Can we all agree that Adensanya gets tagged pretty good in most all his fights??

    I re-watched his fight with Rob and his fights with Kelvin and Silva.

    Even in the Whittaker fight, Adensanya was getting tagged pretty good. Rob became over-confident at the end of the 1st round and ran into a perfect counter.

    Overall tho, Whittaker was finding his mark on the much taller Adensanya for most of the first and a good part of the 2nd.

    Kelvin and 56 year old Anderson were getting good shots on him as well.

    Technically, I think Adensanya is way superior to Costa.......but Costa has a chin and way more pop than Whittaker so it could get interesting.

    Jon Jones would make Adensanya look foolish, people need to slow their roll on that.

    I think you'd be surprised if Jon and Israel fought.

    If boring 5 round low-out put Jones fights Israel I don't think he'd just be able to land everything he throws. Israel's faster than him on the feet as well. He'd probably just take Israel down and try for a GnP finish

    But TS, what striker doesn't get tagged in their fights? You can't go swimming and not get wet

    Not that badly and to answer your question, Khabib and Prime Anderson would barely get hit.

    It's hilarious how people think Israel is some untouchable monster who will beat everyone at LHW. Reminds me of the Machida era.

    Israel is SOOOOOO overhyped its ridiculous. Honestly i think the only reason why he won is cause whittaker bought the hype and got wreckless. Dont see israel defending the title nor winning his next fight after that

    I agree but Machida never got tagged with power shots like Adensanya when Lyoto was at his peak.

    I asked about strikers only so Khabib is out of the equation. Israel wasn't really getting tagged on the chin by Whittaker either. He was either riding the shots or barely getting out of the way

    And your guy Silva wasn't the most illusive target in the world either

    Chael was throwing some pretty telegraphed shots and they were landing. Spammed overhand lefts

    What's the reach discrepancy? Israel is logical in saying he needs around two years until he would potentially entertain that fight. He comes off as cocky at times but he wouldn't pull a Holloway he would look to take time to transition to 205.

    Definitely. Lyoto's defense was great at the time.

    Maybe Costa can make him do the “Shad-face”....would be great.

    What about all of Silva’s fights on his run to the title and his defenses before this? He literally was clowning and KO ing people.

    You pull up one fight(one that Silva won) to try and validate your point?

    Adensanya isn't a pure counter striker like Anderson was, so the comparisons are retarded. All they have in common is that they're skinny and black.

    <BC1> similar but Israel is still improving. May-weather really did seem to wait and wait on the Pacman fight. His hatred for Arum had to be a factor. Mayweather is older than Pacman though so it's a bit different. I also legit think Mayweather beleived Manny was on PED's

    Younger Silva wasn't a pure counter-striker just watch his fights against Franklin.....Still I agree they aren't very comparable but Israel idolized Silva coming up so at times they do have moments where they look alike. Fan of both fighters already over the Prime Silva vs Israel threads...
