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
