    And he lost by decision. They are 4 weight classes apart. I can't believe Jorge lost to him despite being much larger.

    Are there any other fights like this where a top fighter lost to a much smaller guy earlier in their career?

    Masvidal has been a weight class hopper his whole life. He's lost to gate keepers in all divisions, but he's more relevant than ever now at his heaviest weight class.

    Some people can't grasp that fighters change with time, some get worse, the majority get better, and Masvidal today is a completely different beast.

    Masvidal of old gets subbed by maia in first round.

    I'm not a fan of the dude but he's improved heaps, a lot of his losses were to him not pulling the trigger also.

    Rich via rear naked choke, same as Cormier twice...both hailing from my home state <seedat>It's still do insane to me that 5 of his 6 losses are by rnc<36>

    And there are fools that think if he comes back to fight Jones, he won't lose in the same way.
    Nope, I refuse to be fooled twice. You aint getting me again Rumble.

    I've always thought Rumble would get outclassed. That's coming from a non Jones fan, and a Rumble fan.

    At one point in my gullible time as a mma fan I thought Rumble would stand a chance against Jones.
    This of course was before the DC AJ2 fight.

    I agree, Rumble hits like a truck but Jones had eaten some nasty shots before

    I can't believe it wasn't split decision. Jorge "split decision machine" masvidal. 26 decisions out of 44 matches, half of which were losses. And gsp gets shit on for this? Sorry for the unrelated rant.
