Who is Jorge Masvidal’s wife, Iman Kawa?
The ex-wife of Masvidal, Kawa, was born on the 19th of June, 1988. She grew up in Miami alongside her five siblings.
Iman Kawa is the sister of MMA managers Malki and Ibraham Kawa.
After graduating from high school, Kawa attended the Culinary Institute of America, where she got her graduate degree.
The former Jorge Masvidal’s wife is a professional chef, a procurement specialist, and runs a YouTube channel named Better than your mother’s, where she posts videos of cooking tutorials and her lifestyle.
Jorge has also been a part of her videos many times; there’s even a separate video featuring and welcoming Jorge into the channel.
Jorge Masvidal’s now ex-wife Iman Kawa shared the relationship of husband and wife with Masvidal for almost a decade before splitting up.
The couple got divorced in early 2019, but reports state that they had split up in 2018.
Jorge Masvidal’s Wife | Net worth
Iman Kawa’s net worth is estimated to be around $200k, mainly generated from her YouTube channel and brand Better Than Your Mother’s.
On the other hand, Jorge Masdival’s estimated net worth is $6 million, which he earned from his pro-fighting career in the UFC.
Personal Life: Marriage, Children, and Divorce
Iman Kawa and Jorge Masvidal got married sometime in the late 2000s.
The couple was also blessed with three beautiful children. But they decided not to reveal any information about their children.
Lucky for you, as we do know their age, though.
The eldest child (daughter) of the three is about 18 years old, followed by the middle child, the second daughter, is 12 years old.
Similarly, the youngest child, the only son, is about 5 years old.
Fast forward to 2019, the couple got divorced but maintained a healthy relationship as friends after. They still follow each other on Instagram.
Iman later claimed that the reason for their divorce was the unguaranteed faithful nature of Jorge.
The former Jorge Masvidal’s wife also claimed that the MMA fighter had dated many models in the past behind her back.
There is no clue as to who got the custody of the three children.
Our expertise suggests that Iman won the custody battle if there was any Jorge, a pro fighter, could not possibly have time to look after three children.
The controversy surrounding Jorge and Jorge Masvidal’s wife
In April of 2021, Colby Covington, a Welterweight division fighter, said that Masvidal and a woman named Maritza Collado are husband and wife during a Mac Life interview.
The former best friend of Madvidal said that Maritza is the real wife of Jorge, not Iman Kawa. He posted a photo of him with Maritza on both his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
He also boldly claimed that Jorge’s children were Maritza’s and not his ex-wife, Iman Kawa’s.
Covington said, and we quote,
“The mother of his children and his wife, who is still on the marriage certificate today, have not been divorced yet, is Maritza Collado… Maritza Masvidal.”
Moreover, he also stated that Jorge had an extramarital affair, lied to her children about their mother, and cheated on Maritza.
Covington did not hold back whatsoever; he straight-up wanted to destroy Masvidal’s professional career.
Covington said everything he knew, every detail that would put Jorge to being ashamed.
“He’s a shitty person. He cheated on his wife; he cheated on his children,” said Colby Covington.
Following that, he also said, “He lies to his children. He’s just not a good person. So I want to expose him in front of everybody.”
He reported these claims to sports producer and reporter Helen Yee.
Masvidal’s fan jumped on to cover for him, saying that Covington just wanted media coverage and that this was a publicity stunt.
Isn’t it ironic how the person who went off against Colin Kaepernick for wearing a Fidel Castro t-shirt is now blamed for cheating on his wife and kids?
What is Jorge Masvidal’s wife doing now?
Jorge Masvidal’s wife is currently single; there are no indications that she has another man in her life.
She is raising her three children alongside painting her professional career. She is an excellent example of resilience.
As far as we can tell, Kawa is not looking for a relationship right now; she is investing all her energy and effort into growing her business and raising her children.
