Jorge Masvidal story time: Growing up in Miami, backyard fights and more | UFC 244 | ESPN MMA

  • Published on Oct 29, 2019
  • Jorge Masvidal takes ESPN MMA’s Brett Okamoto back to the Miami apartment complex he grew up in with his mother. “Gamebred” tells stories about (1:45) having his bike stolen and getting into the fights. He also discusses (6:01) getting a knife pulled on him, (10:45) living in his car, being the “dine and dash king of Miami”, (15:17) trying to hide a bad report card from his mom, (19:41) how he got connected with Dan Lambert at American Top Team and (21:06) fighting in a backyard vs. Kimbo Slice’s protégé Ray. (23:01) Masvidal describes how he can sense danger and how it led to the “3 piece and the soda.”

    great watching Masvidal fight, but the more he talks--the less you can really respect his ghetto bs. Unless you are some ratero ghetto deviant too.

    This interviewer needs work "what did you do without a bike.. Mavidal is like.. I walked" question. He's talking about all the fights he had... Ask him if he ever lost as a kid. Interesting stuff. Not 10 mins on the stolen bike.
