UFC fighter Jorge Masvidal shares his support for the Cuban protesters and warns against the communist dictatorship as he shares what his dad went through before he came to America spoke with Fox News.
In a Twitter post, Masvidal decided to voice his thoughts on Cuba and its people. He described the country as a “killing machine.”
“My father escaped Cuba when he was 14 years old,” Masvidal said. “And I’ve only heard the horror stories since I could process thoughts of how s— this communist regime, killing machine is. So I just want to shed some light on Cuba — big SOS signal for them.
Masvidal, who has a career 35-15 record, most recently fought UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, but he suffered defeat after he was knocked out in the second round.
Masvidal is calling for the world to rally behind Cuba. He believes it’s everyone’s job to put the word out there about “these corrupt governments.”
“Let’s go, spread the messages online, we gotta protest, we gotta get together, get attention,” Masvidal concluded. “Maybe the local media channels in America won’t cover this, or in other parts of the world. But I think it’s up to us to put the word out there.”
There have been videos floating online from Cubans who have been making disturbing statements on what is going on in their homeland.
