UFC 244 Masvidal v Diaz


Jorge Masvidal’s recent rise to fame has weirdly overshadowed his 17 years of hard work, determination, and sacrifice in this sport. He started his career at HOOKnSHOOT: Absolute Fighting Championship in 2003 and then went on to have small stints at PRIDE, Bellator and Strikeforce. Masvidal was bought over to the UFC after the dissolution of Strikeforce in 2013.  


Before all these promotions though, Masvidal used to be a street fighter. You can see some of his early fights at Kimbo Slice’s backyard on YouTube.


Below is his fight with one of Slice’s students, Ray.  



In 2017, after back-to-back losses against Stephen Thompson and Demian Maia, Masvidal took a year off from the sport. Masvidal claimed that he needed the break to recharge himself, more physically than mentally. He said that he began to change his way of life, something that helped him post his break.


In his comeback fight against Darren Till, he unleashed a beating on the Englishman at UFC Fight Night 147, winning the fight via a vicious KO. That same night, Masvidal famously gave Leon Edwards a ‘3 piece with the soda’ after a backstage brawl between the two. Masvidal then went on to secure the fastest knockout in UFC history by knocking out bitter rival Ben Askren in just five seconds.

His net worth has skyrocketed due to the last two bouts with Nate Diaz and Kamaru Usman. In 2020, Masvidal went into the mezcal business with Recuerdo Mezcal, which is one of the top-selling mezcals in Mexico.


What is Jorge Masvidal’s Net Worth in 2021?


UFC 244 Masvidal v Diaz


Outlets like wealthyperson.com have reported his net-worth to be around $14 million while celebritynetworth has estimated Masvidal’s net worth to be around $ 6 million. Masvidal is a veteran of the sport with a record of 35-14-0. However, it's his recent resurrection that has put him among the top earners. 


It shows that Masvidal currently calls the shots too. He famously denied the first of many attempts by the UFC to book him against Usman due to salary issues, which prompted following sarcastic comments from Dana White post UFC 250 -

"Being the financial wizard he is, I'm assuming his numbers are correct,"

Masvidal, to his credit, stuck to his demands and secured himself a hefty payday after he accepted the fight against Usman in just six days’ notice. That sealed his status as one of the top dogs in the company. His upcoming rematch with Kamaru Usman for the welterweight championship will certainly nudge up his finances.

As mentioned above, the mezcal El Recuerdo de Oaxaca Joven has Masvidal’s seal of approval. Apart from that, he has the backing of reputed brands like Reebok and MetroPCS. In 2020, Masvidal became Bespoke Extracts, Inc.’s official brand ambassador.


In October 2020, Masvidal who is a supporter of Trump launched his  "Fighters Against Socialism" campaign along with the former president. 


Masvidal’s response to why he is behind this campaign was -

“Obviously I am not a politician, I may not be schooled in a lot of these political issues like some of you, but I do know Latinos. Latinos are not lazy people looking for a handout. Latinos don’t want free stuff, we want freedom.”
