Big fight news coming soon— BMF.eth (@GamebredFighter) January 26, 2023
35-16 as a pro, Jorge Masvidal is currently the 11th-ranked welterweight contender in the promotion. He is far from getting a crack at the 170 lbs gold anytime soon. However, that wouldn’t prevent him from sealing a big money fight.
Conor McGregor is possibly looking for a UFC return too and has lost his last two fights against Dustin Poirier at lightweight. His current physique looks way big to be that of a lightweight fighter. If McGregor moves up to 170 lbs, there is a high chance that he faces Jorge Masvidal.

Jorge Masvidal UFC return: Can we see another resurrection from Gamebred?
Jorge Masvidal rose to sheer prominence in 2019, a phase that turned him into a superstar. Following a brief lay-off, the American fighter made his comeback against Darren Till in Till’s home country London in March 2019. Donning a new look with long hair and a beard, Jorge Masvidal called it a resurrection of his career.
Despite being dominated in the first round, Masvidal landed a whopping right left to knock Till out cold. He then faced an undefeated Ben Askren, just to land a five-second KO win. Masvidal’s win over Askren is still the fastest KO in the promotion, which turned ‘Gamebred’ into a household figure.
