Jorge Masvidal failed to impress the judges as he lost all three rounds to the Brazilian Gilbert Burns. His last few fights have shown that he isn’t the fighter he was a few years ago and announced his retirement during the octagon interview. ‘Gamebred’ also took the opportunity to take a shot at Joe Biden.

The former BMF mentioned his support for Donald Trump after his fight and took a jibe at Joe Biden as well. He said, ” “I want to say, the greatest president in the history of the world [Donald Trump] sitting right there. I love that guy. We also got the greatest governor of all time [Ron DeSantis] here in Florida.”

“Let’s keep Florida free… and let’s take that, you know who [Joe Biden]. Let’s go, Brandon mother f****** out of power and replace him,” said Jorge Masvidal. He then proceeded to start a chant that many people used to criticize Joe Biden. He said, “If I could get it just one time, ‘Let’s go, Brandon’. I’m out y’all. 305 for life.” The “Let’s go, Brandon” slogan has become a euphemistic phrase used to criticize the current President of the United States of America.

What does “Let’s go, Brandon” mean?

The Republican Party representative, Bill Posey, coined the slogan “Let’s go, Brandon” phrase during the House floor speech on October 21, 2021. For many, the phrase felt very cryptic and strange. But, this phrase has grown to be very popular among the people catering to the right-wing ideology. “Let’s go, Brandon” now acts as a stand-in swearing at the US President, Joe Biden.
