Jorge Masvidal Slammed By UFC Fans For His Reaction To Donald Trump's Twitter Ban

Jorge Masvidal has threatened to leave Twitter after Donald Trump's ban, with fans slamming the UFC star's reaction on social media.

Trump has been permanently suspended from Twitter "due to risk of further incitement of violence," per a statement from the company.

His loyal fan Masvidal has since reacted, claiming he is prepared to walk away from Twitter, too.

He tweeted: "Not too many places I ain't been kicked out of and since all the cool kids have been kicked off Twitter....

"Follow the leader. Ala din my way out of here #supernecessary."

Masvidal's post supporting the US president did NOT go down too well among some of his followers who blasted the BMF champion.

One said: "Just like a sheep."

A second wrote: "I'll believe it when one of these jokers actually deletes their account. It's just grandstanding."

A third added: "Damn, I used to like this guy! Oh well, he ain't gonna be missed!"

Masvidal, meanwhile, hasn't fought since his lopsided unanimous decision defeat to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 last year.

His defeat to 'The Nigerian Nightmare' snapped a three-fight winning streak which included victories over Darren Till, Ben Askren and Nate Diaz.

The Miami native has since been linked with a grudge match against former teammate Colby Covington.

On Masvidal vs. Covington, UFC president Dana White revealed: "I don't think Masvidal said I don't like that fight stylistically. We're working on that fight.

"It's the fight we want, too, and hopefully we'll get that done this year, too.

"We got nothing but big fights all this year so hopefully we can get a couple of these key ones buttoned up and done and start looking forward to them."
