Jorge Masvidal has parted ways with his long-time management.

MMAmania.com has learned that two-time UFC Welterweight title challenger Masvidal is no longer represented by First Round Management (FRM). However, per sources, the split was amicable, and the pair are on good terms. Masvidal will be negotiating his own deals and fights moving forward.

The split is surprising because Masvidal has been with FRM for more than 10 years, but as he nears the end of his competitive career, he needed a change. Remember, too, that FRM also split with long-time client Jon Jones last year.

FRM has been expanding heavily into NFL clientele over the last few years; however, it still has several UFC fighters on its client roster, including fan-favorite, Derrick Lewis, top-ranked Featherweight, Bryce Mitchell, and blue-chip prospect Bo Nickal, among others.

Masvidal has been out of action since his UFC 272 loss to friend-turned enemy, Colby Covington, and is currently entangled in a legal case with him; however, the trial has been postponed until late Feb. 2023.
