Masvidal: Fighting Chiesa is just like giving me money

 

Jorge Masvidal is exciting heading into his UFC on FOX 8 versus Michael Chiesa. Although Chiesa won the Ultimate Fighter Live season, Masvidal doesn't seem worried about his opponent in the least:

"There's nothing nowhere that impresses me about him," Masvidal said. "He's like a watered-down Royce Gracie. I don't see anything on this guy."

"I'm excited about getting a W against anybody at lightweight, but especially against this guy. They're giving me money at this point."

Nate and Nick train hard. This dude eats icecream and plays Call of Duty.

BTW - I've recently become a huge fan of this guy from watching "Miami Hustle".If you guys haven't seen it, Genghis Con just released them (took them off private) on his youtube page.Definitely check them out.I also wanna see the UFC introduce a 125lb weight class just so Alexis Vila can get signed to them.

I actually enjoyed that Tim Means fight.Means is a vicious SOB.I thought Masvidal could had opened up more with the boxing, especially to the body, before going for the take downs, but I really enjoyed that fight.I'd like to see Jorge stick around the UFC for a long time and enjoy his fights so I think this is a good progressive match made for him, instead of throwing him into the deep end of the 155lb pool.

A lackluster fight with Tim Means will do that. I wish Jorge wouldn't have opened up his mouth but oh well.

Chiesa impressed my against Kuivanen. I wouldn't underestimate this guy.

These quotes always end in a "HA-HA! .GIF" and a bloodied face of the person who made the quote.Jorge, there's guys ranked above you that would say the same thing about you.
