@Egg Shen Nah I’ve said before you were the only one on the Masvidal train for years. Now you can’t even get a seat.

Doesn't bother me too much personally. Volko vs. Holloway 2 was my real main event on this show, I even wrote it as such on my calendar. There's still a ton of star power and two title fights to kick things off on Fight Island. Usman and Burns can be re-done in a month or so to boost another PPV. No point moving mountains in this climate.

I do enjoy fighters getting all chirpy when they know there's little chance of them actually getting the call. It's a bit of a McGregor tactic to keep their name in the spotlight. No way would Covington or Masvidal jump in THAT quickly to make championship weight, unless they got paid handsomely, and as you guys say, Dana's not desperate here.

Well, I was completely fucking wrong. 😂

I still believe the card didn't need it, Volko vs. Holloway 2 and Yan vs. Aldo would have been an excellent 1-2 punch that would have done good numbers, but Street Jesus stepping in, appearing to have a bit of a belly (in his street clothes, at least), just made this card must see. I went back last night and watched Masvidal vs. Diaz. Putting aside the silly BMF promotion and the incompetence of the NYSAC, it was a masterful performance by Jorge. Up next I'm going to go back and watch UFC 245 again. I watched it back fairly recently, but I'll never tire of seeing Usman break Colby's jaw.

This is going to be the first PPV I've bought in probably about a year. I've been doing it tough financially for a while- health problems keeping me away from work for a long time, plus getting burnt by a friend who owes me a lot of money. I finally managed to return to work about 3 weeks ago, then had a quick trip to hospital, and back to work last week... perfect timing to shell out the money for a PPV. Got my uncle- who's more like a big brother- coming over to watch too. We both love watching UFC and have gone to a couple of shows when the Octagon has traveled Down Under. He's going to chip in for some pizza, going to be a good day!

Poirier claiming Masvidal may not be as out of shape as people think ^

DC said something similar about Max Holloway too. Think there's some mind games going on.

Yeah, self belief only takes you so far. It’s not like Usman doesn’t believe in himself either. But he’ll have the conditioning on top of that.

God I hope Usman wins. The overnight Masvidal groupies are going to be fucking unbearable with the ‘gangsta’ shite if he pulls this off. Despite them all probably looking like Millhouse in real life. He’s kind of becoming the new McGregor for me. Not in how he’s carrying on himself, he’s nowhere near as bad as that cretin. But the way his fans seem to go to great lengths to try to explain away his flaws and act like he can beat anyone because he’s a ‘G’. Or something. I’m pretty convinced it’s almost entirely nerds living vicariously through him and it’s cringey as fuck. 

Ah, that's a bit harsh, Magic. But I understand and I feel the same way about McGregor, Jones and Diaz brothers fans among MMA FB groups, which between them, Liverpool fans and the "Stay At Home heroes" preachy cunts among my friends with their 'pray' emojis, are the reason I fucked off Facebook and Instagram.
Don't get me wrong, I can't stand the Tony Montana character. It's cringe, it's vile and the fucking state of the cunt in the housecoat at 246 had me chewing the remote control, but he does bring an element of excitement to his fights with the way he fights, and I think his inclusion makes the main event as interesting as it would have been with Burns.
In saying that, and as I said, I reckon Usman literally makes him shite his bags in there. Or at least squeezes a few dribbles of piddle out of him.
