    He’s got like 50 pro fights and is getting a second crack at Usman. He’s seen so many different looks and scenarios I really think he might have something in his bag for Kamaru.

    However, Usman knows LnP is an option so it’ll really come down to Mas being able to do some damage before the first TD. Just saying, no one shoul count out Mas, he’s fought the best of the best.

    LOL.

    My experience watching porn MIGHT help me pick up chicks and smash like Rocco Siffredi.

    Had basically the same amount of experience in the last fight but will definitely have enough now to be able to win.

    Hope you’re right though lol.

    I thought the context of fighting on 6 days not being enough time to prepare was a given tbh.

    Even if you did have a point to make, this analogy is terrible.

    Mas has never beaten an elite fighter. He's not going to beat Usman outside of something really flukey.

    His TDD defense wasn't the issue from their first fight. He defended the takedowns even on short notice, the problem was being pressed on the cage with wall n stall and foot stomps.

    As of late, yes. But he’s got a ton of decisions on his record.

    I can't agree with you on this one. If anything, having 50 pro fights and being 36 years old will work against him here. That's a lot of mileage, going up against an elite dominant champ like Usman in his prime.

    Usman only had 6 days to gameplan for Masvidal last time too. He was preparing for a grappler in Burns. Whereas Masvidal was preparing for Usman for months, everyone knew that was his next fight. I fully expect Marty to win even more dominantly this time around.

    Dude if Masvidal was some amateur who had experience in watching fights and made that statement, then it would be equal to yours.

    Chael Sonnen picking Usman might win Masvidal the fight

    Usman would've LNP'd in the first fight if he could've but Mas was able to get up pretty easily. Wall n stall is another issue however

    I tend to agree. I think Masvidal is underrated and his record doesn't reflect how good he is. 50 pro fights is a lot of experience, and off the top I can't recall many if any fights where he took a significant amount of damage or was severely outclassed. He's always in it.

    This will be Kamaru's 20th fight and 14th in the UFC. I get that Jorge having 30+ more fights than Usman is impressive, but its not like Kamaru is some rookie newcomer. Experience won't play a factor here simply beacaue Usman has enough experience himself.
