Jorge Masvidal Facts

  1. He revealed in an interview that his father had left his native Cuba at a young age on a self-made raft and instead of reaching the United States mainland, had ended up on the US Virgin Islands. He also mentioned that his father had later been imprisoned for manslaughter and drug trafficking and was sentenced to more than 20 years in prison.
  2. Owing to his childhood experiences and his father’s sentencing, Jorge took to streetfighting from a very young age. He had also competed in wrestling at St. Brendan High School where he had studied but could not stay eligible for long because of his academic grades. Hence, he later took to training in mixed martial arts.
  3. On July 6, 2019, he defeated Ben Askren in a bout in just 5 seconds with a flying knee in the first round. It was the fastest knockout victory in the history of the UFC at that time, beating the previous record held by Duane Ludwig. Several MMA media outlets ranked the performance as the ‘Knockout of the Year’.
  4. In 2020, he announced the launch of a mezcal (distilled alcoholic beverage) brand called El Recuerdo de Oaxaca Joven, in partnership with the liquor brand Recuerdo Mezcal.
  5. He runs a self-titled YouTube channel where he uploads vlogs, fitness routines, fight clips, and behind-the-scenes clips from his training sessions. The channel has amassed more than 500k subscribers.
