Born to Fight

How a Street Fighter Living on the Edge Became "Gamebred" and Found Success

About The Book

In this inspiring rags-to-riches memoir, UFC star Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal reveals how he went from a poor son of immigrants on the streets of Florida to one of the most successful athletes in the world, and how you can use the same principles to achieve success in your life.

When an older bully pushed the smaller Jorge Masvidal to the ground in second grade and tried to steal his bike, something snapped inside him. A “skinny kid with a big head,” Jorge grew up in a tough Miami neighborhood, raised by a single mom while his Cuban refugee father was in and out of jail. Jorge reacted in the only way he knew how: a flurry of punches and kicks fueled by red-hot rage that sent the bully to the ground.

Over the years, Jorge “Gamebred” Masvidal channeled rage into discipline and used his fists to go from feared street scrapper to one of the world’s greatest professional fighters. But his influence isn’t limited to the cage. Jorge channels his discipline and work ethic in every endeavor, getting involved in politics, social causes, and business. Now, in Born to Fight, Jorge brings his inspiring story to life and proves that every person has the capacity to reach their full potential and achieve the American Dream.
