Fans can see Masvidal expressing his desire to become a pilot.  He said, “Is it too late to become a pilot? Just give up the fighting and full blast switch on over here. I mean, I got the reflexes, right?”

Jorge Masvidal claims he felt defeated

Masvidal went up with the air force’s crew high up in the sky, where the F-16 viper and F-22 models got into a friendly competition. The most difficult part for the UFC fighter seemed to be in adjusting to the G-force. Following the flight, the UFC fighter said, “I feel like a defeated person man being on that jet. That jet kicked my butt. The speed, the power, the technology. WOW! When they cut the corner, you just feel like an ant.”

He also compared the experiences of fighting against an opponent with the thrill of flying high in the air.

Being in the ring is a joke man. You’re up against another human being. This thing is going above 500 miles per hour. You’re fighting elements. Humans the same as me, they live, they breathe. It’s a joke compared to this. It’s not comparable.” 

Masvidal posted a lot of him flying
