    The man is an absolute unit.

    Better wrestling,takedowns, hits harder, tougher.

    Just the man for the job.

    Thoughts ?

    Now? No.

    He's too flat footed. Izzy has great TDD to boot. I think Moose is too slow now and his tank is an issue. He could make it somewhat interesting possibly, but I think Izzy melts him in the middle of the fight or just puts a beating on him because Moose has a fucking iron mug.

    The guy to beat izzy has to have raw ko power and speed to get inside.

    Either that or very good mma wrestling

    Not now, I don’t think. The Mousasi of even 3 years ago could’ve, but it’d be a tough fight for him now. He’s 35 and has tons of mileage.

    He’s slowed down a lot. On the ground absolutely he could if he tried going for a sub but he’s not active enough on the feet anymore

    Moose is/was overrated AF. Izzy would make easy work of him.

    Yes.

    Moose improved his takedowns and doesn't throw any wild punches (hard to counter Mousasi's punches). On the ground Mousasi has the advantage. Israel struggled against Gastelum who only throws 1-2 combo lol

    Not sure he’d destroy him, but I do think he has the best chance at MW at this juncture.

    No, Izzy is the better striker and he's faught people with better grappling or at least on par. I certainly don't think he'd destroy him by any means but win a clear cut decision fairly easy. Moose will target someones weakness though and will try to grapple for sure. Also has a great gas tank and iron chin so it would be interesting. Regardless, I see Izzy fighting off takedowns and outclassing him on the feet. No disrespect to Gegard, he's a great striker too, but Izzy is about 2 levels above him in that regard.

    Moose in his prime was getting outstruck and sonned by Jacare Souza.

    No version of Moose beats current Izzy.
