Jorge Masvidal Teases UFC Return Date Later in 2021

Last updated

The UFC ‘BMF’ Champion Jorge Masvidal recently spoke to iFL TV and indicated that he plans on returning to the octagon in either August or September of this year.

‘Right now I’m just focusing on the MMA, I’ve got some guys to beat up,’ Masvidal said when asked about any potential boxing matchups in the near future. ‘August, September, somebody’s getting baptized and that’s what I’m worried about. People are going to like it when they find out who it is.’

Jorge Masvidal on Boxing

Although Masvidal confirmed that UFC is in his near future, he indicated that boxing is something he does want to transition into. ‘That’s definitely a dream,’ Masvidal stated. ‘My first love is boxing, I still love it to this day. Imagine if a champion from MMA could come over and fight a champion from boxing, for me it’s more than a dream. It’s like a fulfilment. I first fell in love with boxing before the UFC. I saw boxing before I ever saw the UFC, so it would just be full circle-type amazingness.’

Jorge Masvidal’s last fight came at UFC 251 where he stepped in to Kamaru Usman. Usman defeated Masvidal by unanimous decision back at the event in July 2020.
