Masvidal seen urging supporters to elect Donald Trump once again

Jorge Masvidal is one of the most well-known fighters in the UFC. Masvidal had a stellar 2019 that started with a knockout win over Darren Till, followed by a record-breaking knockout over Ben Askren and winning the BMF title fight against Nate Diaz by the end of the year.

Since then, Masvidal has become one of the most in-demand athletes in the UFC. ‘Gamebred’ has since been seen everywhere from podcasts to shows to the cover of UFC 4. Therefore, it was no surprise when it was announced that he would join Donald Trump Jr. on a tour bus across Miami.

Jerry Jones is open to holding McGregor vs Poirier 2 at AT&T stadium

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier have finally agreed to fight each other. Outside working out the contracts, the fighters and the UFC both seem optimistic about this actually happening.

McGregor had teased that the Poirier-McGregor fight will take place inside the AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. With Texas allowing fans for live shows again, the UFC could feasibly book AT&T Stadium and fill it to half capacity to welcome crowds back. By that point, it would be 11 months without fans in UFC events.
