  • Jorge clearly has some extraordinary physical attributes compared to the average person but listening to him speak: a) he lacks the maturity displayed by the champion caliber fighters and b) he doesn't analyze the sport the way elite fighters do. There are plenty of journeymen who can learn striking and grappling but it's clear if you want to be elite, you and your team need to have sharp analytical skills and film review skills.

  • true fighters take losses fairly well, they get back in the cage again, they don't "retire" for a year, they don't run off like that one one-trick dickhead, and when they can give post-fight interviews and interviews like jorge gives..well those are some badass dudes, they have their heads on straight, for some people to lose one fight is too much to handle, or fighting is everything to them and they're nothing without it, those people are weak

  • Masvidal is a great fighter. True class. But Usman is not a good matchup for him. Usman's wrestling threat got in his head and it's doubtful that a 3rd fight would end much differently. But who knows?

  • He loves the sport yet constantly makes homophobic comments about anyone who grapples. Less politics and water pouring on your head (wasn’t cool when Yoel did it).

    Spencer HSpencer HDag siden
    • Jorge is not homophobic. He's close with his teammate Amanda Nunes and frequently gives her props and respect. He's simply frustrated with fighters who rely too much on their grappling and don't want to box. It's valid criticism. He thought this of Usman at one point, but clearly not anymore.

  • Averagev Masvidal got exposed but still talks like he is one of the best WW's around. In reality, I don't know who his next opponent will be but it won't be one of the legitimate top 5 guys. My guess is it'll be somebody outside the top 10, that's why he got a bit more excited when Nick Diaz was mentioned, he knows his limitations and his brand and image probably couldn't take the inevitable L that would accompany a bout against a Colby or Leon.

  • The Confidence takes a big initial Hit (after a loss) but it comes back quickly. It was a misnomer, an unlikely result - much like Jorge and Ben. The UFC Fans know that the Top Dudes r gonna knock each other off - they're all THAT good. A loss in the UFC isn't necessarily as big a thing. As, say, a loss in the Heavyweight Division. Jorge got caught - for the first time 50 fights. What should be' stressed? = "For the first time in 50 fights." That's astonishing. People are overlooking that. 49 fights in MIXED MARTIAL ARTS and ye never been KO'd -- that's Floyd Mayweather territory.

  • what Jorge's accomplished goes way-over-and-above...the Octagon and UFC. It's why Jorge and The Diaz Brothers are on their own plateau. Jorge changed his own thinking/changed his own ceiling - that's Tony Robbin's stuff. Except Jorge did it by Jorge's self. Much respect @ both Ariel and Jorge.

  • I don’t get the check hook. Doesn’t the check hook only work if they are both orthodox or both southpaw? Usman was southpaw and masvidal was orthodox so when Usman threw the front jab masvidal threw a left hook leaving the left side of his face completely open to usmans straight left. Masvidal, how does the check hook work if you are fighting a southpaw, I don’t get why you would check his straight with a left hook at all.

Its sad to see it too because I do beleive it was his last shot to be champ :(. i really wanted to see this old cat get the belt, hes been doing this for so long and working so hard. If there is a god, he could get another shot at belt, but i believe its about a 1/100 chance. Props for taking loss like a man, and giving credits where credit is due, ill always be fan of jorge.
