Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred FC continues to make waves in the world of combat sports. Recent reports reveal that Brazilian jiu-jitsu heavyweight sensation Nick Rodriguez received a notable contract offer from Masvidal to join Gamebred FC.

In a recent appearance on the JAXXON Podcast, hosted by former UFC champion Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, Rodriguez shared details about the intriguing offer from Masvidal. Although the deal didn’t materialize, Rodriguez expressed openness to future possibilities, emphasizing the need for dedicated training in striking before considering a move into the cage.

While Rodriguez didn’t make an appearance under the Gamebred FC banner, the promotion has successfully attracted established MMA stars and former champions. Fighters like Junior Dos Santos and Fabricio Werdum have signed with Gamebred FC, contributing to the promotion’s growing reputation.

In the most recent Gamebred FC 6 event, hosted by Masvidal, spectators witnessed a thrilling showcase of talent. The inaugural heavyweight championship bout, featuring former UFC fighters Roy Nelson and Alan Belcher, went the distance, with Belcher securing a split-decision victory to claim the heavyweight title.

The co-main event saw former UFC fighters Randy Costa and Jason Knight engage in a fierce battle, with ‘The Zohan’ securing a TKO victory in the first round. Additional highlights from the main card included Chase Sherman’s first-round victory over Carl Seumanutafa and Brandon Davis’ unanimous decision win against Joe Penafiel.

Curtis Millender secured a split-decision victory over Joel Bauman, while Junior Maranhao claimed victory via submission in Round 3 against Joshua Weems. The main card also featured impressive performances, including Alex Nicholson’s KO/TKO win over Prince McLean, Francisco Trinaldo’s victory via injury against Sasha Palatnikov, and Hector Lombard’s KO/TKO win over Chris Sarro.

As Gamebred FC continues to carve its niche in the combat sports landscape, the potential addition of talents like Nicky Rodriguez adds to the excitement surrounding the promotion.
