21-0 Yaroslav Amosov would be a good fight.


Masvidal vs. Rory Macdonald and Douglas Lima who ya got?

Looked like Jorge was destroying Imada until he wasn't




It's important to remember that unlike Ben Askren, he got bodybagged in Bellator and that's footage, a marketing angle the competition would own with Jorge as Champ.

Interesting thoughts. I think masvidal matches up well against Rory. Mr McDonald does well when he can dictate the range with his jab, masvidal would likely pressure through the jab and find his range, night end up looking like Rory vs Lawler. I like this fight a lot.  

 

I could be mistake however, I feel Rory may be the larger fighter. He could use his wrestling we saw vs nate Diaz and ragdoll, and frustrate masvidal. I would still pick mas over Rory. Especially this Rory with questionable motivation. I am not too familiar with other Bellitor WW fighters.

Masvidal vs. Lima is the one "co-promotion" fight I want to see the most. Neither are currently champs, so the promotions definitely have less to lose.

And neither are draws, so they have nothing to gain

Doubtful.  Jorge has beat the guys he should have beat and lost to the guys he should have lost to.  A win over hype machine Till, who had his soul taken last outing, and a 2 second KO over Askren does not mean much.  Lima, Koreshkov, Gracie, Rory, Ruth all would posesome problems.  He could win the title but it would be no sure thing.  I still think he is going to go like 2-3 in his next five and people will be again brought back down to earth.

He absolutely could. The top few guys would give him problems but I think he'd  give them all some problems as well.

I'm surprised he didn't fuck his shoulder up like Johnny Walker did in his celebration.

Anyone in the UFC top ten would likely be Bellator champ.
