    Not a hot take, Izzy should be the favorite imo. Hoping he gets stiffened by the Soldier of God though

    I hope he’s right. Another TS after the losses, and weight misses is just ridiculous. It would be an abomination if he actually became the champ after this string of fights.

    Just lose, and then Romero can move into irrelevancy.

    Who has Firas coached that’s elite besides Pierre and Rory?

    Prime Romero would stiffen Adesanya via GNP

    Yeah, who has he coached that is elite besides GSP and Rory. That's like...nothing.

    And "Prime Romero" would hurgle burgle durgle. Ya know man? Like, lets appeal to things that might have happened in the past, but are no longer relevant. I mean Prime Gilgamesh would whup all their asses at the same time brother.

    Firas also said that theres a 50/50 chance that Walker will beat Jon Jones before the Corey Anderson fight and before Jon was even seen as less competitive (before the Reyes fight).

    Izzy is going to piece Yoel up and make it look easy.

    Lmao as if coaching Rory and GSP is nothing.

    He coached Kevin Lee a few months and look at the result.

    Firas Zahabi has competed in boxing, muay thai, wrestling and BJJ, is a John Danaher black belt, trains and spars with professional fighters on a daily basis and has been a coach for the last 20 years. What could he possibly know about fighting?

    I THINK IZZY WILL BE A SORE LOSER AFTER ALL HE WILL BE CRUMBLED TO DUST BY EITHER PAULO COSTA OR THE RISING PROSPECT EDMEN SHAHBAZYAN (MARK MY WORDS) THIS IS NOT A PREDICTION IT IS A SPOILER

    If Romero manages to trip Adesanya and gets it to the ground (like how he did with Machida) it may be good bye Adesanya.

    How many wins does he have via ground n pound? Besides that, there is no evidence that Yoel has significantly slown down or is any less dangerous. You are talking out of your ass.
    If you think Yoel would beat Adesanya then you must think he would have beat Anderson too.

    Adesanya has lost before and come back stronger. Another clueless post. You know absolutely nothing. That's not a spoiler. Just a hatter's dream.

    Of course Izzy will beat Romero. It will not be particularly competitive.

    Yoel will win but miss weight. Izzy then wins the immediate rematch.
