    Does anyone disagree with this?

    After getting taken to hell and back by a midget, I just don't see how Israel won't get KOd by an actual hard-hitting MW.

    The other variable is Whittaker's wrestling. We know he has elite TD defence but we haven't seen him use offensively. But we do know he was going to represent Australia in wrestling. Even though that's like representing Victoria's Secret in an eating contest, it does mean that he possesses offensive wrestling and is confident in it.

    Also, it could be a while before we see this fight. Danus mentioned doing the fight in a 'stadium' in Australia.

    Sydney, the shithole where Whittaker is from, doesn't have a big stadium with a roof and it's football season in Melbourne until the end of September. Not sure they'll be allowed to use the Melbourne stadium because it already has surface issues and the football league might push back on them trying to use it in the middle of the season.

    Agree that Bobby Knucks will wreck him.

    Maybe Dana will revive the legendary Outback kumite.

    RIP Neil Bodycote

    I don't buy into the IA hype train. He looks like a poverty version of Anderson. Anderson in his prime would have smoked this kid. I don't see what people are seeing that's so "special" about him and his striking tbh. With that being said, I do think if Bobby Knuckles comes back in prime form, he destroys this kid.

    Where is Chris Weidman?

    He destroyed Kelvin and could possibly destroy Izzy...Mousasi destroys both.

    War Gegard Mousasi!!!!!

    You know where Chris Weidman probably is? In a fucking neurology ward after getting brutally KOd in 4 of his last 5 fights.

    I fucking hope so since he just beat my boy Kelvin. I'm hoping whoever he fights next beats the brakes off him...

    I have no idea who we are talking about in this thread...but he is greatest ever at whatever weight class he fights at and could beat whoever is the champ/interim champ of whatever division.





    But if he loses he will be the worst ever.

    Look at the size difference. That's why Israel's performance was so unimpressive too.

    Kelvin is a great fighter, but he's fucked if he ever fights a 185er with grappling and a gas tank (notice Jacare mauled him on the ground too before gassing out - I still think Jacare won too).

    Agree 100% Kelvin is very very short compared to some of these huge Middleweights yet Kelvin comes in and blasts most of these guys at some point in the fight, great fighter indeed.

    Although his fight IQ is questionable - He has great striking coach in Rafael Cordeiro but last night Kelvin landed that High Kick on Izzy - has Izzy rocked then decided to go for a takedown. (Perhaps Kelvin was gassed at that point so I'll give him that one.)

    End of 4th Round I felt Kelvin had taken over the fight on the scoring cards - 5th Round he lost it all when he went in looking to just brawl toe to toe --biggest mistake he made all fight - let Izzy sit in the pocket and snipe away ...great fighter but some heat of the moment decisions are a little off for KGas.

    His chin, power and good boxing always gives him a shot vs anyone. But he has got a little lucky with mathchups at 185 and has been on a Dinosaur hunt. Literally the youngest guy he has beaten in this run at 185 was fucking 37. The two times he has fought someone not about to enter a nursing home, he's lost. Like the Weidman fight, he would have a fighting chance vs say Luke Rockhold, but chances are he gets destroyed. Kelvin is simply tiny at 185.

    That's why a lot of doubt about Israel is completely warranted. Kelvin was half his size. If Israel was anywhere near the level that people think he is, he should've steamrolled him.
