Baddest motherf@%$er Jorge Masvidal has had a pretty good year, and in his latest move, he will be doing color commentary alongside UFC bantamweight Julianna Pena and play-by-play commentator Max Bretos, at Combate Americas' pay-per-view debut on Saturday. 
 
“The UFC’s BMF champ Jorge Masvidal is joining forces with MMA’s dynamic duo of Julianna Peña and Max Bretos to form the most explosive commentary team in the sport this Saturday for the biggest fight of the year,” said CEO Campbell McLaren to Damon Martin for MMA Fighting.
 
The main event is Tito Ortiz vs. Alberto “El Patron” with the winner taking possession of the UFC and WWE belts, owned by Ortiz and Del Rio.

Jorge is a really articulate guy, and it's impressive how fluidly he can transition between speaking English and Spanish. It's kind of incredible how his career has taken off this year, and hopefully he'll make a massive amount of cash in 2020 in the cage and then wrap it up to go on to working in broadcasting, coaching, and whatever. 

By the way:

"The strong recent run of ratings for Combate Americas has continued. Back in June, the Latin fighter-focused MMA promotion pulled in higher ratings (an average of 416,000 viewers) than UFC prelims on ESPN and a Bellator event on Paramount. This past weekend, they again beat Bellator, ONE Championship and Professional Fighters League events."
