Masvidal getting another TS after getting manhandled for 5 rounds is crazy

    Gets a Title Shot
    Gets dominated for 5 rounds
    Gets a Title Shot again right away

    what

    I don't care if Usman is the one calling for it, if the bald goof had any integrity he wouldn't be allowing this, it sets a terrible precedent when Champions cherry pick opponents they handily defeated before without working their way back up.



    inb4 "But Masvidal didn't train for it last time"
    He might have not had a full camp, but he was training for it way before these "6 days", even Dana said in the post fight conference that Masvidal flew in wrestlers and was training all this time, he said there won't be an immediate rematch because Mas was fully prepared and yet still lost


    TL;DR: Colby is the one who should be fighting for the title

    The bald goof has no integrity and never did.

    Mas is one of their biggest draws and they need to run this fight back before they risk Mas losing to someone else.

    It's dumb but its an easy decision from a business perspective.

    #1 contender that saved the Usman fight on a weeks notice...

    Usman is also to blame considering he called for this rematch to happen, not like the UFC pushed for it by themselves

    GOATmaev will never call out journeymen when he's champ in 2021

    i do agree Masvidal fighting for the title is a waste of time but why should Colby get a rematch so soon?? all he's done since losing the first fight is beat the ghost of Tyron

    It's a money fight and it's a reward for Masvidal saving that card at the last minute. Fuck it, why not. It'll clear the way for Colby if Mas loses.

    I agree. I know he's already beat the top 4 guys, but a fight with Wonderboy makes more sense IMO. I'm just hoping Khamzat can make a quick recovery and knock off a couple more wins. Luque, Wonderboy, and Khamzat are the only interesting fights left for Usman at WW.

    I'm not going to claim 100% that Dana nudged Usman to call out Mas but the UFC brass Mas and Usman all know that the first fight did over 1mm buys and not redoing the fight is like throwing away money.

    Is dumb but is normal

    He beat someone at least, and his fight with Usman was waaay closer.

    Masvidal had no answer to Usman whatsoever...

    It's as bad as Frankie getting that FW title shot coming off of two straight losses.

    Usman is going to ride Masvidal's draw and also rack one more easy title defense. An absolute win-win for him. He'll take twice as less damage as the one Burns and Colby inflicted on him. So it's a win-win-win.

    He won 1 or 2 rounds in my opinion.

    UFC has always been short-sighted: cashing on immediate popularity instead of investing in potential stars. Masvidal is popular now; casuals will pay to see him fight. So, this bout is happening. Nothing new. Perhaps Usman will finish him this time.

    Most everyone here agrees that Masvidal and Conor should not get title or even #1 contender fights.

    Many acknowledge the facts around why they are getting them.

    A few strongly defend it (because, you know, anti-communism, money wins, you'd understand if you weren't so poor, etc.)

    But everyone agrees that if it were a pure merit system it would not go down this way.

    Waddyagonna do. This is the cost of being a fan.

    It’s all usman’s fault. The guy called out GSP and Masvidal in his post fight interview. I hate Colby but no one else deserves title shot more than him. Usman totally igonoring Colby I guess because it wasn’t an easy match for him when they fought.

    I'd rather see Wonderboy or Edwards get the shot over Colby, but Colby at least has a win since he lost. Whereas Masvidal blatantly ducked Colby, & is getting rewarded for it. Great way for the UFC to incentivize more ducking.

    Jorge had very brief moments in that fight. Usman was very dominant.
