Rodolfo Vieira is probably the nightmare matchup for Izzy in 185.

    Rodolfo vieira, undefeated with 7-0. He's the most accomplished BJJ artist to ever step foot in the octagon. Even surpassing Werdum and Jacare.

    And unlike other BJJ fighter, Vieira actually has pretty good takedown. And he's very big for the weight class, quite a lot bigger than izzy. which matters a lot in the wrestling department. if Vieira took Izzy down one time, the fight is almost guaranteed over.

    Viera could challenge Romero and Costa for the natty GOAT title, I'm in awe at how tick, solid and tight he looks! (no homo)

    Edit: he is also ok at BJJ I guess and could give Izzy trouble, sorry I got sidetracked...

    If he can stay close to Izzy for the TD he might beat him. But he has to pass through a lot of killers in MW. Remember Davi ramos? he's having a hard time and he's probably as accomplished as Rodolfo in BJJ.

    Nah Davi BJJ accomplishment is nowhere near viera. And if it weren't for Islam and Tsarukyan(both are champion material), Ramos would already be in the top 15.

    Eh. If he could get Izzy down then yeah, but Adesanya had great takedown defense and I don't think Vieiras takedowns are quite there yet.

    Davis Ramos is not even close to Rodolfo.

    Its basically sacrilege to suggest they are even on the same plane of existence.

    I've got the torches, you bring the pyre?

    the guy is a fucking beast but does appear a bit chinny, really panicked when he got cut by safaraov. no doubt he has the tools submit anyone within 185, provided he grabs a hold of him. reminds me of strikeforce jacare.

    Gordon Ryan would be in that same MW division if he transitioned to MMA, this guy should be his debut fight

    I'm a fan of Rodolfo.(I'm a black belt in BJJ) but his standup is to rigid and his take downs without the gi aren't as good.

    He will get tko, ko by izzy sadly.

    He didn't got rocked by Safarov, but his eye was completely shut down after a kick and he had to rush with the takedowns

    The guy is a beast but he's gotta beat a few legit guys first. This will be his 3rd UFC fight all vs bottom of the barrel for UFC caliber. This mentality has been around forever and you rarely see specialists become champions. The 8 million tards crying about how Palhares would kill Anderson at the time to name just one was about enough of that shit. Well this guys really good at this soooo....lol. Like those idiots and their so and so with 6 weeks training ='s champ threads. Dude's a beast we get it, but his whole game is slacking and who knows how it comes together, waaaaay to early for this crap. This next one is shit matchmaking too.

    Israel would never let him get close enough to get a takedown. Israel's distance control is probably the best in the UFC. He'd just keep the fight at distance and eventually TKO him.
