  • Jorge Masvidal is the former UFC BMF Champion.
  • Masvidal has a 35-17 MMA record.
  • Masvidal announced his retirement in his fight with Gilbert Burns.

Former UFC BMF Champion Jorge Masvidal is currently on a three-fight losing skid as he suffered back-to-back title defeats from former champion Kamaru Usman and former teammate Colby Covington. But “Gamebred” still holds the UFC record for the fastest knockout in history with his famous 5-second flying knee against Ben Askren in July 2019.

Masvidal followed this incredible victory with a third-round TKO win over Nate Diaz to capture the UFC BMF Title in November 2019. These triumphs propelled him to be a household name in BetMGM’s online sportsbook through the UFC odds. But when will Masvidal return inside the Octagon?
