    From a business standpoint this is a bad matchup because I think Usman annihilates Masvidal, prob. a 1st round KO/sub, thus killing off the marketing sensation that is Jorge Masvidal right now. This is exactly why a Conor/Masvidal fight for the BMF title makes so much more sense. The marketing buildup and pressers would be absolutely ridiculous.

    Usman should just hang out, see what happens with Edwards/Woodley and Conor/Masvidal. Meanwhile, we've still got Khabib/Ferguson. Not to mention, guys like Diaz, Thompson, Gaethje all hanging out. So many moving parts. The LW/WW division is pretty exiting right now. So many potential good matchups.

    Usman couldn't obliterate past prime RDA. What makes you think he's going to obliterate Masvidal?

    Will he win? Likely. Will it be a lot of stalling and TD attempts for Usman? Probably.

    Nope, right now Masvidal has supreme confidence. Mas will start fast and end it early.

    1st round KO/sub?

    <DontBelieve1>

    Usman has a very good chance of winning but 1st round KO/sub shouldn't be your first choice.

    Conor and Masvidal is not happening because if Conor loses, Conor is not doing a fight with Khabib(much bigger fight than with Masvidal). Same logic applies with the Mas/Diaz rematch. Seems that Masvidal is trapped in a corner and the only way out is to fight Usman.

    RDA is a much better fighter than Journeyman Jorge

    And he was in his prime in that fight

    That never happened. You just made that up. Par for the course for the troll that you are though.

    Nah fam. Just because he stopped Colby let’s not forget he’s by and large a decision machine. He’d be rightfully favourite I’d imagine but obliterate Jorge in R1? If anyone is getting stopped in the first it’s going to be Usman.

    Except Conor wants no part of Masvidal and Dana doesn’t want Masvidal anywhere near Conor, so they’ll probably look for another favorable matchup for him like a Cerrone.

    Based on WW results, that's an incorrect statement. Masvidal factually has better wins.

    LMFAO at 1st round KO/sub for Usman.

    Not only does Usman rarely finish anyone, but Jorge never gets finished. He's literally never been finished for as long as he's been in the UFC. He has only been finished 2x in 48 fights, and both were over a decade ago.

    These are just statistics, look up their finishing rates. And this call you made just made you lose credibility right away.

    Usman has only one path to victory, and that is to nullify the fight from happening.

    Take Jorge down once per round and keep him there while doing minimal damage.

    That's his only path to victory.

    Since when does Usman finish guys in the first round? He'll just get a 50-45 or 49-46 unanimous decision win.

    And RDA has worse losses.

    I love Rafa but he just got outworked by Michael Chiesa. Masvidal strangled Chiesa like a blind kitten.
