Jorge Masvidal’s Recuerdo Mezcal spirits brand appears to be on the rise. Gamebred recently shared a video of him boarding a private jet branded with the spirit. The UFC superstar toasted the mezcal with his team on the way to Mexico. Masvidal wrote in the caption:
“The only thing better than the moment is the memory.” translated via google

The liqueur’s name, Recuerdo, means memory or souvenir in Spanish. In response to Masvidal’s video, UFC bantamweight champion Pedro Munhoz called him “Perro callejero,” which is a Spanish pop term meaning “street dog.”
Jorge Masvidal launched his spirits brand in Florida, California and Texas in February 2020 and launched it in the United States after nearly a decade of availability in Mexico. While both mezcal and tequila are made from the agave plant, there is a major difference in the manufacturing process.
Tequila is made by steaming the plant in industrial furnaces before distilling it two or three times in copper stills. Meanwhile, mezcal is cooked in earthen pits lined with lava rocks and filled with wood and charcoal before being distilled in clay pots.
Recuerdo Mezcal comes in two varieties, the Joven and the Abocado con Gusano. The Joven has a crisp, green agave flavor compared to the Gusano, which has a silky texture due to the inclusion of agave worms in the bottling process.
Jorge Masvidal was ordered to stay away from Colby Covington
Jorge Masvidal is currently in a three-way battle that includes two failed title bids against pound-for-pound king Kamaru Usman. Most recently, Colby Covington took ‘Gamebred’ into wrestling school for 25 minutes during their highly anticipated grudge match at UFC 272.
The grudge match failed to settle, however, as ‘Gamebred’ reportedly punched Colby Covington outside a Miami steakhouse shortly thereafter. ‘Chaos’ filed a lawsuit and Masvidal was charged with one charge of aggravated assault with a mask and one charge of criminal mischief. Updated charges also claimed Covington suffered brain damage from the alleged attack.
While Masvidal has pleaded not guilty to both counts, the Miami native has been issued a stay-away order. “Gamebred” must remain 25 feet from Covington and 500 feet from Covington’s residence.
