    The real reason some of you root against him, hate him, call him lucky knee/punch, gets beat by Askren 9/10 times, ghetto thug, classless for throwing extra punches, 2-2 in his last 4, is a journeyman, his kids aren’t going to college, etc etc.

    Every reason you can think of is deeply rooted to this here interview:

    Edit: Removed Spoiler tags so all could see this quote lol
    I can’t think of any other reason not to be excited that someone with some spectacular knockouts of recent has had a resurgence and is finally getting recognition for a no-nonsense all action type fighter that is also very humble.

    No one hates him.

    There is a current backlash to the extreme nuthugging he's received since the Till KTFO. And/or backlash to the immediate appreciation of the "3 piece and a soda" which, of course, was out-of-octagon activity (and there's always backlashes when fighters get fans for out-of-octagon activity).

    By any chance are you one of those guilty of causing these backlashes, TS?!?

    I just like the hair and beard. If he shaves and gets a haircut, I'm hopping off the bandwagon

    Maybe some people lost money when he fought Askren?

    eh?

    The reason I'm on the Jorge train is cause he's always been a fighter with a super high talent level who's lost winnable fights in weird ways and seemed to coast through rounds a lot.

    It's starting to look like he's bringing it on a consistent basis.

    I like the dude he’s a stand up guy and he always comes to fight. It’s unfortunate that he is getting dragged in to Colby’s WWE bullshit.

    So you deny that you one of those who has been talking non-stop about Masvidal recently, which then automatically creates a backlash, and then complaining about the backlash you created?

    Askren pulled the race card first. I'm pretty sure that's why Masvidal said that.


    Mind games...

    If Askren had kneed Jorge in the face in 2 seconds and KO'd Till like nothing Askren would be a God around here.

    Is there any denying that?

    Till still has fans FFS. Because he's white. (If not, please list just one other reason, scour the deepest, darkest recesses of your minds and give me one sound, logical reason that clown still has fans).

    Masvidal was at one point my most picked fighter on Tapology. I picked him against Melendez, Wonderboy, and pretty much everyone else. It has been the vast amounts of nuthugging he's received since beating Askren and the whole "3 piece and a soda" shit that has turned me off. He's the current flavor of the month. Most of his "fans" will stop caring after he loses next time.

    He has 27 decisions, has been a self sabotaging quitter for most of his career, takes rounds off constantly, almost always loses the important fights and any notable names he has beaten - he'd be the underdog in the rematch.

    He's alright and the last 2 performances were fun, but you don't need any conspiracy theories as to why some people aren't sold on him.

    A lot of Jorge's fans are whiteboys and he's not exactly the darkest skinned Latino anyway, so.......

    I don't root for him because he's a terrible role model. The quote where he said he had to go after Edwards because he didn't want his kids to see his dad get embarrassed show how classless he is. I feel bad for his children.
