Brown Not Sold On Masvidal vs. Diaz 2
Speaking to MMAFighting.com‘s Damon Martin, Brown explained why he feels a rematch between Masvidal and Diaz wouldn’t be much different.
“I think we’d see the same thing,” Brown said about a potential Masvidal vs. Diaz 2. “That was pretty damn one-sided. He won all three rounds, all three were pretty one-sided. I think that’s how it’s always going to be.
“I mean on a good day Jorge gets him out of there, and on a bad day, maybe the rounds are a little closer but [Jorge] still wins them. That’s what I see.”
Masvidal is now riding a three-fight winning streak. He has stopped Darren Till, Ben Askren, and Diaz in his current stretch. As for Diaz, he ends 2019 at 1-1 with a win over Anthony Pettis and the defeat to Masvidal.
