1 SF) has a contingency plan if the promotion can't find space or the event is canceled.

He plans to take an offer from the recently revived Japanese promotion DREAM to fight Hayato Sakurai or Satoru Kitaoka at "DREAM.18: Special NYE 2012."

"I'd much rather fight here in America because I'd get more money ... but if I have to, (I'll fight on) Dec. 31," Masvidal recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "I'll be kicking ass in Japan."


Kitaoka is one of three Japanese vets expected to compete at the DREAM event, which takes place Dec. 31 event at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, with a broadcast partner to be announced. The January Strikeforce event was announced following the cancellation of a Nov. 3 event that was scrapped following injuries to two of its headliners.

Masvidal was among several displaced by that event's cancellation. He was scheduled to meet Bobby Green in what would have been his second fight this year and his sixth overall for Strikeforce.

The 27-year-old Masvidal has heard conflicting rumors about whether the January show will actually take place.

"I hear January is the last show, and then January isn't the last show," he said. "I don't know. I just hope that if it's completely and utterly dead, I want to go to Strikeforce's funeral, because what's going on is not cool.

"I know a lot of fighters want to be on that January show, so if I get on it, I'll be very thankful. But I don't know if I'm going to be on it. They haven't told me anything."

While fighters put out by the cancellation of a Strikeforce event scheduled for Sept. 29 were given some compensation for their time and effort, Masvidal has yet to receive any for the canceled November event. His rep expects that to arrive soon.

If he does fight in January, Masvidal is open to any opponent. He just wants to work.

"I don't even care if it's Green," he said. "Whoever they've got available. If it's Green, if it's not Green, I don't give a damn. However I can get my money.

"I'm trying to stay in shape if something comes up."

WTF is wrong with SF? With soooo many fighters NEEDING fights, why aren't they booking anyone for the card in January? The UFC is already booking fights for ******* June but SF can't book a fight 2 months out? Time to start getting fighters in camp. If I was Jorge I would be taking the sure thing with DREAM. Well I guess that card isn't a "sure thing" but atleast they are attempting to put a card together. Something SF doesn't appear to be doing.

I wonder if there's some sort of inactivity clause in the contracts. Masvidal said ages ago that he wants a fight..

I'm not sure. But I know SF is allowing Jordan Mein to fight against Forrest Petz at Score Fighting. So why not let Jorge take a fight elsewhere? If not then sign him to fight on the January card, simple as that.
