Chael Sonnen Recalls Brilliant Story Of How Jorge Masvidal Knocked Out Three Men In A Nightclub
BMF champ Jorge Masvidal landed devastating knockouts on three men during a heated altercation in a nightclub, according to Chael Sonnen.
During the latest episode of Beyond the Fight, Sonnen revealed that UFC legend Michael Bisping told him the story about Masvidal in the nightclub.
Sonnen, who is an MMA analyst for ESPN, claims that two men initially approached Masvidal and one of them 'flicked' the UFC star's "gold chain necklace."
And Masvidal, 35, apparently thought that the two men were going to rob him.
Sonnen explained on his YouTube channel: "Now if you ever hear a story [of a guy knocking three people out at a bar], you've met a liar. Except if that guy is Jorge Masvidal.
"Jorge is at a club wearing a gold chain necklace [...] and these two guys that he doesn't know go up to him -- and one of the guys flicks the necklace.
"Jorge doesn't know how to interpret that but thinks these guys are gonna rob him.
"So Jorge knocks out the guy who touched the necklace, then turns with a hook and knocks out the other guy."
Masvidal then decided to keep a low profile while the scene unfolded and took shelter in the bathroom.
But when 'Gamebred' planned to make his quick exit from the bathroom, a third man appeared and he met the same fate as Masvidal's other two victims.
"He decides he's gotta lay low while the scene is unfolding so he ducks into the bathroom," Sonnen said.
"When he goes -- a guy comes in right behind him -- so Jorge knocks that guy out.
"So the question becomes, 'Jorge, why did you knock the guy out in the bathroom? What if he wasn't with them or had nothing to do with them at all?' Jorge said, 'I couldn't take the risk.'
Sonnen revealed that he called up Masvidal and asked for his permission to tell the story.
But the 42-year-old also suggested that it showed an important message about the mindset of the BMF champ.
He said: "I call Masvidal [to see if I can tell the story on my YouTube channel] [...] Masvidal says, 'Yeah, man, cool.'
"That's all he says to me then hangs up the phone.
"It lets you into the mind of Jorge Masvidal -- the guy lives by his code, and I suggest if you wanna get into Jorge Masvidal's wheelhouse, you might wanna learn the code to not overstep."
'Gamebred' has his eyes set on a mega-fight with UFC superstar Conor McGregor later this year.
But Masvidal, who attended McGregor's comeback victory against Donald Cerrone last Saturday, believes that the Irishman doesn't want to fight him.
