    I feel the same but as the old adage goes, every round starts standing and Jorge has a clear advantage standing. Not to mention solid tdd and bjj.

    60:40 usman, i think jorge is a live dog will put some chedda on him.
    Usmans ability to avoid the fight is pretty good so i see allot cage control and long drawn out takedown attempts that will technically make him the agressor.

    i dont think usman will do any thing significant on the ground there will be allot of scrambles which will give jorge a chance to do damage.

    watch the rda fight usmans top control is being extremely overrated, shouldn’t be in the same conversation as maia

    I honestly think Mas is one of the only that's to usman having a long title reign, that being said he faces the same challenges as everyone else, I do however think usman will underestimate Jorge from a tdd, defensive wrestling, scrambling standpoint and it will be one of those fights that comes down to a few key moments. If they go usmans way he can dominate, if they go Jorges he can catch and finish him

    Prime GSP is the only WW who could beat Usman. Even then, it'd be an uneventful 50-45 or 49-46. Jab, jab, circle out, jab, defend TD, circle out, jab.

    People might think im crazy but i think masvidal has a pretty good chance, he's been training with good wrestlers and his tdd defence improved a lot, on the feet he's far better

    It's quite apparent that Dana WANTS Masvidal to win, as per his comment in a recent interview :
    "And then if he wins, maybe we'll do his first title defense in Miami."

    I think that's an interesting comment, and clearly shows Dana is thinking ahead on this.
    I know Usman is a very strong and big WW guy, amazing wrestling, top control, all that stuff. But Jorge has seen every type of fighter before and I don't think it'll be anything new to him.
    -- Not saying Masvidal is *going* to win but I think he'll have a solid gameplan bearing in mind the type of fighter Usman is, and I think he'll be prepared.
    Even if Masvidal gets taken down and controlled for ALL of rd 1 and ALL of Rd2, there's 5 rounds to this fight and each round starts standing up and I think he'll do something dramatic fairly early on.

    Well they did gave a lay up to Conor not sure if they would want a real fight with Mas on their hands what if Conor losses that one it would be really ugly and most likely a KO.

    So yea Dana wants Mas vs Usman and he hopes Mas wins. All about maximizing that $ potential on all fronts.
