    I think this is one of the greatest matchups in the ufc right now, but my gut is telling me Usman just wears him down against the cage and gets him down. If Usman fights like he did against Colby he is getting jacked but we all know he will use wrasslin and he is probably much stronger than jorge and will pressure the shit out of him until he gets the td. Usman by dec imo. Not really a stretch here i guess, I feel like most people will agree.

    Usman. My reason being that I don’t think he’s vulnerable on the feet. He beat Colby exclusively on the feet and was out striking woodley. At the very least, he can hold his own on the feet, and I give him a huge advantage in any grappling. Of course Masvidal has the ability to piece up anyone in the game on the feet, but I don’t find it likely

    Usman by lopsided decision I think. I don't think Masvidal would get finished, but he would get dominated and would be a 50-45 I feel. Usman is a top class wrestler and very very very physically strong.. can see him pushing Masvidal around. Masvidal is good but he has been taken down by Paul Daley lol

    Good for Jorge having a late career surge and gaining popularity, but come on. He gets smothered by Usman or Colby, loses to Wonderbread again, loses a routine UD to Leon Scott and would be 50/50 with RDA. Masvidal vs Luque or even Conor would be the most entertaining fights to make at WW, and obviously Conor would be the bigger name and payday of the 2.

    Usman 50-45.

    Fans are being swayed by recency bias. Jorge has done well recently but he's been underwhelming throughout his career.

    Would be extremely boring with mas pushed up against the fence the whole fight with Usman doing his best khabib impression with his head in a mans crotch.

    Usman 5-0, with at least 1 10-8. Then Masvidal complains in the post-fight interview about Usman trying to impregnate him.

    He beat one of the lesser strikers in the division on the feet and outstruck Woodley who has an extremely low striking output in the first place... I don't your reasoning here.

    It would work better if Usman had fought say Wonderboy.
