Miami favorite son Jorge Masvidal featured in new Trump ad targeting Hispanic voters

by | Oct 21, 2020

The Trump campaign pulled no punches on Tuesday, releasing a new ad featuring UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal blasting Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for his 47 years in politics.

A superstar inside the octagon, Masvidal — aka “Gamebred Fighter” — has been unapologetic in recent weeks, letting his fans know whose corner he’ll be in on Election Day. The Miami native currently holds the BMF Championship, but has taken a short break from serving his opponents a “3 piece with a soda,” and has joined forces with President Donald Trump in recent weeks to serve Biden and the Democratic Party a potential haymaker among Hispanic voters.

In the new ad, titled “UFC Champion Jorge Masvidal,” he highlights why he’s voting for Trump in 2020 and outlines why “Democrats don’t own the Latino vote.”

“The Democrats just think that they’re entitled to the Latino vote. They think that we just have to hand it over to them,” Masvidal says at the start of the ad. “That’s right. We sure as hell don’t.”

The clip comes from a “Fighters Against Socialism” tour that Masvidal attended last week alongside Donald Trump Jr., U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, MMA fighters, and other Florida officials.

“They gotta show us what they can do for us — what they can do for our communities,” he continues in the ad. “We’re not gonna buy the same ‘woof tickets’ and false promises that destroyed great countries like Venezuela and Cuba. It’s not gonna happen.”

Masvidal also took shots at Biden’s long career in public office and for pandering to the minority voting-bloc at a Hispanic Heritage Month Event in Kissimmee, Florida.

One of the best pound for pound Welterweights in the UFC, Masvidal has not shied away from the campaign trail. He has appeared at numerous events for the President — most recently at last week’s town hall event in Miami. He’s also been vocal about his support for Trump, as well as Governor Ron DeSantis.

Masvidal, 35, was born to a Cuban father and Peruvian mother. His father, Jorge Masvidal Sr., escaped communist Cuba to South Florida on a self-made raft built with tractor tires.
