Jorge Masvidal made a noticeable physical transformation, leaving MMA fans stunned at the Power Slap 6 event. Held at the Durango Casino and Resorts in Las Vegas, the star-studded event brought together UFC stars, musicians, NFL stars, and internet personalities to enjoy an evening of entertainment. However, it was Masvidal’s changed appearance that stole the spotlight.
In a recent video captured at the event, Masvidal was seen alongside internet streamer Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, which drew attention to his noticeably bulkier and out-of-shape physique. The surprise among fans was evident, especially considering Masvidal’s previous reputation for maintaining a fit and athletic figure. Even his choice of attire did little to hide his stockier appearance.
Jorge Masvidal retired from professional MMA after his last bout with Gilbert Burns at UFC 287. Since then, retirement life seems to have taken a toll, resulting in him gaining some extra weight. However, recent rumors suggest that Masvidal has had a change of heart and announced his comeback from retirement. Speculation is rife that he may face Nate Diaz in a boxing match slated for this March, although no official announcements have been made yet.
Fans couldn’t help but react to Masvidal’s latest physique revelation. Given his stature amongst the fighting community, the unexpected change sparked various discussions on social media platforms. Some fans jokingly suggested that the image must have been stretched, while others expressed disappointment at Masvidal’s apparent decline. One even humorously attributed his transformation to indulging in too many Cuban sandwiches.
Despite the surprise, it’s important to note that Masvidal aims to return to combat sports in one form or another. The excitement surrounding a potential boxing match against Nate Diaz has ignited interest among both fans and pundits alike.
