Jorge Masvidal is no longer set on fighting Conor McGregor.

The UFC welterweight contender said he's still interested but doesn't believe McGregor is.

"I'm moving on from that fight," Masvidal said Monday during "Ariel Helwani's MMA Show." "This dude doesn't want the fight. I'm not here to bully him."

Masvidal said he's now focused on a potential meeting with welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. UFC president Dana White said Saturday that Usman versus Masvidal is the fight to make.

"I guess it's Usman's head," Masvidal said. "(McGregor has) sealed Usman's fate now. This guy doesn't want to f------ fight, man. Leave him be. ... Usman, you're a punk motherf------, you're dead."

Masvidal said his belief that McGregor has no interest in the fight comes from the fact that the Irishman didn't mention "Gamebred" after his win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 on Saturday in Las Vegas.

"He could've cut the sickest promo of all time, he could've just done a good promo," Masvidal said.

Ultimately, the American Top Team fighter said he's still willing to fight the former two-division champion and that it's simply up to McGregor to make up his mind.

"One of these two guys are gonna have to scrap with me," Masvidal said. "I'm leaning right now toward Usman, the way he's been talking, the shit he's been saying. But if Conor wants it, we'll get it done. It won't be hard to get it done.

"I'm not gonna sit here and entertain bullshit and stuff. I just wanna scrap."
