    You don’t like Maz? That’s a personal problem and I feel for you.

    He’s a scrapper and a 155 lb guy who eats double cheeses and goes out brawling. He’s ranked high because of his outings against Wonderboy( fought a lot more than Till) and Maia. He’s earned his spot and a right to fight it out

    Lol Masvidal is overrated?


    I cant take that seriously when the majority of spergs on this forum think Lando is something special because he knocked a guy down once.

    Where ever the fuck he’s ranked it’s too high. He somehow makes MMA have all the excitement of a backyard badminton match between two old women.

    Elias is 7-2 on a 2 fight win streak in 4 years in the UFC and barely top 15.
    Jorge is 7-5 on a 2 fight losing streak in the same time span and ranked 9th.
    Elias is more deserving at this point.

    Not all of us are just bleeders. He has great technique and is very good in all positions.

    I'll grant you that. but he doesn't fight up to his own skill level and thats why he's never truly broken through to the upper echelon.

    For real he's fucking dork. Never hear shit about his boring fights but he's all over twitter commenting on everything that happens in MMA.

    Get out of here. He clearly lost to Khabilov. And he clearly let laquinta run away with the decision.

    Masvidal's nickname is the coaster for a reason.

    This is a weird op.Dont know how you can hate or call a guy like Masvidal overrated
    This guy is a clean fighter who comes to fight ,beats people he's supposed to beat and generally loses to the elite .I generally enjoy his fights.

    Lol- watch Bisping fight dolloway ,Leites and 73 year old Hendo......thats the PURE definition of " overrated "

    Used to be a fan but now i don't like him.

    People always bring up his street fights like it means something. He can KO street people but have trouble winning against top level fighters in the cage. Yeah he beat Cerrone but that really doesn't mean too much since Cerrone is almost out the door. Plus he looks and acts embarrassing... I mean...

    His ranking is fine imo. He's one of the toughest hardest fights for anyone on the roster. He's well rounded, impossible to KO, hard to submit. His wrestling is good, his boxing is excellent.

    And I'm not even a fan

    I'm a big Mas fan. He's had some boring fights as of late so it's kind of hard to defend him but I will say this...His last two fights were against guys notorious for producing boring fights. You can't put it all on him.

    I'm a big fan of Mas but can agree that some of his fights have underwhelmed. But that doesn't take away from the fact that I feel he is a very skilled and experienced fighter that has fought nothing but top guys for a while now. Might not win them all but I always feel he's a solid fight away from beating a lot of the top guys out there.

    I enjoyed his fight against Maia. Maia had to get really creative in order to get masvidal down.

    Maia called Masvidal, "the best jiu Jitsu fighter," he ever faced. I enjoyed the fight too but it wasn't most people's cup of tea but like I said that was more Maia's doing.

    If it was in any way funny I might have laughed. Jokes need a setup and a punchline. Nice try though, kid.
