Jorge Masvidal has been around the game for quite some time.

The veteran fighter is nearing 10 years in the UFC, as he debuted for the promotion in April 2013. Masvidal (35-15 MMA, 12-8 UFC) didn’t get an easy welcome to the UFC. He was pit against fellow veteran Tom Means in the preliminary card of UFC on FOX 7.

Although he was a UFC newcomer, “Gamebred” already had plenty of experience even back then.

Masvidal had 30 fights under his belt and had already fought for a major title, having challenged Gilbert Melendez for Strikeforce lightweight belt. That night at UFC on Fox 7 in San Jose, Calif., Masvidal bested Means in a very technical standup fight. Masvidal won the fight via unanimous decision, outpointing Means 29–28 on all three judges’ scorecards.
