Jorge Masvidal announced his retirement from the UFC after losing to Gilbert Burns on Saturday night in Miami.

‘I don’t feel the same when I get in here any longer,’ he stated to Joe Rogan after the loss.

‘I love all of you. Thank you everybody for watching. This is where I started my career.

‘Sometimes your favorite basketball player ain’t got that three-pointer no more, your favorite quarterback loses that rifle.

‘It’s been 20-something years. I’m a multi-millionaire. I had nothing when I started. I’m out.’

Burns of Brazil won a unanimous decision over Jorge Masvidal, with the judges scoring the bout 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 in his favor.

Throughout the night, Jorge Masvidal was subjected to a barrage of punishments from Burns.

Burns dominated for much of the battle after hitting Jorge Masvidal with a variety of takedowns.

He also connected with multiple right-hands late in the fight, obviously rocking and staggering the hometown hero.

After fighting 52 times in his career, the 38-year-old was forced to retire from the sport.

Jorge Masvidal also paid tribute to Donald Trump, a major fan, by having the former president in attendance on fight night.

‘I also just want to say the greatest president in the history of the world is sitting right there,’ Masvidal said of Trump. ‘I love that guy.’

Burns then paid his respects to veteran Jorge Masvidal.

‘We’re here because of this guy, 52 pro fights,’ Burns told the crowd, which screamed ‘Let’s go Jorge’ the entire time. ‘Give it up for him.’

Masvidal, 39, entered the bout on a three-fight losing streak, having lost back-to-back championship attempts to Kamaru Usman and a unanimous decision to longtime rival Colby Covington.
