Jorge Masvidal - what is 'Gamebred's' UFC record?

Jorge Masvidal has a great UFC reputation but his record isn't quite as impressive

All eyes will be on Jorge Masvidal when he returns to UFC action in front of a packed out crowd in Florida.

Fans have been unable to attend events for over a year since the coronavirus pandemic started with events taking place behind closed doors.

‘Gamebred’ announced that he would be making his return to the octagon for the first time since UFC 251 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi when he was comprehensively beaten by Kamaru Usman.

Despite this, Masvidal took the fight with just a week’s notice after Gilbert Burns pulled out of the Welterweight Championship fight due to testing positive for COVID-19.

But Masvidal will get a second bite of the cherry as his rematch with Usman will be the main event at UFC 261, which takes place at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

The Mexican fighter made his debut in Dana White’s famous octagon in a fight with Tim Means back in 2013 after working his way up through Strikeforce.

Masvidal has gone through his career so far without being knocked out and even managed to beat Nate Diaz in an impressive fashion in 2019. But his defeat to Usman in the first fight means that his record now stands at 35-14-0.

The below is a round-up of his UFC record with opponent, result, date and event, finishing round, and how the fight was won/lost.
