Jorge Masvidal Gets Physical With Cody Henderson During Cornhole Face Off, Teases UFC Return

BMF champion Jorge Masvidal took some time away from the Octagon recently to face Cody Henderson in a game of cornhole.

Things between the UFC star and Henderson quickly became physical when they faced off before their game of cornhole:

Henderson would defeat Masvidal by a score of 21-15, but Masvidal plans on improving his skills ahead of a future match.

“I’m going to keep practicing,” Masvidal said after the match (via Damon Martin of MMA Fighting). “I started playing maybe like three years ago at a barbecue and I loved it. It’s not something I get to do often but whenever it’s around, I play it. You couldn’t tell it by tonight.”

Masvidal, who hasn’t competed since losing to UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman in the main event of UFC 251, says he could return to action by November or December.

“Hopefully, December/November,” Masvidal said. “My opponent has a broken nose, he’s going to be out for a couple days due to me. He does have a broken nose. I think next week we’re going to find out just how long he’s out for and then we’ll start determining who will be the next fight and where.”

Gilbert Burns, who Masvidal replaced at UFC 251, is expected to get the next shot at the UFC welterweight championship.
