Longtime UFC, Bellator and Strikeforce fighter Jorge Masvidal stepped out of the octagon and into a much safer realm, the cornhole boards, in the American Cornhole League (ACL) Grudge Match against ACL pro Cody Henderson on Wednesday in Rock Hill, S.C. Masvidal’s effort against the champ was commemorated in the first Topps Now ACL card, available through Thursday, August 13, at 2 p.m. ET at the Topps Now ACL page.

Masvidal and Henderson first met for an impromptu game on the cornhole boards in South Beach back in January 2020. Under the bright lights at the ACL World Championships in Rock Hill, SC they met again for a five round battle on ESPN2, The Grudge Match. After spotting Masvidal 15 points, Henderson ended up with a third round KO, 21-15.

Topps produced a Henderson card as well.
