I hate all this Jones v Adesanya talk. Izzy is a small middleweight and just became champ. Why is there a rush for people to want to see him move up? He's only just arrived

Fairly sure Israel mentioned it himself. Stipe was mentioned as well, which is an even bigger lol.

Adesanya has the height to move up. He'll have to bulk up to make it happen but that should not be a problem considering he is so tall.

I was really impressed with Dan Hooker, that was a total shutdown of Al. Tai Tuivasa has looked seriously poor his last few fights.

If I had the inclination or interest to do it if bet it could go through your posts and find many times where you had a similar lol and out right statement and were wrong.
Would I be right?
Na I think it's more likely that you were just talking out your hoop

I wouldn't call myself an expert just Avery keen fan of MMA. I've given my opinion on Adesanya. I'm a huge Jon Jones fan too, as a matter of fact if you look back a bit you'll see that only a couple of weeks ago I was disagreeing with others who said that Khabib was ahead of him in the p4p rankings.

I do believe that Jones is at the end of his reign though. I believe that if Adesanya can put nthe weight required he will beat Jon Jones. I think a fully recovered Thiago Santos would beat him too.

A star guys possibly in the mould of McGregor. He's brash and he's got the talent.
Nonsense about Jones he has loads of good fights at 185 and he's a really light MW.

Dan hooker was brilliant, Lima had a good fight, tuivasa looked terrible he was picked apart. Good card enjoyed it.

He's in terrible physical shape, no conditioning, really bad cardio, seems really ill-disciplined when listening to him give an interview.

3 defeats in a row now, time to look in the mirror.

Hooker was a savage, his size and reach is huge, hard to imagine he made 145

Yeah, the stadium feels very hollow inside. It’s a huge AFL pitch.

To adequately move up he’ll need to add 20-25 lbs. That would require about two years or copious amounts of steroids.

As good as Izzy is and as likeable as he is , Jone's would absolutely smash him, he would man handle him he'd ragdoll him if he got his hands on him ,
The guy outwrestled DC for Christ sake,
