    It’s comical because Brunson is a straight journeyman, not that long ago Israel couldn’t even stop b level guys and scraped by with a SD over a ufc newcomer but my how quickly ppl forget.

    I think Adensaya will be champ but it’s way too soon , folks here are going full retard ala Dana white(it’s expected from that clown) but real fans should know better.

    If Israel keeps buying his hype it’s gonna hurt him big time.

    Baby steps because right now he gets wrecked against monster like Yoel, Gastelum and Costa.

    Well he's DEFINITELY improving but I don't disagree that he's not necessarily ready for the TOP of the division this instant. As fast as he seems to be developing his game though, it won't be long...

    Too soon for Style Bender but not for Costa after his massive win over elite MW Uriah Hall

    I think if you look at their records, Brunson has beat way better guys than Adesanya, and is Adesanya's best win.

    Yet in typical Sherdog fashion, Brunson becomes a progressively worse and worse win with every post made about Israel Adesanya beating him.

    Probably because it looked a lot like Silva vs Leben lol. I'm not sold on him being able to get past an elite wrestler (not saying he won't) but the guys striking accuracy is insane and entertaining as hell.

    he could conceivably beat those guys even now

    but i agree, baby steps.

    Brunson wasn't a joke tho, he was like top 8.

    Brunson isn't a journeyman. he's a legitimate threat to anyone in the division.

    "scraped by with a SD over a ufc newcomer" who then got busted for steroids. You forgot that part.

    Brunson is as solid a gatekeeper as there is. If you beat him, you are atleast contender material.

    Vetterli hasn't been busted for steroids though. USADA is still investigating his case.

    "if israel keeps buying his hype"

    dude, he's absolutely brimming with pure confidence at all times. it's the biggest reason a guy with a style like his finds success. Of COURSE he's buying his hype. Rightfully so.

    Of course eventually he'll run into a pressure striker with a really good chin who has some wrestling, or just a pure wrestler and he'll lose like everyone does, but he has no reason to have anything but extreme confidence in his ability, nor should he.

    I agree that Brunson is suuuper sloppy and not very good when he doesnt wrestle, but he also doesnt get destroyed by bad fighters.

    True. Probably just tainted supplements.

    You guys are on crack jj won the belt at what 20 yr old.. Adesyana has more fights / experiance robert romero and rockhold combined.. Dana wants to feed him and build him up for hype and money...

    Adesyana wants the belt just beat a top 10 guy like a knife through butter...

    At rank 6 in mw hes in position for an interim fight him or jacare ranked 3rd.

    Since rockhold fucked got injured .. Hes out and needs to fight n9 weidman just lost and will be out a while since he got ko.
    Costa fucked injured.. Tba

    Romero has no choice izzy or anderson pretty much... Nobody wants to see jacare again and he hada war so tba he might wait til after the interim fight.

    I’m not overrating him. The man shows a lot of talent but I still see some openings. I think Israel is also benefiting by fighting a weaker MW division. Most of the top fighters like Jacare, Weidman and Rockhold are out of prime. Israel has a solid shot in today’s division, I probably wouldn’t be saying the same 3-5 years ago.

    Machida??

    And probably deserved the nod against Anderson Silva.

    Jesus Christ Sherdog, get it together.
