    Hopefully Brunson fights smart and doesn't just try to run at Adesanya.

    If a 38 year old Jacare can headkick ko Brunson, he's in for a looooong night against Israel.

    Brunson got stopped by a telegraphed high kick from a guy with shit striking like Jacare.

    Stylebender makes EZ work of him. Sad really, I like Brunson, but he is destined for gatekeeper status to the top 5.

    Brunson is going to sprint face first into a knockout shot

    He could win this if he fought smart but we all know he won't lol

    Brunson called Israel skinny at the press conference but I still see him just engaging in a glorified kickboxing contest...I think Israel is gonna frustrate Brunson standing. To any one saying Israel is "chinny" watch the fights of the guy who knocked him out Alex Pereira has got heavy hands. Brunson has power too, I just think it's funny he is saying Israel needs to hit the weights when I really don't see Brunson doing anything but trying to land bombs on him.

    I disagree about jacare having shit striking, he throws fucking bombs and has great kicks.

    Jacare has serious power and a savage ground game.

    Brunson told us his game plan already:

    Take him down and smash him. Israel has never faced anything remotely close to Brunson's wrestling and even struggled with Vettori's wrestling. Brunson lost to Jacare, sure, but only an idiot would want to take Jacare down.
