UFC 287 might turn out to be the last time we will see Jorge Masvidal in the Octagon.

One of the fan-favorites in the UFC, “Gamebred” has been on a decline following his five-second knockout of Ben Askren and the BMF title grab over Nate Diaz. The 38-year-old is currently on a three fight losing streak, with his last victory dating back to 2019.

If I lose, I’m pretty much calling it quits: Jorge Masvidal 

The upcoming clash against Gilbert Burns, which serves as the co-main event at UFC 287 on 8th April in Miami, serves as a chance for Masvidal to bounce back into a victory. However, he sees the fight as an ultimatum, and states that if he loses once again, it might be time for him to consider hanging up the gloves for good.

“This could be the last one,” said Masvidal on the UFC 287 edition of “Countdown”, “If I lose, I’m pretty much calling it quits. But a win against Gilbert means that things are headed in the right direction. So if I roll the dice and I do everything right, I’m going for it all. For one title, or many titles.”

Masvidal’s third round TKO victory over Diaz for the BMF belt back in November 2019 at UFC 244 was followed by two back to back losses to the then 170-pound champ Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 and UFC 261, and in his latest outing in the cage, “Street Jesus” went down against Colby Covington at UFC 272 in March 2022. Now returning to the cage after a year, Masvidal wants to give his all into the fight against Burns.

“I think I’m at my best right now,” Masvidal went on, “My mental, my physical, now I’ve got to go out there and prove it. I’ve got my back up against the wall but I get to start my resurrection here in Miami, Dade County, the city that birthed me, that made me, that molded me, so I’m more than excited. April 8, I give it all I got and I win we keep rolling that dice until we get that f****** belt. Let’s go.” [H/T MMA Fighting]
