Jorge Masvidal is not the fan favorite

Reddit fans have let their feelings out. Following Masvidal’s verbal tirade, a fan commented, “I want burns to shut masvidals lights out so bad”.

The guy is past it, he needs to retire or go to Bellator.” The reaction showed that fans think Jorge Masvidal is past his prime. Another fan said “Gilbert would send Masvidal to a Jake Paul boxing match”

A Reddit user said, “Yeah Gilbert proved he can stand and bang with the top of the division, and Mas has nothing for him on the ground.” The fan clearly felt that Gilbert has a better grappling game than Jorge Masvidal. another fan said, “Gilbert is going to beat the s**t out of Masvidal, isn’t he? Gonna be fun”

Jorge Masvidal may be a veteran of the game, but his recent losses have taken away fans’ support from the ‘Gamebred’. Another user wrote, “It’s funny coz Burns will agree to no takedowns. Masvidal doesn’t even want it his own way”. Fans have clearly noticed a chink in Jorge Masvidal’s ground game and opponents would have made a note of that too.

Jorge Masvidal has had a long career, but he is certainly nearer the end. He hasn’t fought since March 2022. The ‘Gamebred’ may have challenged ‘Durinho’ but the result may not please him so much. Having said that is also true that Jorge Masvidal has the striking prowess to floor any fighter in his day. He has 35 wins to back his claim and, listening to his thoughts, it seems he knows it himself.
