Maybe. But he needed KO or sub (probably wasn’t going to happen).

The Nate starts slow and come back in later rounds is kind of a myth as he’s never actually won any 5 round fights by coming back in the championship rounds.

No matter how you look at it though, Nate did not have an impressive showing. He has no answer for Masvidals body shots and close range elbows. His attempts at take downs were all fairly easy stuffed and his failed throw and heel hook attempts just looks desperation.

I was very impressed with Masvidal and think he deserves the attention and the pay he’s getting
