As for the event, it has been promoted by Masvidal, the UFC, and most notably UFC President Dana White. Although some may have felt as White may be opposed to it, the UFC boss has shown nothing but support for his fighter and his new venture. Currently, there is no confirmation if White will be present at the event himself or not.
To date, Gamebred Boxing 4 remains the promotion’s biggest and most anticipated event. Moreover, Jorge joins a whole host of UFC fighters to have their own fighting promotion. However, Eagle FC’s future remains in doubt, especially after Khabib Nurmagomedov’s departure from the sport.
