Following his loss to Gilbert Burns at UFC 287, Jorge Masvidal has responded to accusations that he used greasing as a tactic during their fight.

Burns had alleged that Masvidal used an old-school lotion technique to gain an advantage during their grappling exchanges, but Masvidal has denied the claims, stating that he has never cheated or been caught for cheating.

Masvidal suggested that Burns should blame his own technique for being "s—tty" and not being able to do anything but hold on the ground.

Masvidal pointed out that there were three commissioners backstage, besides the UFC anti-doping partner United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), and that he has never put on anything to grease his body.

The 38-year-old fighter, who retired after the bout, wants to make it clear that he didn't need any underhanded tactics during his 20-year mixed martial arts (MMA) run.

Masvidal said he's never even had a point taken away from him in his 50-something pro fights, and has never cheated or missed weight.

Masvidal also suggested that the referee, who was constantly touching him and breaking them up during the fight, would have been able to tell if he had been greased.

He believes that there's no difference between grease and sweating, and that Burns is simply trying to slander his name.

Masvidal added that he's not about to cheat, and feels that he doesn't have to cheat to beat any opponent.

He ended by saying that he's just there to compete and let Burns throw whatever he feels like out there.
