Dominick Cruz vs. Frankie Edgar at 135 - battle of the hummingbirds
LOL. That matchup will be ok. Hopefully they don't show too much fatigue. But the OP matchups are almost guaranteed bangers.
ahhhhh. you left that part out completely.
The word you want is feasible.
Thanks for the detailed response. I can understand where you're coming from with the Adesanya vs Usman fight but on the other, I question if Usman can consistantly get a hold of Israel. Kamaru is smaller but not faster. Also has a massive reach disadvantage. Besides very solid takedown defense, Israel has great footwork and won't simply back into the cage to get tied up. Adesanya doesn't need power. He knows how to set up his shots and hit you in the right spot. Does Kamaru have the striking experience to deal with the feints and get Adesanya to respect him on the feet?
As for Gus vs. Costa. You're right that it does depend on where Alexander's mindset is. But assuming he comes focused, I think it would be another interesting battle of constant pressure vs. constant footwork/movement.
I don't know why you feel Wonderboy or Mousasi are washed up. Especially Moose. But I would favor him as well. Only slightly though. Mousasi would have to make it dirty though. He can't let Wonderboy dance around him and dictate the pace of the fight like he did with Machida. As a matter of fact I'm changing my pick lol.
As for Stipe vs Jones. I don't feel Stipe has the skills or athleticism to really make Jon uncomfortable so yeah I wouldn't bet against him. Still an interesting fight.
