Whittaker was firing lots of over hand power punches, Israel was more conservative in his approach.
Classier fighter won.
Really reminds me of Anderson Silva.

Had the whole months rent on Bobby knuckles. Wish me luck

Israel did well, he's the real deal, bit of a let down of a fight tho or is my bias getting in the way? Whitaker went 50 mints with a geneticly modified monster like

I don't think you could call that a let down tbh.

I thought Whittaker actually started well and had him winning the first round until he got caught right at the bell. I thought he could get this done by just staying busy but he was winging his shots and wasting a lot of energy, Israel only needed to keep slipping and bide his time. I wonder will Whittaker look at this one and think the approach was all wrong, he got caught bum rushing there, no grappling to test Israel either.

Not taking away from the stylebender's performance, he was absolutely sublime in certain spots. He also has quite the beard as he definitely got caught a few times himself. One of the fastest runs to the title ever surely?

Or conservative as another post mentioned. Adesanya is something completely different.

The co-main should be fun, I'm picking Iaquinta in that one.
Called it.
