One of the most underrated lightweights in the world, Jorge Masvidal has taken the next big step toward his great future in MMA. Despite coming from a Kimbo-like, street fighting origins, Masvidal has evolved into one of the best mixed martial artists in the 155 lb division today.
Jorge informed Buddhasport not minutes ago that he has inked a 6 fight, 2 year deal with Strikerforce. An opponent has yet to be announced for the Miami native. Jorge plans to compete in the Strikeforce lightweight division and of course, has his eye on the title. Masvidal sent several texts my way stating:
"I signed a 6 fight, 2 year deal with Strikeforce. Let the world know I am going to knock out everybody they put in front of me. I don't have an opponent yet but I want a big fight; you know. I want Melendez or the next big name. No B level fighters. Beerbohm is good but nobody really knows him. I would like to get Kawajiri, that would be great."
