Jorge Masvidal’s larger than life personality has found its way onto the big screen. The UFC star known as “Gamebred”, who last fought at UFC 251 last July, in which he lost a short-notice five-round decision to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman , inspired a specific move for Cole Young, said Lewis Tan, who portrays the fictional character in Mortal Kombat . The Mortal Kombat reboot film is slated for April after being delayed due to the pandemic. One of the characters is Young, a former mixed martial artist who is the protagonist in the film. Mortal Kombat follows Young as he is hunted by two assassins and gathers a team of fighters to defend Earth in a battle against evil forces. The original inspiration for the film is a video game series that debuted in 1992 and featured incredibly gory fight scenes with finishing moves known as “fatalities”. An original film was released in 1995, and although panned by critics, it was hugely successful at the box office and has since gained cult status. Tan said there is a moment in the film where Young is leaning against the cage with his hands behind his back, a move Masvidal, who holds the UFC’s “BMF” belt, did before knocking out Ben Askren in stunning highlight reel fashion with a flying knee to start a fight in July, 2019. Tan said the move “set the whole MMA community on fire”. Masvidal (35-14) continues to troll Usman looking for a rematch against the champion, who defeated former training partner Gilbert Burns at UFC 258 on February 13. He released a video on his popular YouTube channel where he said he broke Usman’s nose. “Nigerian Nightmare” Usman (18-1) has responded to Masvidal in a number of interviews, stating he wants to fight the Cuban-American again after Masvidal took the fight on short notice and claimed he was not in top shape. Masvidal has used his personality to his advantage over the years, garnering fans and followers for his outspokenness and alternative lifestyle, which includes supporting former US president Donald Trump, wearing silk pyjamas and trash talking endlessly. He has 2.6 million followers on Instagram.
