    I can see a slight argument for giving Masvidal a 29-28 in that fight, but I think most would score that for Khabilov. 30-27 on two of three scorecards was a bit strange though.

    So he got rewarded with an even bigger fight after an embarassing loss to Demian Maia, and lost that one too.
    That just goes to show that UFC somehow has a hard-on for this guy yet he fails to deliver. Who the fuck gets an even higher-ranked opponent after a loss?

    I'm not calling them exciting super-skilled KO Artists, that's the difference. Also those guys actually have to win fights to get their spot in the rankings.

    This just shows how dumb you are. How was the loss to Maia embarassing? It was a close split decision were Masvidal displayed elite bjj defence, something even Maia said.

    Stay being bitter while he's making money.

    I agree he definitely is not the most exciting fighter, but to say his skill level is not top ranked considering he's beaten almost all competition put in front of him is absurd.

    Of all the fighters to criticize, he's one of the few that doesn't use WWE antics, get boob jobs, B level movie careers on the side, or half nude women on his twitter to try to fame his way into title shots like other characters on the roster.

    I hate that method of scoring. One KD or 30 seconds of success wins you a fight in which you were mostly outclassed. Scoring should reward sustained dominance, not this round-stealing BS.

    He was a better LW than a WW, where he did have many fights he should've won, but messed around and lost a split. I agree he's over ranked at WW, undersized and the results aren't there...even the performances, which were a point for him at LW. Still very skilled, but doesn't belong in the WW contender discussion.

    Good point. Actually how long can a contender go without fighting before being removed from the rankings?

    Most over-ranked is currently Josh Emmett at #6 FW. At least Masvidal was on weight when he beat Cowboy.

    To be fair, I think there is zero chance Ponzinibbio or Edwards are on a win streak if they fought Masvidal's last 6 opponents much less winning more than 3 of those fights. Seems to me like the rankings make general sense.

    Masvidal was born and raised in Miami, Florida, to a Cuban father and Peruvian mother.

    No wonder he was fighting on the streets.
