    I don’t think any fighter in the world can beat Jorge at 165-170 right now.

    did you misread again? That's not what I said.

    Going into the fight the general reading of things was if it ended in the distance it would be Masvidal getting his hand raised - If it went the distance it would likely.be an Askren decision. What exactly are you arguing/disagreeing about?

    I'm not saying Askren would have won if he didn't get flying kneed early. I'm saying that if the fight lasted the distance it would be him and not Masvidal getting his hand raised. More than likely anyways

    Yeah i definitely said there was a chance but you are making out it was almost a certainty but as I said nobody has been able to completely dominate him including fighters with more tools then Askren

    Risky is still applicable IMO even given the valid points you make. That was close to a flying double knee, looked like he was going to takeoff LOL, it just reminded me of some of those early UFC's charging across the ring.

    Appears what he should do is work a ****load on his Muay Thai and don't bend over like a 90 year old man but from reading it appears that he doesn't like to do that work in camp.

    I may have misread an occasional post when replying but i'm usually able to admit it if i'm at fault.
    It's funny you'd accuse me of it tho considering i had bought it up to you recently when it comes to replying me, since you don't like me which is fine as there's plenty of others who feel the same and don't respect anything i post.

    Never i have seen such a highly touted fighter being so unimpressive..
    Askren is either well past his prime or was never elite .

    Masvidal is at the top of his game now. Focused and healthy.

    Wonderboy schooled him less than 2 years ago. Usman would beat him decisively. Colby likely dominates him.

    Jorge is on a nice streak, but your statement is hyperbole. No one can possible believe Jorge can beat everyone at 170. That's ridiculous.

    Yes that was one of the most brutal finishes ever imo up there with Gary Goodridges famous elbows finish. Well done to Masvidal. He won't beat the Usman-Colby winner though. I will bump this comment when they beat him.

    he will beat either usman or colby handily
    usmans size will hurt him and his non existant striking ability. 2-3 body kicks and usman will be done. Colby is way to wild and aggressive with face first defense. We will def bump this and then youll admit your statement was ridiculous.

    I bet you would pick Masvidal to beat a prime GSP wouldn't you ?
