    No. Maybe in his prime he'd win a few rounds. But adesanya would eventually catch him

    Matt Lindland > Phil Baroni > Ryo Chonin > Anderson Silva > Forrest Griffin > Shogun Rua > Corey Anderson > Jan Blachowicz > Israel Adesanya.

    The MMA Math seems to support this...

    Colby is probably the 2nd best WW on the planet & I don't consider his striking to be very good at all. Granted, its a different weight class but historically, MMA has been very good to great wrestlers, even when their striking isn't very good. Stylistically, its not a easy fight for Adesanya (yes, I'd still favour Adesanya of course)

    Matt Lindland in modern mma still wouldn't wash his ass 2 weeks out from a fight.
