    Masvidal knows he is the most exciting, most popular WW right now, which is why he is confident in holding out for a big payday.

    Let's look at the top WW right now:

    C. Usman = great fighter but boring
    1. Burns = good fighter, not boring, but not exciting
    2. Colby = good fighter but once again, boring

    3. Masvidal: last 3 fights were knockout finishes against top opponents

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    4. Edwards = not boring but not exciting either
    5. Woodley = hate to say it, but he is no longer the killer he once was

    As an MMA fan, I hope Masvidal holds out for as long as he can and gets paid big money that he trained and fought hard for.

    Edit: Masvidal is also massively popular on Youtube due to his years as a backyard fighter, along side with Kimbo Slice. His recent videos on his Youtube channel got millions of views. He is WAY MORE popular than ALL of the top WW right now, and he knows it!

    problem is he is not fighting and he's not exciting at all outside of the cage

    Well, none of the other top 5 WW's are exciting outside of the cage. Masvidal is actually great to listen to in interviews. Another plus for him if you ask me.

    He could’ve been bisping or chael. Kind of mainstream with his persona

    But you can't be exciting if you don't fight.
    And you can't earn money either.

    Yeo, he fucked up. He needs to fight. Fighting for title is huge if you win, and I'm sure he could tee up some interesting fights like McGregor/Diaz or some other scrappy top10 WW

    As a Masvidal fan, I can't wait for that Usman v Burns fight... I'm more pumped up for that over any other upcoming match

    stop it, he turned down a career high pay day and turned down a title shot. he's and idiot and being exciting means sweet f all when you have 13 losses and threaten people's live, only to turn the fight down

    You hit it on the nail. He should have been the one fighting for the title against Kamaru. He may actually end up never winning a world title after this. Many fighters out there who lost their opportunity and never got it again through either injury of Dana pushing some other favourite scroat through.

    Yeah, he messed up, and is now hating on Burns for taking the shot.

    True MMA fans know him long enough to know that he is exciting, but also a journeyman.
    Casuals dont know him enough, to care about his antics. He overestimimated his popularity imo. Most of the attention came through Diaz and Askren in his last fights and He wasnt able to fully get that attention transitioned over.

    And if he doesnt fight at all, he will soon realise that most people wont give a shit about him anymore.

    Masvidal isn't a big enough star to make the UFC do whatever he wants. Conor, Brock, and a couple others were, but not Jorge. He may sit for a long time if he's waiting for another payday like he got for Nate Diaz. Honor your contract that YOU JUST SIGNED, and stop bitchin! :D

    MASIVIDAL DOESNT "KNOW" much and neither do YOU.
    how is he the most exciting? and how do you "Know" he "KNows" It?

    masvidal is a fighter people want to see fight yes. but so is covington, usman, wonderboy, and pretty much woodley and diaz as well.
    honeslty im starting to like leon edwards. is it because his voice reminds me of old greg/? perhaps

    This. And, Jorge knows that Usman and Colby are horrible match-ups for him. His popularity gets a reality check when he loses and he knows that Usman and Colby beat him.
