    For everybody that says Nate could have came back and Masvidal was tired he was on top of Nate in the end of round 3 beating on him it was a good doctor's stoppage

          You could flick that weak part of Nate’s face and it would bust open and bleed. It’s a result of being one of the baddest motherfuckers in the game for 10+ years and taking on 5 rounds of McGregor’s left hand !

                  A street fight doesn't end with a cut, and wouldn't end by decision which means (IMO) Jorge would have got tired then beat by Nate after round 6 or 30 minutes

                      I'm Diaz all the way and I don't really like Dana White but I have to respect what Dana said about the fight. If they did an immediate rematch his wings would open up again and the same thing would happen. Diaz should get his surgery, wait to fully heal and only then the fans would get to see the full 5 rounds. Diaz could've and would've fight till his fucking eye fell out but he'd never be able to fight again and that would be more devastating for not only his career but also afterwards when he's done fighting and only had one eye. There HAS to be a rematch though!

                                    The biggest STAR in MSG for me, apart from Masvidal and Diaz, was Roberto Duran, and no president-actor or rassler-actor.

                                                  Look it, I'm completely fine with the stoppage because it isn't like Nate was winning 2 rounds to 1 here.. Masvidal won all 3 rounds easily! It wasn't even competitive, Masvidal is truly on a whole other level.. I have never seen anyone beat Nate Diaz the way Masvidal did and he made it look so easy..WOW.. I love watching both guys fight an I'm a huge fan of both guys so I was fine with the stoppage because if it would have went on chances are Diaz would be out for a lot longer than he is going to be now and I want to see him back in the cage in as little time as possible .. Should there be a rematch, I'm going to say no only because I didn't see anything that would warrant a rematch.. Masvidal an Diaz both deserves the title of Baddest Motherfu*ker but Masvidal defiantly deserves the belt ...

                                                    Masvidal must fight Edwards and stop pretending he is a nobody, the guy is on a massive win streak and there’s a story there

                                                      I am not paying for another PPV event. That was bullshit cause Tyson fury had a crazier cut than that.

                                                        I feel like it was too soon for Nate to fight after his last fight; it was like a fuckin month ago, not much longer than two....

                                                                Masvidal wasn't smiling at the end of round 3. He looked to be taking some deep breaths at the end of the round. Masvidal threw everything but the kitchen sink at Diaz and Diaz still kept coming. That can be a bit demoralizing. As Masvidal said, 99% of opponents would have folded with what he hit Diaz with. If not for the cut over the eye, Diaz may have had a strong round 4 and 5 as he was finding his mark in round 3 peppering Masvidal with multiple shots to the head. Nate himself in the post-fight said he noticed Masvidal holding a bit more in round 3. Nate said, 'oh you're getting tired huh'.

                                                                  You have to know Nate WILL be cut every fight going in. He has done his best work with blood running. Honestly this fight WAS going EXACTLY how I expected. I figured Jorge would get a fast start and possibly get the first 2 rounds, the 3rd would be extremely close, and and Nate would come on strong last 2 rounds with a fury. Questions coming in were can Jorge endure and survive the 5th and could Nate survive early without being down 3 rounds. Great fight. Love both these guys

In the context of UFC it was the closest thing to a street fight based on both of them engaging the violence and not just measuring each other looking for counters.

Not saying he would have won but we all know he doesn't get tired. Masvidal of course is gonna say he wasn't getting tired but I think he was fading and it would have got worse.

                                                                                          • Eric Fleming

Not so sure Masvidal was breathing extremely hard going back to the corner I could see it I said it right after the 3rd. Diaz is a rythm fighter he has to get going and its like a title wave. He can do a lot better than that especially after being in there with him he can come back stronger. He is one tough muthafucka Masvidal hit him with everything he had and could not take him out.

                                                                                          • J Hall Vapes!

                                                                                          Street fights don’t end in doctor stoppages last time I checked. Good job promoting a fight as the “baddest motherfucker” with arguably the most durable fighter on the roster and you end it early from a cut that Nate has fought with many times.
