Vettori gets starched
Costa gets starched

The problem is getting to Pereira's back. Alex respected Izzy's striking enough that the avenue opened up. The 1st time Vettori or Costa shoot, they're eating a knee and playing hide and seek with consciousness.

So one who actually understands. Izzy is good enough to strike with Pereira to even get the chance to take him down. The only other person who might be able to take him down is Whittaker. Everyone else is going to sleep trying to do so.

So 2 lower level guys in Andreas Michailidis and Bruno Silva got him down just fine but I'm supposed to believe he's prime GSP with the take down defense now? :mjlol:

No matter how u feel about a black man losing or African, or about early stoppage. Just be happy at least Izzy went down 2 a fellow kick boxer. Who came forward to make it a fight. He didn't lose to lay and pray. Or sum1 scared standing away like Romero.

IF ur gonna go down it was to a fellow pure striker who tried to put on a show as well. And was respectful.
. That's all we cn hope

Izzy had the fight tho, boy exposed himself and either got to cute with in his own style or literally Alex was in his head. Maybe a mixture of both. Yeah I like Izzy but let’s be honest anyone bigger than him beats him cause he can’t handle power and Jones would have crushed him. I would like to see Usman go up in weight and try to fight Alex now since he thinks he can fight at 205.

Just in case he deletes it: Bones posted a screen cap of a Khabib tweet "If he (Adesanaya) defends the title a couple more times, he will be on the same level with Jon Jones. Good luck Stylebender.


One thing I took away from last night is that Izzy should thank whatever higher power he believes in that the Jon Jones fight never materialized. Jan and Pereira seem like they have enough respect to leave the trash talk for the pre-fight hype. Jon on the other hand is a pure a##hole. He would have smashed Izzy’s skull and then dedicated the rest of his life to s#itting on that man’s name whenever possible.

Israel was winning the fight :gucci:

Whats all this he fought like a dumbass talk? He got caught at the end
Exactly
He fought like he always fights mostly except for the grappling in round 3
Izzy is a conservative fighter who never does more than he needs to to get the win
But Alex has that eraser. He's got the pop to make the scorecards go away and eventually he landed one and Izzy seemed like he had no idea how to survive. Clinch, take down attempts, throwing back punches, etc. He didn't try anything

because he could've ended if he took the time to add any kind of real finishing skills on the ground, like others have said he's been in the UFC for 3 years...

Pereira couldn't do shyt down there and Izzy didn't know how to finish him, that's gonna haunt him.

Outside of the end of the 1st round, Izzy didn't really put him in the danger zone with his striking, just isn't strong enough, he can't just expect everyone to let him dash around and play the point game, SOMEONE is gonna know how to cut off the cage and have enough reach to hit him. Gotta have other ways to win


know this guy Alex has one hit KO power, he shouldn't have let it get to that scenario where Pereira is cornering you against he cage in the 5th
