    The hype is indeed real... Adesanya passed his biggest test to date. Gastelum is a dangerous dude that throws HEAT lol. But what's up with the Jon Jones talk? In my honest opinion... Jones would seriously hurt Israel. He isn't ready yet... maybe in 2yrs or so, more experience and he needs to bulk up a lil. Grow more.

    As it stands right now if they fought... I just see Jon being too big and strong for him. He can hang standing with Israel, he has the chin, the length, the reach and skill to do so. And if he gets a hold of Israel he is going to really hurt him in the clinch. Let alone the vicious GnP beating he would put on him. Ugh.

    Don't even wanna see that. Let that dude develop a lil more... dominate middleweight FIRST then talk about a Jones Fight. Tooooo soon! Thoughts guys?

    Its like Conor fighting Cormy. He is too small for Jones.

    Bad look calling out smaller guys. Only interesting fight for Jones is DC at heavyweight IMO.

    DC should never agree to fight Jon again at any weight.

    Jon just has his number? Very possible. At HW though DC has crazy power and undefeated. Overall yeah it is a bad match up for DC.

    That's not my reasoning here. Jon shit the bed too many times with PED shit. DC got the title in a lame way but he still defended it with some great fights and imo one upped Jones by going up to HW and getting that strap too. At 40 the risk reward isn't too appealing I'd say. DC is winning and he should go out on a high note and just cut Jones out.

    Agreed. We're going to see Izzy vs. Bobby Knuckles first. The oddsmakers like Whittaker's chances:

    Is StyleBender gay?

    I don’t care either way but there seems to be hints...

    Whittaker is a savage. That's a really tough fight for Adesanya. Truthfully I think I'd favor Whittaker.

    I've been saying for a while now that when 2 fighters say they want a fight they should give it to them. At the next available UFC event, regardless of weight class.

    Jon Jones takesdown everyone including olympic level wrestlers.

    IA will quit from the first hell-bow to the dome

    Plus Jon Jones has longer reach and seems more versatile in striking than stylebender.

    Also Jon Jones’s experience at fucking up at the top level, IA has no chance.

    Jones is unfortunately the smarter fight to have, because it's better to lose to Jones ina different weight class while getting ppv points that to lose to whittaker while getting ppv points and then never get ppv points again.

    Unless he is already not getting ppv points, so Whittaker is the right fight then, since he has a better chance of winning, although I'm not sure he will. Although I didn't think Whittaker looked too hot last time out.

    Stylebender has a great future ahead of him. That could change if he takes a ruthless beating from a bigger, juiced up, Jones. He should stay away from Pico Jon and focus on his own division for now.

    Agreed. He's too small for his own division to be thinking about 205.
    But lol @ Jon being offended that Izzy thinks he has a chance. Like ... how dare he!
    I mean it would be like someone asking Jon if he could beat the champ in the weight class above. What should he say, no?

    LMAO! Izzy calls him a shit-cunt which happens to be one of my favorite adjectives (as many TMMACERs can attest).

    But this is entertaining, and surprisingly thoughtful. Time-stamped for your pleasure:

    This is a piss weak bitch move for a fighter who wants to be mentioned in Goat discussions. Calling out lighter guys who aren't even the champion. Is he going to go after TJ or Cejudo next?
    If he wants fan respect he'd be looking to go up and fight dc, rumble or stipe, not trying to rely on the balls of smaller and younger fighters to step up fight him.
