A recent video grab to his Twitter saw Jorge Masvidal cruise around La Baz, California in an open-air roadster. The ‘BMF’ lives up to his moniker in more ways than one, and his trip in the Polaris Slingshot is a testament to that. Chiefly, he has endeared himself to fight fans by the manner in which he carries himself.

The 2019 fighter of the year reached mainstream acclaim after a slew of highlight-reel performances. His profile continued to grow astronomically, and he’s now a bonafide star in the promotion. Moreover, his lifestyle changes roaming around Miami, and traveling in private jets to Fight Island have bolstered his image. In terms of active fighters on the roster, he’s one of the biggest stars.
Jorge Masvidal: An overview
305’s favorite son had invested many years in the fight game before finally making it into the big leagues. He has almost 50 professional fights under his belt and has scalped wins over some massive names on his resume. Additionally, his legend was enhanced by his background as a street fighter in Miami’s Kimbo Slice circuit.
What’s more, 2019 marked one of the most successful years for an athlete in the company’s storied history. Jorge Masvidal kicked things off by obliterating former title challenger in Darren Till in his home country. Not to mention, he outdid himself when he earned a company best five-second KO over Ben Askren.
Furthermore, he followed up on his decapitation of Askren with a ‘BMF’ or Baddest MotherFu**er title fight against Diaz. Jorge Masvidal continued on his success with a Doctor’s stoppage win over Nate Diaz.
‘Gamebred’ is coming off a loss in his last outing against Kamaru Usman for the undisputed strap. He took the fight on six days’ notice at UFC 251 when Gilbert Burns tested positive for COVID-19. Masvidal went five rounds with ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ and will be looking to get back to winning ways to prove that 2019 was not a flash in the pan.
Although 2020 hasn’t been his best in-cage year, he has still forged new paths in his career. Jorge Masvidal landed on the cover for EA’s UFC 4 alongside Israel Adesanya, which shows his drawing power.
