    2021 Raider Stadium super fight. People may have scoffed at this once first mentioned, however it appears more and more likely provided Izzy can get past Yoel and perhaps one more contender. God knows who Jones fights now as there doesn’t appear to be a real clear cut contender at the moment at 205.

    What say you Sherbros. Does it go down or not.

    If israel can dial that tdd in he will likely beat jon by stoppage. Far superior on the feet, the only issue is hes a little small but he has serious reach and skill

    Jones had to rematch and win then Israel had to remain conscious against Romero the costa..

    I think it is a bit too soon to be thinking about it

    I have a feeling corey Anderson takes him down and dominates him at will. But Jones will win the last round so he'll get a unanimous decision.

    Izzy needs to defend the belt couple times he nearly go tkod by Gastelum

    Izzy keeps talking alot and goes on about Jones but his face was a mess after the Gastelum fight . Izzy is fighting a guy on a losing streak in his 40 s yes Romero is always a threat but Jones keeps fighting guys coming in as contenders

    It's all just talk for Izzy and he has been Ko'd stiff in a kickboxing match

    He wishes he was Jones and he has win over a dozen title defenses before he can compare himself to Jones in the UFC

    Jones said recently (like many times before) that he will move to HW if the fans want it enough. So he better does it fast. He seems on the decline. If he moves there 2 late he might get crushed and then the typical sherdogger will say he was only good because he fought smaller guys than him :D

    If both are still champs it will go down for sure but how knows what happens until then...Jones is on the decline an Izzy has to deal with some killers. We will see.

    Izzy is too small for Jones.

    Yeah it's only a matter of time here. This isn't the same Jon Jones who won the title that we saw in the cage.

    It is a very winnable fight for Izzy. Jones is still great but he's stagnant. He's no longer improving fight to fight like he used to.
