Costa didn't look relaxed at all in the cage beforehand, I think Izzy got in his head.

Izzy is phenomenal. A legit superstar. Smartest fighter in the UFC with the skills to back it up

What was it that Kelvin did that nobody else seems to be able to manage?
I like Kelvin, his fights are nearly always fun, but i never had him as someone that would give the champ his hardest fight.

I thought Izzy was overhyped after that fight, but he's definitely proved me wrong. Costa looked like he didn't belong there. He made it to that fight by being a wreckless bull, then decided to be ultra cautious. Whittaker was knocked out twice, but he at least gave Izzy something to think about.

Brutal from Costa. Just stood there while Adesanya chomped away at his left leg.

Yeah reminded me of the Romero fight.

Big reach advantage for Izzy, makes me wonder why Costa didn't attempt any takedowns if he's so much better at BJJ
Ego/ignorance probably made him want to stand in the centre and trade blows.

Cringy stuff from Izzy at post fight press conference, he always comes across almost victim like with a big chip on his shoulder.

Fight went exactly how i thought im afraid , very close to being Izzy/Costa 2. Big props to izzy , one if not the smartest in the game. Very well deserved win.

Absolutely buzzing for Jan, he is getting better and better. Like said in here in previous posts the power of that leg kick and the slow mo on the reyes nose break was class.

My god, Costa put up little resistance. The shot that started it barely clipped him..

Jan win was enjoyable...

I switched off the post fight Izzy interview...weird!

I think that the way that Adesanya beat Whitaker has been the main reason for how his last 2 fights have gone. Both Costa and Romero's number 1 goal seemed to be not to get caught with a counter-strike. Costa wasn't as defensive as Romero was but compared to his previous fights he was unrecognisable. Costa's going to wish he had just rolled the dice and gone for it rather then that anemic performance.

Awful from Costa.

Fights at kicking range with a longer and more diverse striker. Where was the bulldozer who walked down Romero and Hall? Gastelum showed Izzy is vunerable when pressured but he honestly didn't need to break a sweat out there. Costa needed to close distance and throw combinations, his coaches must have been snapping.

Terrible from Costa, absolutely no idea what to do

on the other hand it looks to me like Izzy is getting better every fight or did costa just make him look better?


Fair play to Jan, thought Reyes had his number but Reyes didn't look like himself in there, was he over confident? not sure what to make of his performance.
Jan probably just improved possibly.
