The split is surprising as Masvidal has been with FRM for over ten years, but as he nears the end of his competitive career, he needed a change.

FRM also split with long-time client Jon Jones last year.

After an 11 year journey as @JonnyBones management team, First Round Management and Bones have amicably decided to part ways. We are proud of him and the work we’ve done. We wish him the best going forward.

FRM has been expanding heavily into NFL clientele over the last few years; however, they still have several UFC fighters, including fan favorite Derrick Lewis, top featherweight Bryce Mitchell, and top 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 in a legal case with him; however, the trial has been postponed until late Feb. 2023.
