Video Flashback: Saturday Night Strikeforce Main Eventer Jorge Masvidal Kicking Ass and Taking Names in the Street

(“Gamebred” used to be a moneyweight fighter.)

Heading into Saturday night’s Strikeforce show, not a lot of people are giving lightweight challenger Jorge Masvidal much of a chance against champ Gilbert Melendez for various different reasons.

One is the disparity in fight records between the two. Another is that Melendez has never been finished. And a third is that Gilbert hasn’t lost a fight since 2008.

The one wildcard factor Masvidal has going for him is how much of a beating he can take and still keep coming forward. His granite chin rivals anyone’s in the game, which could make for an interesting brawl come Saturday night.

If you’ve seen his pair of street fights against Kimbo Slice protegee Ray, you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t, check them out after the jump.
