    Only a greasy Miami born guy would celebrate like this. Pathetic scum fuck.

    just really classless

    hitting him multiple times when he was clearly out cold

    then pounding the ground next to his head when the ref came over to cover up

    I mean…

  • thevogaman

    That’s Masvidal. I think if they give him Usman he gets smothered for 5 rounds though.

  • Kassdog

    Someone on Twitter was saying that was the plan. Start with the flying knee.

    I would 100% Usman

  • someclevername

    I’m not saying it’s right, but some people seem to be surprised by* what kind of guy Masvidal is lol.

  • Equanimeous

    I think Rousey has a knockout like that, its a terrible move if you believe your the better fighter. Askren was all talk, but had Masvidal not made contact in that perfect spot he opens himself up to a quick submission.

    Doing not bad to tonight dang it i should have added chance as the underdog.

  • Kassdog

    In my 20 yrs of watching MMA, that is the most gangster finish Ive seen. Why are people butthurt with Jorge’s celebration & follow up shots? This was personal. This isn’t fucking tennis for christ’s sake.

  • thevogaman

    And what happens if Santos wins? MMA dfs is so crazy!

  • Jordaneck

    I played Luke Rockhold again damn I’m so bad at ufc lol. With song, Masvidal, Chiesa, Jones

    If you wanna dip gasoline and fight a bear after drinking a 6 pack before a 12 mile run with no emotion that’s cool, but if you can’t see why participants and fans of MMA don’t like when people act like a dick when you don’t know if someone is okay or not, you’re asking the wrong questions.

  • Kassdog

    Good night folks. Early if you ask me.

    No one is “butthurt”. I don’t know where the butts come in to it.

    just calling Masvidal out, and deservedly so

    first round knockout by Nunes, brutal night.

    What drew me to the sport in the 1st place was the respect shown by fighters after the fact. But when shit gets personal, all bets are off. Ben talked a ton of shit, go look at all his interviews. He had this coming to him. Surprised Jorge didn’t rub it in more TBH

  • thevogaman

    She was always a good play, but that was an early stop

    I’ve had plenty go personal and I still waited until I at least knew they were okay, not trying to wish disabling or death on anyone know matter how much they pissed me off, and i’ve had plenty try

    Calling him out for what Yis? If Ben had been respectful pre-fight I would understand being upset with Jorge. But that was not the case.

  • iron_tactics

    In addition this sport is entertainment as well, alot of the shit talking is just shit talking for the sake of creating hype.

    exactly

    I don’t know what the hell scott is talking about.

    Did Askren talk trash? Sure, he talked plenty of trash. Welcome to fighting. That’s what they do.

    That doesn’t excuse this kind of behavior.

    “wahh, that dude said mean things pre-fight about me”

    if that was the case, every fighter should be acting like a tool after a win.

  • gje627

    Sad to see the early stop, as Holly Holm and Amanda Nunes might be ARE the two classiest acts in UFC history.

    Kudos to Nunes but really sad for Holly Holm.(:

    Well some do after a win which again is just entertainment, but dude went stiff as fuck and then he got in some extra power shots. Not even awake yet ya know

    that’s my main objection

    extremely low to hit a dude who is clearly unconscious with huge shots

    Maybe you don’t like him, but that’s no excuse for trying to kill him or cause permanent brain damage.

    No respect for the sport. Usually, guys have enough sense to realize they’re in this together.

    And then after he does that, he doesn’t even think he did anything wrong with the comments post-match.

    Someone who wasn’t a complete scumbag would say “you know, I don’t like Ben, but I hope he’s ok. I didn’t mean to do that.”
