    Looks like this is the fight to make for these men. Last time they fought it was a close split decision.

    Who take it this time around?

    Angry, hungry italian will find a way to squeeze the homo-erotic champion.

    Man, a fight where you´d like to see both lose. I swing towards Izzy. Marvin lacks finishing ability, and striking defense is shit.

    Statistically he has the highest striking defense of anyone in the top 15 but good take though

    The way Izzy lost to Jan will have a fire lit under him I feel and he'll be looking to prove a point.

    I'm happy this is the fight that will end up being made (not taking Dana at his word though). I really thought Marvin may have narrowly taken their first one, and the way the Jan fight went down I think Vettori's got a chance. Jan is a way better striker though, so Izzy can pretty much just focus on grappling defense for his camp so we'll see. I'm definitely interested.

    Obviously Izzy lol. Guys Vettori took Izzy down twice and one time Izzy poppee up right away. When he did hold him down he did nothing to Izzy and was tiring out. Vettoris boxing and striking defense is pretty bad. Stylebender ability to lead has improved so much its not even funny. I might put 100$ on izzy if they fight. 3 round KO or TKO for Izzy.

    Vettori had trouble at times with a lackadaisical Kevin Holland. Izzy may have lost to the LHW champ, but he's still the current undisputed king of the MW, and not a scrub like Sherdoggers think. Izzy will be focused and it'll not be pretty for Marvin

    Adesanya has good tdd when he's not tired asf. Vettori needs to come in the shape of his life to have any chance.

    Marvin is awesome, he's so salty at all times. Idk if he can get it done but I hope he does.

    Vettori striking defense is actually pretty decent , even Adesanya said so, if we go by the numbers Vettori Str Def is 66%.

    Agreed ,Adesanya said , in a post fight interview, that Vettori had a surprisingly good head movement.
