    This was the narrative before the fight, I made a thread about Gastelum struggling against anybody that isn't old and coming off of a loss but apparently he was going to ko Adesanya... 5-3 against dudes coming off of wins now, 3 of those 5 by split decision, 1 by sub and 1 by UD and now has a UD loss in which he got his ass beat.

    Gastelum was supposed to be the one doing the damage but was lucky the ref didn't stop it in rd 5, doesn't Gastelum have a good chin? How was this so called pillow fisted fighter able to drop him multiple times and rock him every time he hit him clean?

    Now I'm still picking Whittaker but come on, I mean I clearly like to rip on Gastelum for being overrated but don't start calling him a fat welterweight after saying he would knock Adesanya out cold.

    lol yeah i've been noticing a lot of people flame gastelum and say 'adesanya should have won that, he has the size advantage', when more than half this forum were picking gastelum to win by KO.

    Kinda reminds me of how people reacted to Conor when he kept winning. You have the guy who's going to end the hype once and for all, when they lose they're bums and overrated. Classic sherdog really

    It’s pretty clear after last night that Israel showed Anderson more respect than we initially thought.

    Lol I like that narrative. We should call Gastelum glass chinned now too so we can say Adesanya couldn't even finish a fat welterweight with a glass chin.

    “This was the narrative before the fight...”

    One narrative by one small subset of fans.

    Grow up, already. Jesus. Is this tit for tat forum ping pong really what consumes you?

    Adesanya is a stud. I don't like the guy and wanted to see him KOed, but the man has heart. All else is subjective. Hespect.

    The problem is, our view of the fanbase is mostly this lovely eden of the Sherdog Forums.

    Well, at least half of people were going with Kelvin by KO or sub. I'd imagine those are the same people claiming he was some bloated midget WW now. Those sort of fans should definitely bother people.

    The hardest style for a short fighter to deal with... and the guy can fight and he was hurt by Gastelum too, so it's what it is. A 6'4" fighter had the tactical advantage and was able to use it against a very game Gastelum. An excellent fight. To get inside Izzy, a fighter needs longer legs, and too chop him down a bit and then we will see how Izzy does. He's a fine fighter... but he's no Michael Bisping <sarcasm>
