    I could not care less about both fighters. 2 guys, each with so many losses, neither going to get a title shot and cannot compete with the elite guys like Colby and Usman. Both will get ragdolled easily. Let's be honest, hispanics are going to buy this PPV.

    Neither Jorge or Nate has said/done anything to really stir up hype for this fight, but it's still super anticipated based on the reputation of both men. Pretty cool.

    They needed to change the rules for this fight. It’s the one ☝️ thing they forgot to do. I see this fight going the distance and when your fighting for the BMF Title it can’t go to a decision that’s kinda what this title represents and not having any bad decisions. If you go the distance in a BMF fight both fighters should win no matter the punch stats or who dominated the fight. Street Fight rules can’t believe nobody thought about this before the fight with a left then a right.

    This is hopefully going to be the best fight of UFC. I love both these fighters, but I know of Nate and Nick better than Jorge. However, I did my research I can't wait yeeesssssss great fight :)

    Love both fighters, but jorge gets caught a lot. Till got him in the first round a couple times. Wonderboy put him down like 4 or 5 times. He is gonna have a long night with nate. Nate is gonna take this one.

    • Bob alloo
      Bob alloo Month ago

      @Arian Sanders Well, he Ko'd Till late in the 2nd, so I don't know why he couldn't still have the power in the 3rd. It's just a guess on my part. But Masvidal seems to get more fired up as the fight goes on. Don't be surprised if it happens. You heard it here first.

    • Arian Sanders
      Arian Sanders Month ago

      No way he still has the power in his arms to ko Diaz in the 3rd. Maybe by headkick but I still doubt it will be a ko win if it gets past the first.
