    Come on Elias....

    <{MingNope}>

    *i dont necessarily agree with them by the way. Just wanted to make that clear. I think he is good, but i would agree we havent seen much of his ground/wrestling yet.
    And he is definitely getting fast tracked by the UFC, so i understand why some would say overrated. Although maybe overhyped would be more fitting.
    Also, these guys are jealous as well

    Funnily enough

    The top 2 have definitely juiced/got caught juicing.
    1 of em lost to Israel.
    The other hasnt been the same since USADA and has been KO'd 4 times in his last 5 fights.
    The last one is one of the most boring fighters to grace the UFC. He could probably outpoint Israel lol. Fuck him.

    Just people jealous of all the hype Israel is getting.

    I am a Weidman fan but it's clearly the case. Costa is full of shit though. He is the overrated one.

    Costa KOing fools in the UFC. He's not overrated. His path is way harder than Izzys so far.

    Not really. He's fought bums and Uriah Hall who is inconsistent as fuck.

    Please, show me who is a better win than Anderson Silva and Derek Brunson on Costa's record... I'll wait.

    His win over Hall is his only decent win. Literally. The rest are unproven fighters and a 100% done Johnny Hendricks.

    I would love to see Adesanya vs Theodorou. Either we get Adesanya outclassing him to a brutal KO or lopsided decision, or the hypetrain crashes to a halt when Theodorou humps him to a decision.

    I agree with the first sentence.

    However, costa vs adesanya is a fight i would really like to see. Its pretty much the 2 guys currently on their hype trains clashing.

    We gotta find out which hype is legit.

    Costa got dropped by a worse version of israel in hall

    Whineman is 1-4 in his last 5, getting dropped in all them and brutally finished in the loses

    Elias? Really?

    Brutal. To be fair to Adesanya, judging him solely off his exhibition match/ sparring session with Silva may not be entirely representative of his prospects.

    While costa has literally finished every opponent he ever faced, he actually has only 1 KO in his career and it wasnt even in the UFC. All the rest of his wins are TKOs actually.

    Not trying to be a dick here. I was under somewhat the same impression until someone pointed that out to me yesterday.
