Kelvin shouldn’t have taken the fight
nothing wrong with letting himself heal up some and give his mind a break.
dana loves the guy he aint getting stripped for taking an extra month or two off after doing 6 fights in 14 months
Interim champ taking time off, strip him. KG vs Whittaker in septemeber, lets pretend that fight never happened.
Izzy needs to understand the UFC will move on without him. Colby Covington had surgery and lost his interim title. Tony Ferguson slipped during a mandated UFC media tour and lost his interim title. Dana has always said, we give you the opportunity but if you don't want to fight, I can't make you fight. Not saying it's right but Dana has proven he's petty enough to strip Izzy. I sure hope Dana and the UFC will allow him to rest up until late fall or the December fight card. He's had a ton of fights over the last year plus and the Kelvin fight took alot of out of him for sure
Colby got stripped for not taking a fight with TWood a month after he broke RDA...
Candesanya just got a grappler-free way paved for him to a fake belt and now he can’t take a fight almost half a year away in his own neck of the woods.
BWAHAHAHAHA this is gold! Strip this guy already.
Basically a nutshell of Whittaker's title reign, using your logic.
They might've tweaked the schedule a bit since, but Rousey-Holm was November. If they're targeting that month again for a Aussie card, that'd probably be perfect. The man can eat proper for Christmas for the first time in years
September is Abu Dhabi anyways, they want him vs Whittaker in Australia I thought?
He has said that before, see what he says in a couple weeks time when he’s recovered and training again
Another interim champ about to get stripped
If he turns down a title shot, no matter when it is, then yes you strip him
Guy deserves it but Dana probably throws a bag his way that he can’t say no to. UFC selling out a stadium is too much press to lose.
He turned down a date. You don't get to just force a fighters hand on certain dates when they've been incredibly active as is. Don't give out interim titles if you're not going to let the guy collect themselves and prepare for the task at hand. If he fights within 6-8 months it's perfectly fine. Sept is less than 5 months away and i'm sure his body could use the rest of not jumping right back into a hard championship fight training camp after just going 5 rds hard against an elite. And literally almost a year to the current date had 5 fights in 12 months upon entering the ufc. Whittaker's withdraw created this scenario, not Adesanya needing a rest period.
Considering how active he's been , I have no problem with it.
December seems reasonable.
Everyone gets a belt!!!!!! Interim, interim, runner-up to the 2nd place contender belt!
obviously i wanna see this fight asap, but he definitely deserves the time off.
dude has 6 fights in just over a year.
christ i hate this site lmao, don't be dumb.
dude has had SIX fights in just over a year, he deserves the time off.
I don't mind Jacare getting a long overdue TS.
I’ll assume you are trying to be funny..
But No, Izzy ain’t ducking, The guy truly deserves and needs to rest. The man fought 3 times in 5 months. Think about it...
Robert Bobby (last fought June 2018, before that, July 2017) and Rose (last fought April 2018) have gone over a year without fighting, this man has fought every two to three months for a year straight. Let the man rest and recover. I hope Adesanya gets the rest he needs and deserves.
