Jorge Masvidal and his fighting spirit can be traced back to bare-knuckle fighting in his home state of Florida. Now, Masvidal has announced that he will be launching a bare-knuckle MMA fighting league named after one of his many fighting nicknames.
Masvidal became an online sensation during the height of backyard fighting on Youtube. Specifically, in the city of Miami, Florida. The likes of many from that time make their way to professional mixed martial arts. Names like Masvidal, Kimbo Slice, Alex Caceres, and Dada 5000 are to name a few.
Recently, Dada 5000 stated that he would be starting his bare-knuckle promotion. Now, Masvidal has since said the same and followed the trail, introducing Gamebred Fighting Championships.
