Masvidal really should get the next title shot, but instead he has to run that back. I really don’t need to see it again. Nate was getting pieced up and had no answer. 

im thinking money.  with how good this card was -- possibly the highest UFC PPV for 2019 ?? -- the rematch might do the same.  in which case, same cash in the bank be it imaginary belt or real belt

Nate did get saved though. Masvidal was fucking him up. I kinda feel bad for him. This was gonna propel him to bigger things. Now he kinda has to run it back

Yes and no.  Nate was in trouble but he could take advantage of a slip up or Masvidal tiring.

I agree, but if that were a 3 round fight it was probably 30-26. There had to be a 10 8 round sprinkled in there.

But it wasn't ....and we all no that's the point.   Masvidal was scary dominant but you give a cardio guy a chance in late rounds you never know.

That’s fair. I like both guys. Two of my favorite fighters to watch. I want to see Masvidal get a title shot, and I don’t want to see Nate just get fucked up like that lol. That’s all.

Can we somehow get rid of weight cutting? It’s just a subversive tactic to cut water weight or worse to leverage an advantage.

On top of that it compromises the quality of performances.

Many fans have been clamoring for same day weigh-ins for years.  That would get rid of most of it.

I thought that is how it used to be, but yeah I guess if it was right before the fight.

But don’t amateur wrestlers weigh in hours before the fight?

Maybe not same day, but a controlled weight cut where everyone has to be at a certain % multiple times leading up to the event. Then the day of fight it's only allowed a certain %?

In regards to Nate Diaz unfortunately a good stoppage.

I think something like the percentage cut is already in place.

Yeah there's an amount for after that you can balloon back up to. I'm talking about before, they should make it a controlled % of weights for 1 month cutting so you don't have people that don't drink water before a fight and dehydrate their brain. Maybe like you can only weigh 10% or so over the weight any time a month before the fight. Just weigh the guys when you do the piss tests

Looks like I may have to suck it up and take the L, pussy. I'm a Diaz fanboy, but still really like Jorge (how can you not), but going in I thought the most likely scenario was Jorge lands big and ends it early, or he doesn't and Nate drags him into deep waters and sees if he can survive hell. Unfortunately Nate's face only allowed for half of that.

It's all just sour grapes now, but even going into the 4th round, just that visual of Nate jogging on his feet while Jorge's face has changed from his 1st-round smirk to a blank stare like "wtf do I gotta hit this guy with" is tough to swallow. The 3rd round is when some ground game got involved, a bit of wrestling, a leg lock attempt, some clean 1-2s from Nate, etc. The fight was getting competitive.

If you look at the numbers, Nate's volume went up in round 3, along with punches landed.  He is no doubt a high-volume, long-distance fighter.

But then again, there was zero signs that Jorge was getting tired, unlike e.g. the matches against Conor where you saw the gap in cardio. 

So there's a non-zero chance Nate turns it up in the 4th and 5th and catches Jorge off guard.  But the chances are low, and it was definitely a 30-26 when the fight was stopped.

With the horns looking so bad early I turned it over to the Hardy v Volkov fight. Volkov took him apart like I expected but have to say Hardy isn't the can people thought he'd be. He's got a tough chin and isn't top 10 material but he belongs.

Damn, I missed this. It doesn’t really surprise me though. If you’re a good enough athlete to be a top tier defensive lineman in the NFL, it goes without saying that you’re going to be one of the best raw athletes in MMA. I could see him being top 10 caliber in a few years.

I’m not saying Nick Diaz is crazy, but his interview with Ariel Helwani takes bananas to comprehend.

“Don’t talk about baptizing my brother. Like, do your thing, make that money, but you cross a line when you talk about baptizing my brother. That’s my baby brother”

 

lol yeah that was a ridiculous interview.

Also, Israel Adesanya on Joe Rogan’s podcast today. I haven’t listened, but he’s usually a good interview. He was the last time he was on rogans podcast

That is Ross Pearson after a very brief retirement on the wrong end. One of the sites called it a rolling thunder kick.

I remember watching Ross Pearson on TUF (if that’s the same guy I’m thinking of). When Dan Henderson and Bisping were the coaches leading up to UFC 100. That season of TUF was my first taste of MMA.
