2019 has been a year for the 35 year old Jorge ‘Gamebred’ Masvidal. When the year started, Masvidal was coming off two close split decision losses in the past two years. His first fight of the year came against upcoming contender Darren Till. Masvidal made easy work of him with a highlight reel knockout. His next fight came against erstwhile undefeated Ben Askren. Masvidal made UFC history with a five second knockout victory in the fight. It was that fight that skyrocketed his stock.
He capped off the year with a win over Nate Diaz that won him the BMF belt in the biggest card of the year. With the situation he is in, Masvidal will be entering the year in a position to call his own shots. According to American Top Team owner, Dan Lambert, Masvidal should take a money fight by cashing in on his current momentum rather than waiting for his first UFC title shot.
“You know, I think if Jorge were 10 years younger, he’d probably be looking for a title fight next,” Lambert told TheLowKickMMA’s Jon Fuentes. “I think at this stage in Jorge’s life and his career I think Jorge wants whatever makes him the most money. So I think Jorge is going to have to wait and see what his options are.
