UFC superstar Jorge Masvidal is a massive critic of the Cuban regime. His father originally made his way to the United States on a raft made of tires, a journey he took in order to escape the Castro regime.
Masvidal has long used his platform to speak out against far left movements, including the rise of such sentiments in the United States. “Since I can remember, I’ve been getting speeches from my dad about what the communist government looks like. From my uncles, my aunts, my cousins that came over later on in life and dropped their knowledge and wisdom on me. So I’m against anything that stands against freedom. Give me death or give me freedom,” he said last July.
Masvidal has also attended several Trump rallies and is an avid supporter of the 45th President. Trump became the first sitting President to attend a UFC event when he attended Masvidal vs. Diaz at UFC 244. “I bet I can get a couple of teammates and start attending these things,” Masvidal said in regards to a video of Antifa attacking Trump supporters back in November.
In recent weeks, Masvidal has been a vocal supporter of the widespread protests against the Cuban regime. He released a video lending his support in both English and Spanish.
“Gamebred” also called Colin Kaepernick a “coward” in an Instagram post. “Know your history and facts. Cowards like this fool should be sent to live in Cuba, see what they say after a day there,” said Masvidal. Kaepernick notoriously wore a shirt praising Fidel Castro before a game in Miami of all places.
