Masvidal enthused, “In the history of the world, the greatest president is sitting right there,” pointing at the former president, as the Florida crowd burst into applause.
“I’m a huge fan of that guy,” he added.
Addressing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Masvidal stated, “We’re fortunate to have the most outstanding governor here in Florida. Let’s preserve Florida’s liberty and ensure it remains a red state.”
Next, he prompted the audience to join in on the anti-President Biden chant.

Jorge Masvidal references the infamous chant at the event
“Let’s take our nation back from — you know who, the Let’s Go Brandon fellow… it’s time for a change,” he passionately yelled, referring to the 80-year-old President Biden.
The phrase the people were chanting traces back to 2021 when an NBC reporter interviewing Brandon Brown, a NASCAR driver, misheard a crude chant from the crowd cursing President Biden as a chant for Brandon Brown.
This misunderstanding transformed the phrase into a viral sensation among conservatives.
Boasting the record for the swiftest knockout in UFC history, Masvidal achieved this feat merely five seconds into a match.
Trump and White have maintained a close relationship over time; throughout the years, a friendship has blossomed between Trump and Jorge Masvidal. Masvidal faces Gilbert Burns in a welterweight match as the co-main event.
In the past, Masvidal has also demonstrated support for the 45th president.This article appeared in Right Wing Insider and has been published here with permission.
