Earlier this week, Jorge Masvidal paid a visit to Lee’s Discount Liquor store in Las Vegas, where he signed plenty of Recuerdo Mezcal bottles, a liquor brand he holds a partnership with. A fan approached Masvidal and gave him an epic in-ring introduction in Bruce Buffer’s style as you can see in the video above. Masvidal couldn’t help but applause and you can clearly hear him say “Get his information.”
Masvidal appeared on the latest edition of The MMA Hour hosted by Ariel Helwani. He revealed that he’s hired the fan as an announcer for his bare-knuckle MMA organization Gamebred Fighting Championship Masvidal stated:
“You know, when it first started out, I thought he was gonna fade out like a lot of people do. Then he just kept going. I was, ‘Oh, shit. This guy is serious’. So, guess what we did. We went and hired him.” He continues, “He’s gonna be at the show. He’s gonna do a lot of the opening bouts and stuff. He’s gonna rep for us, you know.”
Ariel Helwani did ask him if they really got the fan’s information and signed him Masvidal replied by stating:
“Oh, immediately after, you know. There was like about 150 people behind him. I was like, ‘Oh, if he can do it like that with all these people behind him, no sweat, he’s ready for the big time, dude. So, we hired him. Yeah.”
Gamebred FC 2 will take place on September 11th, 2021. The event will be headlined by former UFC fighters Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva and Alex Nicholson.
