    Why do people put so much Clout in Masvidal? He has a ton of losses, no major wins with fighters in their prime and talks smack like he's been a world champion.

    Ufc has not thought of this but lowkey Masvidal v Ben Askren is a great great marketable fight ,even though both have lost and Gamebred also took him out in a few secs the storyline is there and both have fought at the top so it would b big money to see if Askren can adjust or feels it wont b the same..
