    But is it because of Robert, or Izzy?

    Yeah but if any of those huge punches landed and Ko'd Adesanya everyone would be saying how amazing he looked.

    KG dropping the truth, his performance was much better against Adesanya.

    Kelvin vs Rob is the fight to make unless Till pulls off the victory, I think Kelvin takes it.

    Both.

    Whittaker was coming off surgery and and a long layoff. He seemed to throw caution to the wind and was winging huge punches with zero patience, getting way out of position.

    Izzy looked just the opposite - patient, measured and thoughtful with his game plan.

    I think it was clear we didn't see the best Robert in there but it didn't seem like physical limitations. Obvious ring rust but the cold hard truth is he had a absurd game plan.

    Well yeah, nobody looks good when they get KOd. It's a bad look.
