    Been noticing that alot of people are heavily favoring Adensanya. I think he will probably win too but I wouldn’t be shocked if Jan can pull off a win. Jan is a solid a fighter, hits hard and has a weight/grappling advantage over Israel.

    Does anyone here think Jan can win this fight?

    There was a poll recently that had Jan at about 51% I think. It’s pretty evenly split. And I think late money will come in on Jan.

    I believe Jan wins in either round 2, or 3.

    Interesting, makes sense that Israel is betting favorite he is very popular but I can see late money coming in for Jan too by more disciplined bettors

    He has a puncher's chance.

    Some people can't see past... a certain difference between these two fighters...

    I truly hope it will be competitive though.

    No, people just dislike Adesanya.


    Jan is gonna be target practice all night.

    In MMA, you can never count a guy who has a lot of power and a size advantage out.

    I don't know if Jan will win, but he has some very clear paths to victory. It's not like he's totally outskilled and outsized. He's the bigger guy and he has some advantages over Adesanya too.

    You are the only one discussing "a certain difference" here. I think you are the one who can't see past it.

    Definitely. Polish power.

    I thought he was undersold against Reyes and the same is happening now.

    So what chance does Jan have other than a lucky punch?

    I think he’ll win pretty easily actually.

    I’ve felt this too, for some reason I can just visualize Jan winning this fight by KO

    Jan will probably have 15-10 pounds on Izzy come fight night.

    Weight isn't everything and it certainly isn't necessarily a big factor in striking, but it can be a huge factor in grappling and Jan can definitely grapple.
    Jan is a big guy with a decent reach, hits very hard, has good "bread and butter"-striking and grapples really well, if he mixes it up and makes it dirty he poses a big threat to Izzy and i say that as someone who badly wants Izzy to win.

    I'd love him to win, that's for sure. Not to disrespect Jan in any way, but Adesanya could hardly pick a better match-up for his LHW title fight and I favor him heavily to take it.

    Of course he can win dude. Not many people are saying he can't win, just that Adesanya is more likely to.

    Exactly, I can totally see a scenario where Jan is able to use his size and strength to clinch Israel and drag him to ground. Jan has good BJJ and poses alot of problems. But even standing I can see Jan being a problem, he isnt gonna just stand on outside like Paulos drunk self did lol. This is an interesting fight, not fully sure how it will go
