    I wasn’t a fan of his brashness at first, because I really didn’t think he was as good as he is. But he’s starting to grow on me, and there’s no denying now that this dude is legit.

    Less talk, more fighting.
    I enjoy the showmanship and fighting but he is brutal when talking, like a less funny MVP.

    He's an asshole, but in a good way. I legit LoLed at the "beat Costa before USADA" line.

    Colby is trying so hard to fake the no-shits-given-asshole persona, but Izzy has the real stuff.

    that being said, can't wait for Bobby Knuckles or Paulo USADA to punch a hole in his head.
    Izzy brings out all my shadenfreudes.

    he's aight...


    In all seriousness, you can't deny the talent but as other's have mentioned, the talk is a bit much for me. I can't quite pinpoint why but he just irks me and I can't shake it lol. But hey, that's what makes this sport great. You can love or hate a fighter but either way we're tuning in to either see them win or lose.

    I would like to see someone challenge him on the ground to see what he's got in the ways of BJJ and grappling though.

    Seems ok so far. I get the feeling a lot of his ability is from his height and reach. Much like Jones.

    Talks lots is smack but backs it up and isn’t ducking anyone. Met him in Vegas in July and he was cool as could be.

    Watch a reputable breakdown of his setups and skills and I think you'd change your tune. He KO'd Whittaker in the pocket.

    I am a fan. Has his own personality, isn't a cookie cutter type of dude, and is a literal striking genius. The sport doesn't get much better in terms of an overall package, in my opinion.

    Like him; his personality is a bit iffy but only when he's trying to hype up fights so you cant really hold that nonsense against him. His style still needs to be tested imo but last weekend he made a believer out of me.

    And he literally stepped into the pocket to do that.

    Also he's an anime and comic book geek. What's not to like?

    As long as he keeps beating up wrestlers I'll be a fan. Don't love his talking and dancing but maybe I'll come around.

    He will be the face of the organization soon. I wasn’t totally buying how good he is either. Can’t deny him now. Unless we are saying Whitaker’s skill diminished suddenly.

    Georges? That would be a good fight. I don't want to see GSP at MW again though. He looked great but he may die.

    UFC is doing a good job of that without him.
