Last year, UFC fighter Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal lived his best life.
The Miami based Cuban street fighter turned professional mixed martial artist fought three times and scored three wins. Masvidal was a protege of deceased street fighter turned MMA legend, Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson.
All of which were KO/TKO’s.
His final fight last year, a sell-out blockbuster at UFC 244 against Nate Diaz, earned him the inaugural BMF title (Bad M*therf*cker). It was at the fight, which was attended by current President Donald Trump, that Masvidal caught the attention of Mr. MAGA himself.
Masvidal told Business Insider recently that it was “pretty cool” to have scored a knockout in front of #45.
“He’s going through a lot getting impeached but no matter what your views on him, that’s one bad motherf*&ker. He’s done a lot of crazy sh*t that a lot of people wish they could do.”
Masvidal revealed his plans to visit the White House at the invitation of Trump. He also took a jab at UFC welterweight Colby “Chaos” Covington who has been Trump’s loudest MMA fighting supporter.
“We’ve got an invitation to the White House so we’ll be stopping at some point. Mr. Trump asked us to go. Not like other fighters who get their jaw broken and are begging, ‘Please. please Mr. President take me to your Oval Office.’ We got a formal invite and everything. He saw my work and thought, ‘This one cool, young man let’s bring this guy on by.'”
Masvidal’s reference was to Covington’s TKO loss to UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman at UFC 245. Currently, Masvidal is beefing with both Usman and Covington while he eyes big fights for 2020, including a hopeful showdown with the returning Conor McGregor.
