Off injury list
December 24, 2021
Masvidal (undisclosed) indicated Thursday that he's "off the injury list" and is looking into booking fights, reports.
Masvidal has reportedly hinted at being interested in matchups with Jake Paul, Conor McGregor and Colby Covington along with re-booking a bout with Leon Edwards, who he was scheduled to fight before a rib injury forced his withdrawal.
Edwards fight off
November 10, 2021
Masvidal was forced to withdraw from his fight against Leon Edwards at UFC 269 due to an undisclosed injury, Brett Okamoto of reports.
There is no word yet from the UFC as to whether this bout will be rebooked. Masvidal was hoping to get back on track following back-to-back losses to Kamaru Usman. As for Edwards, he is riding a nine-fight winning streak. The next opportunity for both men will likely be announced in the coming weeks.
Will fight against Edwards
October 11, 2021
Masvidal will take on Leon Edwards in a welterweight matchup at UFC 269 on Dec. 11, Mike Bohn of USA Today reports.
Masvidal and Edwards have had an ongoing rivalry that started in 2019 when both fighters were involved in a backstage incident at a UFC event in London, and they'll finally settle the score in this bout. While the contracts for the fight have not been signed yet, the bout agreements have been sent to both parties. Masvidal may be coming off back-to-back losses to champion Kamaru Usman, but a win over a top contender like Edwards -- who is riding a nine-fight winning streak -- could get his name right back in the title conversation.
Aiming to return this year
July 5, 2021
Masvidal's manager, Abraham Kawa, said the fighter is aiming to return to the octagon before the end of the year, according to MMA reporter Ariel Helwani.
Masvidal is targeting a return in October or November, and he's aiming at two high-profile rivals, according to Kawa -- he wants to fight either Nick Diaz or Colby Covington. The 36-year-old will try to get back to winning ways after losing to Kamaru Usan in April this year.
Again toppled by Kamaru Usman
April 24, 2021
Masvidal again came up short in his quest for the UFC Welterweight Championship on Saturday, falling to Kamaru Usman via KO (punch) at 1:02 of Round 2 at UFC 261 in Jacksonville.
Masvidal's durability is legendary, and while few expected him to actually win here, even fewer saw it ending like this. There was reason to believe Masvidal would fare a bit better with a full training camp under his belt as opposed to the first fight between the two he took on short notice, but it never materialized. Jorge has been a good solider and excellent fighter for many, many years, but there is a clear talent and physicality gap between these two. Saturday's disappointment aside, there's still reason to believe Masvidal can be an effective fighter moving forward. Sure, he isn't on the level of Usman, and he may never get back into title contention at age 36 and 50 professional fights into his career, but Jorge keeps himself in great shape and figures to return in the fairly near future.
