    Masvidal is a smart fighter. He should win either fight (by decision).

    Masvidal / Brown would be a fun stand-up brawl.

    I think he should be fighting someone above those two. Jorge seems fine fighting guys below him skill wise, and even then he just likes to play it easy.

    I think he'd pick Ellenberger apart. I have to give Masvidal his dues, he hurt Ross bad and went for the kill, I didn't expect that

    MayhemMonkey Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?

    I like either of those fights, and think Masvidal has the skills to beat either of them. He could lose to either of them also

    so Id say book either of them

    That would be amazing. I'd definitely prefer that to Cerrone vs. Story. Still don't know why they booked that one.

    The Ellenberger fight is awesome, because Jake shouldn't fight anyone elite right now otherwise he'll go back to racking Ls

    Masvidal should just stay at 155. He's too small to be relevant at 170.

    Well I understand that it makes sense from a rankings standpoint, but it just doesn't seem like the best option for Cowboy. He matches up beautifully with so many welterweights... Brown, Masvidal, Nelson, etc... I dunno, maybe his fight with Story will turn out to be awesome, just kinda seems like there are more exciting choices out there for both guys.

    He said he couldn't make 155 anymore after the IV ban. Moving to welterweight obviously wasn't his first choice. He's not as small as I expected though.
