Media Masvidal said recently that he’s “never tapped” ... I look’d into it

    The third paragraph is the most blatant example of projection I have ever seen. That shit belongs in psych 101 textbooks.

    The only fight Masvidal has ever been gun shy like that with was Thompson. Literally all of his other decision losses are close and/or controversial decision.

    Are you really replying he should have gone for broke against a guy whose whole gameplan depends on an opponent coming forward and landing big counters? Like, fuck. Most guys who did that to Thompson got KO'd or dropped. The guys who beat Thompson did it through controlled attacks to land big shots.

    Good thing you're not in Masvidal's corner. Apparently toughness is fighting like a dumbass rather than trying to use an intelligent strategy to fight.

    For the record, round 3 was Masvidal's best round in that fight. Because he opened up more.

    It’s easy to not tap to chokes. Try not tapping to a heel hook or a knee bar and see what happens.

    He lost 30-26 on one csrd and took zero risks. If you're losing that badly and don't go for broke it's no different than tapping if not worse, you are conceding defeat

    Ben did demean him on more than one occasion but I don’t think Ben is racist, at least not intentionally.

    If Larkin Iaquinta Daley and Thompson can outstrike Masdival so can Conor unless Masdival just goes High Guard High Pressure style I see him winning

    Those better have been in tournaments when It "mattered" not just casual rolling.

    Just you mentioning Iaquinta shows that you’re going off hearsay instead of observing for yourself. Under no circumstances did Al win that fight. I was there, the crowd actually gasped when the decision was read. Larkin was a split decision and Daley didn’t even make weight. The only legit shaming from the four names you mentioned came from WB but that was before Masvidal decided to come correct.

    I won’t dismiss Conor’s chances, especially if it’s @LW but I’d definitely favor Jorge.

    The TKO stoppage was bullshit. Also on that same video he did not tap out and instead was choked out. Unless you got the video of him tapping out, it seems like he rather pass out than tap out. #Conorpuss.

    Most were tournaments yea, I competed over 100 times so I was very active. The few times I got put out during training was due to me seeing how long I could take a choke for and one time I got caught with a nasty baseball bat choke that put me out instantly and I was out cold for a minute. Definitely got some brain damage from that one. I felt like I had a massive hangover the next day and my brain wasn’t right for months.

    That's scary and why I never let people hold chokes on me too long. I'm a tapper. Also I had a close call with a head kick while training muay Thai with a pro. It was an accident but I leaned into a head kick. It didn't knock me out but it rang my bell. Felt weird for a couple days and thought I might die that night. Maybe a concussion, maybe not. I saw a doctor the next day and he assured me I wouldn't die if I went to sleep, which was nice. He couldn't conclusively say I had a concussion but said possible a very minor concussion. That was enough for me to not pursue being hit in the head for a living. These guys in MMA are warriors. Head injuries affect people differently. Someone can get knocked out and the next couple days, they're fine like nothing happened. Some people get knocked out and are never the same or it takes a long time to recover from. Remember TJ grant? In line for the next title shot, huge money payday, suffers massive concussion in training. Never returns to MMA.

    Luckily I never got concussed from mma sparring, had two smokers in the gym and went 1-1. That was enough for me and I went back to bjj until injuries forced an early retirement. Sucks cause I miss grappling. If I were to go back I’d train completely different and tap all the time. Fuck being a gym hero when you’re not even getting paid.

    In my mind, losing a decision is almost always worse than being finished.

    Fighter-A:
    Is unable, on the night, to perform as they’d like but is able to at least maintain a degree of competitiveness and not get finished.

    Fighter-B:
    Is unable, on the night, to perform as they’d like and is helplessly outclassed to the point of being finished.

    You’re saying, in your mind, Fighter-B’s scenario is favorable to Fighter-A’s?

    Fighter A of course gets more respect...but how about this scenerio.

    FIghter A (Tyron) gets absolutely dominated (Usman), you could visually see that Fighter A (Tyron) has mentally quit and is just in survival mode...Loses a solid decision(30-27/50 - 45) or worse.


    Fighter B Goes out there, goes for the kill, is competitive, but gets KTFO in the first round.


    Sorry but in this scenerio I respect Fighter B more.......Im tired of guys who mentally quit and just try to survive so they could say "atleast I didn't get finish"


    Tyron/Smith did that recently...Mentally quit and were just on survival mode...IDGAF that they didn't get finished, dudes look horrible...Plenty of guys who gotten KTFO looked way better than them, and I respect that they atleast try to win.
