He would then become the first-ever BMF champion in the UFC as he beat Nate Diaz. Having enjoyed all that success, Masvidal will now appear on MTV cribs.

Masvidal, however, has only fought once so far in 2020. The lack of fights has not affected his star power outside the cage, as he has plenty of opportunities outside the octagon. It seems like a role in Hollywood could be in store for ‘Gamebred’.

Jorge Masvidal on MTV Cribs

The welterweight contender took to Twitter to let fans know that he will be making an appearance on MTV’s Cribs. He wrote, “Grew up watching this show and now I’m on it. Check out the brand new season of @MTVCribsMonday at 8 pm eastern #theresurrection.”

In the promo attached to the tweet, Masvidal took fans around his American Top Team gym. It cut to footage of him showing the place around, “Got the octagon over here. This is rough, you know. So the guys that do this on a daily basis develop that tolerance and it becomes so enjoyable and fun, you know.”

Masvidal continued, “We’ll go to my favorite section. The Dungeon of Doom, Let’s Go.” Gamebred also sent out a warning, “Take your shoes off before you step in. I’m talking to you MTV.”

The BMF champion concluded, “Wana sharpen your tools? If you’ve never seen this sit down. Grab your popcorn and enjoy yourself. Do you want to be the best? You gotta get after it, baby.” 

Masvidal will be featured in Monday night’s episode of the popular television series.
