His hands definitely go up before the punches are thrown, just not by much.
    Pretty much where I'm at, not entirely sure what to think actually

    Masvidal is a lot of fun. I love his trash talk and his attitude. He's a scumbag and doesn't really try to hide it. His fights are always good, and he punks Bisping which makes it a plus. Great win, and great post fight brawl as well. He made Leon look like a total loser.

    He certainly did do that

    See, I disagree. I thought Masvisal came out loking a loser. I'm definitely in the minority on that one though, the media have been sucking Jorge's dick big for acting like a thug, yet destory Khabib and Conor for the same.

    Yes you are definitely in the minority with that. Like I say, I'm kinda on the fence with this. On one hand you talk shit to a street fighter you better damn well be prepared for that kind of reaction, on the other hand, what Edwards said was very minimal in the trash talk department and Jorge should have let it go......but then when confronted, Edwards is clearly the first guy with his fists up and again, doing that with a known street fighter/thug mentality fighter you are asking for a scrap.....but then Jorge didn't have to throw down either.......see I'm on the fence

    I must have seen a different video, because he raised his hands to defend himself a fraction of a second before Masvidal threw a punch. This streetfighter crap is nonsense too, he's not a streetfighter(any more), he's meant to be a professional MMA fighter, it's assault. People have been disciplined and cut for much less than this.

    Again though, it's weird the double standard some have for this, and I'm clearly in the minority. If this was Conor, there is no way anyone would be defending him in here.

    From the video I saw, Jorge approaches with hands behind his back, relaxes them and they hang at the side, Edwards hands then raise and then Masvidal smokes him. You can take the kid out of the streets but you can't take the streets out of the kid.......Jorge will always have that mentality......same as when Conor "crossed a line" with Khabib, you can't then be surprised at the outcome. Again, not really defending the actions but i see both sides of it
