Jorge Masvidal Retires After Loss to Gilbert Burns by Unanimous Decision at UFC 287

Jorge Masvidal, one of the UFC's top stars, announced his retirement on Saturday in his hometown following a lopsided defeat to Gilbert Burns in the co-main event of UFC 287 in Miami

The unanimous-decision loss (30-27, 30-27 and 29-28) was Masvidal's fourth consecutive defeat. The other three losses also came against the elite of the welterweight division, including two title-challenge setbacks against Kamaru Usman and a loss to Colby Covington last March that earned fight of the night honors.

"I love everybody here," said Masvidal, 38, who retires with 35 wins and 17 losses. "This is where I started my career. It's been a long 20 years, 50-some fights. Sometimes your favorite basketball player don't have that 3-pointer no more. Your favorite quarterback loses that rifle. I don't feel the same when I get in here no more. It's been 20 long years."

"I love this f---ing sport," Masvidal said in his postfight interview Saturday night. "I'm a multi-millionaire. I didn't start with nothing. I can say I'm good for life now."
