He gets hit with glancing blows a lot and really I don't see a problem with it outside of it works against you in decisions. It is a strategy he wants to stay in the pocket and if he can roll and not be hurt by those punches to land more powerful ones of his own then it is valid. As we saw though that style of his leaves him pretty open to knees and kicks.

I really enjoyed the fight too, but that third round was a bit of a BS move on Masvidal's part. It wasn't extremely bad, but he became a counter striker only, backed out of engagements and then took noons down and held him there.

He won't be able to do that with someone who's in the fight for the whole 3 or 5 rounds.

but he has a direct link with god in his corner, so what do I know?

IMO he did his job and did the right thing in round 3. He already had this fight in the books, why risk it. Masvidal can't be blamed for being the better fighter and for doing whatever he wants during the fight.

same could be said for Guida/Pettis, right?

Guida went for it more in RD 3 also.

This fight was also another example again on how bad Nick Diaz is.

GSP will easily outstrike him if he wouldn't have this Planet Edge on the Ground..


Masvidal is really good, but Gilbert is too good of a Wrestler I think.

Very true about Diaz and also very glad Masvidal won, Noons needs to get an ass-whooping now and then for being a douche.
