Hes a bad match up for Whittaker
I think KG would sleep Whittaker too.
If Romero couldnt put him away i dont think Adesanya can . I dont know how much that war affected his chin though
Might be champ one day but Kelvin is going to finish him tomorrow night
Darren Till is Adesanya’s wrestling coach...RIP Adesanya
I believe Whittaker struggles with pure strikers. He does well against wrestlers/grapplers because of his amazing TDD and usually has the advantage in the striking realm against those guys. He was able to beat Brunson, Jacare and Romero (first fight) because of his TDD and being able to lit them up on the feet. He got beat by Wonderboy. Romero changed training coaches and adopted a new boxing style which gave Whittaker hell. Mousasi has been claimed as a bad matchup for Whittaker.
Robert destroys him. Gastelum is a touched matchup for Bobby knuckles
I dont think so. Whittaker is just so damn slick and quick with his movements. If Israel does, it will be with a leg kick or knee IMO.
Whittaker is constantly underrated on here despite his consistently great performances. Because he's soft spoken maybe. He could beat Adesanya any way he wants. Nothing suggests to me that Adesanya is even near Whittaker's level.
No and no
Isreal beats Gas for sure.. But Knuckles is on another level to Kelvin, him vs Isreal would be a great match up and we'll probably get it this year.
Eh let's see if he gets by Kelvin first.
There was Silva...then Jones....now Israel. He's different than anyone I've seen in mma. I'm most interested in his wrestling. I think he's going to be the next middleweight champion. If adesanya is like Silva. Then Whittaker is your Rich Franklin. Silva destroyed rich before in his home town. Israel will be fighting Rob in Australia.
I think Israel would beat Whittaker but I feel like he's going to have a hard time with Gas tomorrow. I hope I'm wrong I'd like to see Israel become champ this year.
Yes and yes
Whittaker is the most underrated champ ever.
I see him going on a run and defending the title a few times.
Adesanya is a significantly better and more active striker than Romero.
