The walkout song for a fighter embodies the persona of the fighter. As soon as the music hits, it sends the audiences in the arena and the people in front of their screens into a frenzy. So is the case for Jorge Masvidal.
Jorge Masvidal has a personality that exudes calm before destruction. He often keeps his hands behind his back during the faceoffs and the press conferences. Masvidal always has a smirk on his face which is a signal that he has very evil intentions.
Hence, his walkout song is the perfect vessel to let the fans know what is about to take place. Masvidal comes out with the theme music of the movie ‘Scarface.’
Hollywood legend Al Pacino plays the lead role in the movie. A Hispanic gangster who had a rough time growing up and had the ambition to achieve it all. It parallels the life of the Street Jesus perfectly. Hence, whenever the melody of this film hits a UFC arena, people know they’re about to see something spectacular.
UFC 239: Jorge Masvidal vs Ben Askren
Perhaps the fight that made Jorge Masvidal a viral sensation despite an elongated career, was against Ben Askren at UFC 239. After an absence of 2 years, Masvidal made a triumphantly return to the Octagon with a flashy knock out of Darren Till.
He then followed it up with a 5-second knockout of Ben Askren. It started the ritual of him putting his hands behind his back and leaning against the cage wall before the referee gives him the signal to fight.
UFC 244: Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz
If the Ben Askren fight made him a viral sensation, then the main event of UFC 244 made him the megastar that he is right now. It was also the first event in MMA history to be attended by the POTUS (President of The United States of America).
The contest itself was a fairly one-sided one. He beat Diaz up so badly, that the referee had no choice but to stop the fight. That was the last win of Gamebred’s career. After that, he fought for the welterweight title against Kamaru Usman and lost both of those.
Masvidal will fight Colby Covington at UFC 272
This weekend he will be back in action against Colby Covington at UFC 272. The rivalry between these two has been one that developed in the gym over the years. Both have accused the other of misdeeds and have turned up the level of trash talk during the fight week.
