The Left’s woke ideology has taken over professional sports in America.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one sport that has remained free of wokeness.
And now the cancel culture crowd is fuming over what Jorge Masvidal admitted on Fox News about Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.
America’s professional sports leagues fully embraced the Left’s woke ideology over the past few years.
Major League Baseball moved its 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta after Republicans passed a bill that simply increased election security measures at the ballot box.
And numerous teams in the NBA, NHL, NFL and other leagues supported the Black Lives Matter movement and are pushing the Left’s transgender and homosexual lifestyle on fans.
But the one place where wokeness cannot be found is the UFC.
UFC President Dana White is a long-time friend and supporter of Donald Trump and recently told Fox News that he will never do anything “woke” as long as he is in charge.
And several of the UFC’s greatest champions agree with White.
Former UFC champion Jorge Masvidal is well-known for expressing his conservative values and political views.
During a recent interview with Fox News Channel’s Brian Kilmeade, Masvidal did not mince words when sharing his feelings about Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.
“First, let me say thank God for everything that I have,” Masvidal told Kilmeade. “Thank God that I’m in the greatest country in the world, the United States, in the best state in the country, Florida,” he continued, before adding that “and I’m biased, the best city in the world, Miami.”
After his last fight before retirement on April 8, Masvidal told Joe Rogan that Trump was “the greatest President ever” during an interview in the ring.
But even though Masvidal supports Trump, he does not oppose DeSantis like the former President does.
Instead, Masvidal also thinks DeSantis is “an amazing Governor.”
“Thank God the hate is not that bad in Florida because we have an amazing Governor DeSantis that has fought against this like a fighter would,” he said. “You know, and it’s amazing that we have all this freedom and liberty in Florida, in Miami, and we could go out there and make money and be involved in businesses, you know, So I just thank God.”
Masvidal understands very well the devastating impact of socialist policies.
His father escaped Communism in Cuba on a homemade raft.
“As I got older, you know, like close to my teens, like 11, 12 years old, I really understood why my dad did this,” Masvidal explained. “And it was to escape the tyranny that is communism over there in Cuba, in places like Venezuela, where we see this happening in Brazil.”
