Really good fight. I'm thinking Noons will have a pretty big advantage on the feet and will utilize it well. Noons by a pretty convincing decision.

Can't wait! If Noons hasn't done something about his hair, I'm expecting a Masvidal knockout.

Jorge is a pretty good striker, i wouldn't be surprised to see him out point Noons.
