‘Gamebred’ has always been one of the toughest fighters in the world, but his popularity skyrocketed in 2019. Masvidal took on Ben Askren in a grudge match at UFC 239 and got the win in spectacular fashion. He landed a flying knee which knocked out Askren in just 5 seconds, which is the fastest knockout in UFC history.

However, it seems like despite being a huge star, he still is very generous. A fan recently thanked Masvidal for his generosity by directly messaging him.
