    Izzy beats both handily. I think Moose will get decisioned but Jan will be finished, he doesnt have the gas.

    There's a better chance you'd see Moose vs Fedor

    Did anyone try to take Israel down like Mousasi might?

    This match-up doesn't really interest me too much. A past his prime Machida being his biggest win isn't really a reason to get hyped up for an Izzy match really.

    Maybe if Bellator and UFC want to duke heads and they want to do a champ vs champ match.

    Moose moved to Bellator for a reason. He is second tier.

    The guy just barely beat a ww and scraped past a 42 year old Lyoto Machida by the skin of his teeth. Hard pass.

    Israel vs. Jan is a very intriguing fight, a very big fight right now. Not as big as it should be but big.

    And I'm sure we'd all love to see Izzy vs. Gegard as well but Gegard left the UFC for greener pastures. And by greener I'm talking money green.

    If it makes you feel better, Israel would outstrike Gegard and everyone would say Gegard isn't in his prime even though he DEFINITELY IS RIGHT NOW.

    Till is huge. Gastelum and Whittaker had plenty of fights to grow into the division. Whittaker is huge as well. When was the last time Lima fought at 185?

    Lima looked bigger than all 3 of those guys vs Mousasi. Idk if you’re aware or not but bellator doesn’t have the strict testing as USADA;)

    He's had two unimpressive performances against not exactly the greatest tests in the world in a row. That is my point. Lima is great, but beating him does not suggest that you also beat Izzy

    Easy win for Izzy

    Moose is 35 now, I've been hearing about how good he is since I started watching the sport back around 2009. He's good but he's never gonna be the p4p level talent that his fans hoped he would be

    Too bad Mousasi doesn't want it. He wants to be the big fish in a small pond.

    Moose has looked very beatable since leaving the UFC. He's playing the back 9 at this point and he either looked very bad vs Lima or Lima is really that good? I'd rather him hit the juice and fight Lovato if he ever comes back from that brain thing.

    The only fighters who haven't attempted take downs against Izzy have been Whittaker and Costa

    Mousasi has one of the best fight IQs all time so chances are he would actually stick to a ground game plan.
