In his video, Masvidal, who was playing "Street Fighter" on an arcade machine in what appeared to be his kitchen, said: "Nate was right about one thing: I'm no West Coast gangster. I'm from Miami-Dade county. I'm a dirty south goon - damn right I ain't no West Coast gangster."And I'm ready. I'm ready to put it on the line. I'm so gangster with it, besides the 7% tax in Cali, we can do it in Cali."
