    If Yoel came out and destroyed Israel quickly, what does that do for the division? Do we see an instant rematch? Does Whittaker fighting for a title become more or less likely? Could Yoel hold it?

    My take is this is a very stupid fight matchmaking wise. I want to see it 100% but I just feel with Yoel as a champion, without the adesanya rematch, Yoel has already fought and lost to Whittaker and costa or knocked off all the other contenders... with Israel you have a lot of fresh match ups and Israel is young. Cannoneer has to be next if it's Yoel, bit more options with adesanya. It just feels like such a risk for the UFC if Yoel does win , and I love Yoel.

    What do my sherbros think about this (besides debating which fights Yoel lost that were actually "robberies")

    Romero rides into the sunset as the best MW to ever do it at over 40 years of age.

    He then automatically starts bashing Jon Jones which is an unusual clause that seems to be written in the MW title contract

    Can't be the goat when you lost twice to a fighter who's not even considered the best of his era...

    Sick Note Whittaker fights him next and beats him for a 3rd time.

    If Yoel fires back with actual strikes instead of tongue wagging...he'd pull off the win.

    I just can't see Yoel finishing Adesanya.
    Adesanya is very fast and Yoel didn't look good in his last fight. He was slower.

    But I am glad for Yoel that he got a 4th TS after being 1-3 in his last fights and missing weight 2 twice.

    Then the ufc will be happy...


    If you give a fighter undeserved title shots repeatedly then he is bound to win the championship eventually, right?

    In all reality, Izzy wins on points easily. He will have to stay focused tho, because all it takes is one slip up against Romero. I see him winning atleast 4 rounds but I do think at some point Romero will do some damage and potentially take a round.

    Jez that sounds even worse when I remember he missed weight.

    Its a cool fight, but Gay Jesus does not deserve it.

    If Yoel wins the belt, there will be an interim one really soon because he's going full Cejudo and will never defend it.
