    Izzy wants Costa, but Costa is 8 months off for injuries from his fight with Romero. Yea, you lose either way when you fight Romero.



    So Izzy is asking for Romero. There is no other guy that even remotely deserves TS, Romero wants it, Izzy wants it, we are probably seeing Romero get his 4th title shot in a row. God keeps helping Romero get that belt.

    I think Romero has lost step, gasses out in the 3rd and gets finished by fast pace Izzy. But with Romero it only takes one punch to finish a fight, so its not a clear victory, but I say 70:30 Izzy.

    Somehow Yoel is always this grug wrestler who can't strike in comments, while in reality he is always the one outstriking people in the end standing up, not to mention knocking them out.

    Even if Izzy wins this one, You'll will soften him up for the Natty Goat.

    Even without the join date and white belt that post makes it fairly obvious you're new here.

    The Yoel curse is real. Even if you beat him you lose.

    Yoel hasn't been finished since he was an MMA rookie and always does a lot of damage. This fight should be tough for Izzy.

    Sadly, for Izzy, if he wins comfortably certain Sherdoggers will make out that Yoel is a bum who is past it. If he wins but it's a tough fight, they'll make out that he struggled against a bum and the Whittaker win was a fluke. If he loses, he'll be called a bum himself.

    Fighting Yoel is like being involved in a high speed car crash.
    Even if you survive and get out on top, you probably won't be the same.

    You know that the Natty Goat is reading Sherdog and is going to be pissed :)
    I wonder what nicknames he uses here?

    Hard fight to call. This is a very hard fight for both of them IMO.

    I would favor Israel just based upon youth and the sharper striking, but you never know with Yoel

    except he's only ever had 1 title shot that wasn't for an interim belt. this will be his second title bout. Also it wouldn't be in a row because he fought costa.

    and as far as who deserves what right now it's probably cannonier.


    I think costa is even less of a challenge for isreal.

    Izzy, if he fights like he did against Kelvin, will be finished by round 3.
