He should calm down on the talk. He's at the top of the ladder and doesn't have to hype himself into fights anymore.
I think it's good he won the belt and got the top of his game at 30 unlike 26-27 like Conor...Only a few years there but imo those are the years people move from "invinsible party boy" to a bit more settled in their personal lives. Looks like he has some good ppl around him to keep him grounded too.

Adensaya is great, but he's still only one takedown away from taking a beating. Someone will catch him.

Great counter punching there.

I keep thinking Israel is gonna be a hype train, but he keeps getting it done. He hasn't had to display a well rounded skillset, so I still don't know if he has it...and it might not matter.

Makes me wonder how Silva's performance will be judged in retrospect as we see just how good Israel might be.
Silva was 38 when he first fought Weidman. It's an MMA fan thing to use old men performances against their younger selves.

It shows what we should already know - only Jones and GSP can hang with Silva all time.

The trash talk got to Robert. He said that he wasn't bothered by anything Israel said, but he definitely was. Was trying to take Israel's head off with every punch instead of picking his shots.

You can see how emotional Robert was too walking into the cage
I don't think so. It looked more like he was trying to emulate the success Gastelum had as the smaller guy

Exactly. And he & his coach said pre-fight they were ready for that and fixed that hole in his defense.

Rob had success early
Iz also respected the Takedown early

the moment he realized that wasn't coming was when I felt the fight turned
mid-late 1st I think
he could have been in auto pilot after that knockdown at the end of the first

Yeh he looked like he was trying to beat Adesanya by applying pressure, but imo got a bit too predictable after a while.

Great win for Adesanya tho.

I love seeing old wrestler dudes get all butt hurt when a striker can't be stopped.

"We'll get you next time!"

I think he was
I think they both knew it

felt like Iz got confident in last minute or so of 1st round after no takedown effects and landed that knockdown causing punch

IN! for the Michael Paige down fall of this guy.

It will be just as glorious.

Not sure what this means exactly
Get beat by a top 5 fighter in his division?
MVP only has a loss to Lima and just won by flying knee last week

Guy buys his own hype.

And gets Knocked the Fk Out by a Top Fighter with his head on Straight.

That the guy who got out wrestled by Bisping?
I talked the same shit about Conor and watched him destroy everyone, then Khabib came along and I yelled “See!”.
Adensaya will defend his belt 30 times and I’ll still say. “I don’t know, we still haven’t seen him defend a single”.
