Jorge Masvidal defeats Billy Evangelista by unanimous decision

by Michael David Smith | source:

Billy Evangelista is undefeated no more, as one of Strikeforce's best prospects lost in disappointing fashion in his first appearance on a major Strikeforce card on Saturday night.

Fighting the much more experienced Jorge Masvidal, Evangelista turned in an unimpressive performance, losing a unanimous decision. All three judges scored it 30-27 for Masvidal, who improved his professional mixed martial arts record to 21-6. Evangelista falls to 11-1.

Definitely not boo-worthy, and Jorge looked very good, but a lack of significant aggression. Kind of an underwhelming fight.

I'll take Mauro over Goldberg any day.  He is at least articulate.

Evangelista very classy after his first loss. Masvidal used his reach excellently and his head movement was great. Good fight. Kind of an anticlimactic 3rd though.
