Former UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal has confirmed that he intends on officially coming out of retirement.

Following a defeat to Gilbert Burns last April, Jorge Masvidal retired from professional mixed martial arts. It served as his fourth straight defeat, bringing his overall record to 35-17. While he didn’t always get his hand raised, ‘Gamebred’ certainly knew how to make an impact both in the cage and on the microphone.

The veteran has since been focusing on running his own promotion. However, as of late, there’s been a lot of talk surrounding him potentially making the walk once again.

In a recent interview, Masvidal has confirmed that the rumblings are true.

“I never just text to talk,” Masvidal told FanSided. “Everything I do I back it up, 100 percent go for it. I’m definitely unretired. I’m definitely gonna hurt some people. I’m definitely gonna box this year and s—t, I just want to get in the best shape possible. Get in that cage again and give it all I got.

“I can’t go out on a f—king L,” he continued. “The more I think about it, it f—king haunts me and hurts me. So, I’m definitely coming back just to f—king rearrange somebody’s face, or faces.”
