The Underground News, Editor
 

JS: That’s neatly leads me onto my next question. Despite your impressive resume, it has taken a while for you to be granted a title shot in a major organisation. Are you only now being paid your dues in being finally acknowledged as one of the best Lightweights in the world

JM: I hope people overlook me. I’ve been paying my dues for a while, beating ranked guys. But I really don’t care. I’m gonna smash Gilbert, get a nice paycheque and then onto the next one.

JS: Do you attribute the fact that you’ve never properly been KO’d to your elusive style, or granite chin

JM: I’d say it was a combination of both. I haven’t got the greatest chin of all time, but I have a solid chin. I take good shots all the time. But more than anything, it’s probably my elusive style. One of the first things I learnt in boxing was the defensive aspect, how to move my legs and head. During my fights, I only tend to get hit a few times cleanly, if that.

Masvidal winning would fuck all kinds of shit up in the UFC LW division, especially with all of this recent Melendez vs. UFC LW roster talk.

Any odds on this fight up yet? I would throw a little money on Jorge via FFM's prediction...

I wouldn't be surprised if Jorge beats Gil. Not at all.

Buenos dias UG faithful...I conducted this interview with Jorge, and I'm glad to see that nobody is underestimating Gamebred's chances...he's a beast, and his focus is at an all-time high...next SF LW champion no doubt

Yeah I'm pretty confident Jorge takes this one. I think it will be a great fight but in the end it will just be jorge's starting block and YouTube will be loaded down with Jorge vs ray and masvidal highlights. :-)

What you said. Anyway, How many Cubans do we have in MMA right now? There's Hector, Jorge, that Romero dude that Feijao put to sleep, is that it?

There's frank mir, hector lombard, jorge masvidal, yoel romero, alexis vila, javier vasquez.

They're all that come to mind right now.
This is a good list.  There's also local fighers in Miami, but they have yet to have recognizeable names.

And yes, I am claiming Mir.  He's Cuban enough to wear a Cuban flag on his shorts so that's Cuban enough for me.

You're right , if he's got the flag on his shorts he must feel he is just as American as Cuban , but still... I don't claim to be German-Canadian . I'd rock a German flag on my shorts too . Phone Post

You knowI've said this before, I don't like it when ppl think Caucasians are just one whole, homogeneous group.  I like asking people where their family is from because al of that is interesting to me.

I think you should rock half a Canadian flag and a half German.  That'd be pretty cool.

Germany is a fucking great team...especially for the past couple decades.

Next year their team is LOADED going into the Euro championships and 2014 World Cup...

In the 2006 Cup they were unlucky to run into the best Italian team ever...
