    at MW.
    UFC will protect Adesanya from any of those killers. Or they will wait 3 years for them to be grandpas and feed them to Adesanya, so say OH , he beat THAT romero or jacare, like they did with Anderson.

    Adensanya will fight only strikers

    - Adesanya beat Kelvin while Jacare lost to him
    - Rockhold is an easy KO win for Adesanya

    Whittaker is a far superior fighter to Jacare and Rockhold; there's no protecting going on here.

    If Rockhold gets on top like Kelvin, Vettori, Wilkinson, Israel will not get back up again.

    Jacare was robbed against Kelvin
    If Rockhold gets him down its night night.

    But he won't, as he rarely shoots for takedowns and isn't very good at them even when he does.

    Plus he has a glass chin and Israel has a great guard, so he could probably KO him stiff with an elbow from guard.

    Rockhold is moving up mate.

    Also, Romero or Jacare are only a win or two away from a title shot - who else really gets that shot?

    Next is Whittaker vs Adesanya, someone has to lose. Then they "could" do a Gastelum rematch because it was so competitive, but they would probably do Jacare if he smashes Hermansson.

    Jacare is shot, he is old, chinny and has lost his cardio. Romero's time may be up any minute now, the guy is 42. Luke's shot too, no chin, but may be able to dominate him on the ground if he doesn't get caught standing.

    Rockhold's chin isn't that bad man. He's gone down to bombs. Below average chin but it's not comically bad. He's not getting ko'd from strikes from the bottom, that's a caricature of Luke. Israel wouldn't be able to retain guard against Rockhold or Jacare, and Luke is quite possibly the best finisher from mount in MMA history. I think either gives him major issues (Jacare I'd favor more stylistically, better low takedowns and more durable).

    Israel took bombs from Rumble in sparring, he'd have zero issues with GlassChinhold

    Rumble would absolutely demolish Israel in anything other than a technical sparring session.

    Rumble got dropped by pre-TRT Vitor and forced to panic wrestle despite coming in 15lbs overweight and having a comical size advantage. Rumble also has a shaky chin, judging from when DC rocked him badly in their second fight.

    What are you talking about man? Rumble was never dropped by Vitor and was never "rocked badly" by DC. Israel was, on the other hand actually rocked badly and tagged repeatedly by Kelvin, who is a (far) less dangerous striker, inferior wrestler, physically weaker, and has a much shorter reach than Rumble.

    Owh god here we go again. Always these retarded UFC favoritism conspiracy theories.

    What superstar was protected?

    Conor, had to face Mendes on two weeks notice, didnt seem that safe. Fought Aldo. Got signed to fight RDA at the upper weightclass, fought Khabib.

    GSP, fought nothing but killers in his division.

    Lesnar, had to fight Mir in his second UFC fight which was also like his third MMA fight. After he got the belt from Randy had to defend against Carwin and Cain. Fight after that was against Ubereem.

    Ronda, fought any rightful contender and was matched up against Nunes on her return fight.

    Jones, fights nothing but the best.

    Styles make fights. Rumble doesnt cover distance like Gastelum nor does he have those accurate straight punches. Also Gastelums hand speed is much faster.

    You've got to be joking about Rumble being a better wrestler than Gastelum...

    Rumble has 3 minutes of cardio and then nothing else, Kelvin is the far superior striker as well.

    Rumble also has zero striking technique and just swings wild bombs until he gasses, unlike Israel and Kelvin. LHW is a weak weight class so he did ok there, but his lack of skill was exposed badly at 170 and 185.

    I was expecting you to post evidence of Rumble getting knocked down by Vitor, or tell me again how Adesanya would KO rockhold from guard.
    Rumble is a much better wrestler than Gastelum (isn't even close) and a more dangerousstriker.

    What?

    Conor had full training camp and Mendez was on 2 weeks notice, that's why he gassed out in the 2nd.

    Lesnar was given a TS with a record of 1:1 and he had to beat 65 YO LHW.

    Jones hasn't fought a legitimate contender in years/ever, but that has to to do more with the LHW division being dead for a long time.
