Boy did that get shut down quick
All because he finished the worst striker in UFC history + Till
Imagine seriously having said Masvidal is a better boxer than Petr Yan.
Or better than about 15-20 other fighters in the UFC
You really think in a straight striking match Usman KOs Jorge?
Has history not told us how a wrestler can KO a striker with the fear of the TD.
Randleman vs Crocop anyone???
I remember when Conor was the best boxer in MMA....
I don't ever recall reading that on here but I wouldn't doubt it. Once upon a time people thought Sage Northcutt was a future GOAT and that GSP was afraid of Woodley lol.
TBF he looked top-shelf against Nate.
No I do not think that, It it weren’t for the Usman fight I would have still started this thread
Never read anything of the sort but I'll take your word for it
I know this sounds like a reach, but honestly Nate is about the 2nd most overrated striker after him, or even 1st
We could find out who the best boxer is if we actually made them compete in boxing..
TBF he had stellar boxing for a while but something went wrong. His fundamentals used to be excellent in his 145 run.
Now his boxing is garbage. Off-balance, no weight transfer, very weird angles. He caught his last appanyents many times but it didn't do shit to them.
Elite boxing indeed.
I was going to add "but who doesn't" to my sentence, lol. Indeed, Nate is extremely overrated. In some of his fights he looked awesome, but in many others he looked like a drunk bum.
Masvidal was the best boxer in mma
remember when Stipe was the GOAT not too long ago?
People always love to grasp at straws for ppl they love more than their significant other.
I think I remember people saying that prior to his last fight.
A few fighters actually call Jorge that. Woodley among them
Boxing the ears off of him
Only idiots ever thought Masvidal was elite, he was blessed with fighting back to back the most overrated and over ranked fighters of all time in Darren Till and Ben Askren. That is why the UFC is mostly a circus rather than a legitimate sports league.
