I understand wanting to give your guy a little push, and I do thinks that's part of the corner's job sometimes. But at a certain point it becomes clear that the fighter is not in the right mindset to fight anymore, and that can only lead to bad things. This was waaay was over the line.
And he's pretty good looking too, right?I think about guys like Poirier a lot. He is pretty much as good as you can get at fighting without being at the legend status. If he had a little bit more pop or a little bit better takedown defense he could get and keep a belt.
I love watching that guy fight. Hooker is tough too.
Whoa. Masvidal is replacing Burns to face Usman. Usman about a -270 favorite. Seems like Usman should have a huge edge on the ground. I’d love to see Jorge make this fight interesting :somehow.Durinho our with covid
Was too soon for him to be fighting again, imo
Street Jesus vs guys with strong grappling credentials:Whoa. Masvidal is replacing Burns to face Usman. Usman about a -270 favorite. Seems like Usman should have a huge edge on the ground. I’d love to see Jorge make this fight interesting :somehow.
I was really impressed with Masvidal’s savvy against Diaz. Plus, Usman is a bit of a wildcard isn’t he? Like the kind of guy Masvidal could goad into trading rather than wrestling.I'm not sure if his record vs those grapplers are anything to go by. None of them have the striking that Usman does (though he's behind Masvidal in that facet of the game) to set up his takedowns. What Bayko said is true, Usman has a huge advantage on the ground. That being said, I love the fight from an entertainment standpoint and of course Masvidal could win.
It also brings the embedded series up a few notches this week.
Wait. There are two sizes? I had no idea.251 is the first card I'm excited for since, idk a Conor fight or Jones-DC 2. Masvidal is so much fun and hopefully he got a pay bump to make it happen. I don't think his record vs grapplers means much. He's been a different guy since that reality show. I'm not sure when it was filmed but I believe he's 3-0 since and the only grappler was Askren. I imagine fight island will have the big octagon but if it's the small one that's an advantage for Usman
I stumbled across an old fight between Masvidal and Lauzon when they were both coming up. Joe is a buddy, and he was heavily favored in that fight. Masvidal pounded him when they were on the ground.Street Jesus vs guys with strong grappling credentials:
Askren - record breaking destruction
Maia - split decision loss that I thought Jorge won
Ellenberger - TKO for Gamebred
Bendo - Split decision loss
Chiesa - Sub for Jorge
Khabilov - Decision loss for Masvidal
Gil Melindez - Decision loss for Masvidal
Yeah, good performance but she wasn’t exactly fasting great competition. I always want Paige VZ to be good because she’s just about the only female fighters who’s truly super hot without grading her on a fighter curve. I’m sure Dana wishes as well.I'm in love with Ribas
Andrade looks for sure like she been hitting some bombas at some point.Yeah. Steroids aren’t fair in female fighting.
Also, me and my friends were just talking about sketchy judging before they fight. And of course it was a split decision. Don’t understand that. First two rounds were pretty clear.
Huge variation but it’s a real belt. Blue belt is the belt everyone gets after a year or two.How good is a purple belt in jiu jitsu?
Good to know. Quarantine bae’s doorman got froggy and told me he has a purple belt. It was weird.Huge variation but it’s a real belt. Blue belt is the belt everyone gets after a year or two.
Purple belts that win big tournaments are really good.
good wrestlers with a purple belt are a problem.
