Jorge Masvidal Drops UFC Union Bombshell

There have been many discussions in the past regarding the pay of the UFC stars. Now, UFC star himself, Jorge Masvidal while speaking to MMA Hour, recently opened up on bringing attention to UFC fighter pay.



He said:

“Fighters are very individual creatures. We’d have to come together under a roof or something like that and have each other’s best interests at heart. That in itself is a problem.”

Jorge Masvidal provides MMA retirement timeline

Jorge Masvidal had never been finished in the UFC neither via strikes nor submissions. However, that changed at UFC 261 in April of this year. The 36-year-old was beaten via second-round KO in his high-stakes UFC welterweight title rematch against reigning champion Kamaru Usman.

During his appearance on the latest edition of The MMA Hour hosted by Ariel Helwani, Jorge Masvidal opened up about how he has coped with the loss.

Masvidal had previously told Helwani in an ESPN MMA interview that retirement did cross his mind in the immediate aftermath of the defeat.

Helwani reminded Masvidal of those comments in the latest edition of The MMA Hour. ‘Gamebred’ responded by saying:

“Yeah, yeah, but I was like, ‘You know what, let me go back in the gym, see how I’m doing – When I’m sparring, when I’m grappling, when I know I can still hang. Can I still keep up with the dudes, the up-and-coming guys, the good guys?’…Yeah. What better gym than my gym (American Top Team) to find out if I still got it or not, right? So, f**king, still got it, man. I ain’t going nowhere.”

Ariel Helwani proceeded to ask Jorge Masvidal whether he plans on competing in MMA for at least a few more years. Masvidal replied:

“Let’s say two more years.”
