Michael "Venom" Page could easily be in MW.
Who would take this?
Israel via taking MVP down to bore us for 5 rounds like Daley did
i think page has more knock out punch power and more explosive. but adensaya is nasty too.
Probably a 5 round staring contest
Israel is way more accomplished, bigger, longer better.
He's destroy MVP.
Both haven’t faced elite strikers
Daley wrestled Page and Silva isn’t elite anymore
i'd favor israel over page. page is used to fighting opponents smaller than him, i don't think he will do well against someone who's actually a little bigger.
I'd like to see them dance around the way they do and throw just the fancy stuff. Nothing of substance; just style.
It seemed daley didnt want anything to do with page on the feet. the little bits of the fight that was standing daley was just eating jabs, then that one knee hurt him and fully went into panic wrestling.
Israel via panic wrassle
I saw someone post this in another thread, and I will as well:
MVP is a poor man's Adesanya.
Adesanya is a poor man's prime Silva.
Double flying knee KOs.
A accidental eye poke 15 secs in and called off because the fighter cant continue resulting in a no contest. Mvp and isreal keep their status in check and fans lose.
I agree with this but isreal has time. Silva wasnt prime till his 30's
Izzy wasn't just a kickboxer, he was world champion level with a style that translated extremely well to MMA. That gif of Izzy getting KO'd? Yeah that's the Glory Middleweight Champion and the #10 P4P kickboxer in the world. Izzy had that guy Bambi'd the fuck up before he got caught.
I respect MVP though, he turned Paul Daley into a panic wrestler, I couldn't believe it. But Daley is no Izzy.
I always just check which one is from the UFC. Can you imagine a Bellator fighter beating someone good? Lol.
MVP is similar to Wonderboy prior to Wonderboy facing Woodley. If you press him constantly with strikes with threats of throws from the clinch, he will have issues. This style really isn't special especially if they been through the kickboxing circuit.
Daley couldn't strike with him because he had a serious reach disadvantage. I really thought he would have tried hard low kick but he was too wary of the counter.
Actually I think it would be an interesting fight. Izzy is actually nowhere near as accomplished as Page in kickboxing (I mean nowhere close) but he is still very skilled. They are both great at countering, but Page hits with far more bad intentions when he strikes. I want to say Izzy because I respect UFC fighters more, but this would actually be a very hard one to call. Either very boring fight or brutal ko.
Israel by being slightly less of a question mark..
MVP hasnt faced anyone worth mentioning..daley included
Israel has a little better qaulity wins but again..still suspect and unproven..
Id pick israel if i was a betting man
