UFC star Jorge Masvidal isn’t a fan of Colin Kaepernick.
Masvidal, who is the son of a Cuban refugee, has been very vocally supporting the protests and uprisings on the island against the dictatorship. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

According to BroBible, Masvidal posted a photo on his Instagram story of Kaepernick in a Fidel Castro shirt, and wrote, “Cowards like this fool should be sent to live in Cuba see what they say after a day there.”
You can see a screenshot of his post below.
For those of you who might not remember, Kaepernick wore a shirt seemingly supporting the Castro regime back in 2016 and praised the dictator.

Meanwhile, Masvidal, who is actually taking a stand against oppression, is out here speaking the truth and standing up for people who need help.
There’s no comparison between Kaepernick. One is a star and the other is an idiot who makes a fool out of himself time and time again.

Props to Masvidal for dunking on Kaepernick and supporting people in Cuba seeking freedom. It’s a damn shame more athletes don’t have his courage.
UFC star Jorge Masvidal shared a powerful video about the horrors of communism and the Cuban dictatorship.
Unlike cowards LeBron James Colin Kaepernick, @GameBredFighter has taken a stance against actual oppression.
More athletes should follow his lead. pic.twitter.com/wQg7tqTD8w
