Jorge Masvidal is not a fan of civilian violence.
Footage recently went viral of a man getting knocked out by “BLM rioters” during a MAGA march in Washington D.C. in support of Donald Trump and his claims of voter fraud on Saturday.
It was among a number of scuffles that took place between pro and anti-Trump supporters present at the march.

It wasn’t clear who exactly started this particular altercation as footage showed the man who got knocked out attacking and harassing others, including women, just moments before.
Not showing what happened prior to this really fits your narrative, doesn’t it? https://t.co/FxBlJX1RlI

Masvidal Wants To Keep The Peace
Regardless, Masvidal wasn’t a fan of what went down.
Quoting the video of the man who was knocked unconscious, Masvidal — who has become an ardent Trump supporter in recent months — reacted in a way that only he could.
“I bet I can get a couple of teammates and start attending these things #supernecessary
He would later clarify that his tweet was only with the intention of keeping the peace.
“And I say this not to promote violence. To keep the peace. We are all in this together #theressurection“

Regardless of political affiliation, violence among civilians should not be taking place on the streets. Hopefully, incidents like this don’t become a regular feature in the next few weeks.
