This gentleman is a mainstay in MMA and is one of UFC’s biggest stars.
He made his professional debut 19 years ago – to date! The even in question was the HOOKnSHOOT – Absolute Fighting Championships 3 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
His amateur experience is unknown to date – besides the videos of him you can see floating around the web.
Of Course – we’re talking about Jorge Masvidal. The 37 year old has a professional career consisting of 35 wins and 16 losses. Masvidal became a household name after achieving world’s fastest knock out in the UFC during July 2019 appearance against Ben Askren.
Since then he’s memorialized the moment with a tattoo depicting it – which many fans criticized.
“Masvidal is sporting a new tattoo, appears to be the logo for his wellness brand but… did he put Chakra stones around it?!? 🧐 I need answerssss” one fan writes.
“Masvidal’s knee tattoo is a bigger L than Askren getting KOd by the knee” another fan writes.
Ben Askren was also one of the ‘fans’ that mocked the tattoo saying:
“It’s terrible,” Askren said Wednesday on The MMA Hour. “Oh God, it just looks like crap. That’s something like a teenager gets and you’re like, ‘Oh s***, I thought that was going to look a lot better, I thought this was going to be really badass but it looks kind of dopey.’ He’s rich. He can go to the best tattoo artist in the place.”
Another commenter added: “I’m convinced the tattoo artist did this s**t blindfolded”
Masvidal is currently facing criminal charges and is likely being sidelined. This might not be a bad thing considering he’s racked up 3 losses in a row – of course two are to Usman and one to Covington so Masvidal’s ranking remains steep on the welterweights list.
