UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal announced his retirement from the professional fight in Miami Saturday night after losing to Gilbert Burns after three rounds. During his speech, he hailed Donald Trump as the “greatest president” and joined the “Let’s go Brandon” chant against President Joe Biden.
The “The King of Miami” was joined by comedian and UFC commentator Joe Rogan in the ring on Saturday. After announcing his retirement, Masvidal took the mic to give a shoutout to Trump, who attended the wrestling match after he was arraigned on 34 counts of felony charges in Manhattan earlier this week.
“I wanted to say, greatest president in the history of the world sitting right there,” he said, pointing at the ex-president, as the Florida crowd erupted in cheers. I love that guy,” he added.
He also piled on the praise on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is slated to be Trump’s biggest competitor in the 2024 Republican primary, even though DeSantis is yet to make his candidacy for the White House official. “We also got the greatest governor of all time here in Florida,” he said. “Let’s keep Florida free, a red state…”
Masvidal then asked the crowd to join him in chanting the anti-Biden slogan. “And let’s take back — you know who, Let’s go Brandon motherf—er … replace him,” he shouted.
