I don’t get the hype. Masvidal’s urine won’t cure Cancer. I promise.
I wish you guys would do some friggin actually research once in a while. He has KO’d 13 of his 46 opponents ; 28%. Everything, all this nonsensical hype is about his last 2 KOs. What big fight has Cerrone not choked in? Jake Ellenberger was spoiled milk going back to his KO loss against Lawler in 2014. He has split decision losses to Al Iaquinta, Bendo and Larkin. He is a 155er. Maia fought for the belt at 185, is not a small man and has submitted men as big as Gonzaga. Maia is an erudite scholar, while Masvidal is clicking away somewhere in Africa. This metaphor refers to both their fighting ability and their class level.
Bottom line: no matter the outcome, Maia is a way better fighter.
Just like Jacare is a way better fighter than Whittaker. What? After 2 takedown attempts and a failed back take, abort mission and strategy. Strategy, like Royce has always said, is paramount. That fight was not a fluke. However,it was simply a part of an actual real conspiracy (not an Alex Jones one). UFC hates BJJ centric fighters; keep them away from the title, and given them enough fights until they have a bad night. Could the same happen to Maia? Absolutely. He could get clipped and KO’d. He could get systematically get picked apart and finished. Or he get boxed up in a decision. However, Maia 3.0 is all about adhering to the BJJ doctrine. As long as he stays the path, he is going to fuck that lowgrade up.
The Masvidal bandwagon loves Scarface references.
