Getty Jorge Masvidal is awarded victory by TKO on a medical stoppage against Nate Diaz in the "BMF" championship bout during UFC 244 at Madison Square Garden on November 02, 2019.

One of the biggest stars in MMA, UFC’s“Baddest Motherf*****” Jorge Masvidal, wrote a cryptic message on social media this weekend possibly hinting at an Octagon return.

“Gamebred” is currently ranked No. 4 in the welterweight division and is coming off a unanimous decision loss to champion Kamaru Usman in July. Since the defeat, Masvidal has remained virtually silent about his fighting future. However, the fighter excited fans on Saturday with a tweet.

Masvidal responded to TSN’s Robin Black, who shared a hype video of Gamebred and wrote, “1% of the 1%.”

In response to Black, Masvidal tweeted, “Damn this got me hyped. My brother @robinblackmma with the top 1% of the 1%. Just give me 2 more weeks #andnew.”

Later in the day, Masvidal tweeted, “Just a s**c from the streets who loves to fight. I’ll give you more to write about. I’ll give you more to cheer about. I’ll give you more to hate about #supernecessary.”

It’s possible that Masvidal is hinting at a fight announcement coming soon. For months, he has been linked to No. 1 ranked welterweight Colby Covington for a potential bout. The two are former training partners turned bitter enemies and the fight has massive divisional stakes.

Should the fight happen, the winner of Covington vs. Masvidal could produce the title challenger who would compete against the winner of UFC 258’s Usman vs. No. 2 ranked Gilbert Burns.

Masvidal Had a Star-Making Year in 2019

Masvidal has been known by the hardcore MMA fan base for years, however Gamebred was thrust into the limelight in 2019. He earned three massive victories that year, starting with a knockout of England’s Darren Till.

The fight took place in London, and Masvidal was firmly in enemy territory. Not to be deterred, he took out the hometown hero and earned his first victory since 2017. Then, he fought former ONE and Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren in a high-profile fight. Gamebred landed the fast knockout in UFC history, smashing “Funky” with a flying knee.

He was then catapulted into the “Baddest Motherf*****” title fight against Nate Diaz. Gamebred looked as impressive as ever and defeated the Stockton, California native by doctor’s stoppage.
