    Anybody else feel he is being disrespected?

    1. I felt Reyes was looking past him a bit and considered the belt to be a formality to some extent. Alot of his energy seemed to be on squaring the ledger with Jones.

    2. Jon Jones talking about 'getting his belt back' after winning as if Jan is a pushover.

    3. Now we have a stick figure MW challenging Jan in his own weight class which is essentially openly treating him to a Bisping-tier cherry pick.

    Would love to see him absolutely destroy someone to the point they can't physically recover.

    Yes he is.
    That's why he loves to play basketball with heads of his enemies.
    I'm loving this fight. Jan is not a pussy.

    I do think Reyes was overlooking him but I think he'll need to get a defense or 2 before he's fully appreciated

    A lot of people will never forgive fighters if they had rocky beginnings in the UFC, as if it's impossible for them to improve. It's noteworthy that the other fighters you numbered all are/were undefeated for a long time and probably share that snobbery. "How can I possibly lose to someone who got beaten by a barista with a funny mustache?"

    Jan gets to have the last laugh if he knocks the guy out. I’m picking Jan to do just that. He has dynamite in both fists, as well as his kicks. And it only takes one.

    I think so, but I also think izzy smokes him.

    We will see.

    I also agree he is not given enough credit, and even by myself.

    I feel like we’re going to see another upset
    Sadly people will attribute it to izzy bring overhyped instead of Jans toughness and skills

    Its because he won the default belt , not the lineal.

    Until Jones comes back he will not be the lineal champ, and not get any hespect.

    For sure. Izzy talked multiple times about wanting to fight Jones but if he really wanted to I'm sure that fight could have been made. Jones would have taken the fight assuming he could outwrestle Izzy. People just don't respect the Polish but they are getting many lessons as to why they should be respected. Izzy is absolutely the better fighter in my opinion but Jan is a large man with real power. Izzy has beaten multiple powerful men before though, and made Costa look foolish, so it is an interesting matchup to me.

    A little disrespected, yeah!
    Reyes was sloppy, indeed.
    Adesanya beats him easily, imo.
    Why disrespected?
    The man has 8 losses, though.

    He has been for a while. I was saying that he would beat Jones also. People were sleeping on Jan and are/were too high on Jones (at this point, not his career). He walks through Jones pitter-patter and leg kicks and beats Jon up. Jon is figuring a way out of this sport without getting KO'd. He's very smart, he knows it's coming. He's like GSP in that way, that's why he's leaving the sport soon.
