Could Izzy be evolving into an annoying taunting point fighter? The antics and taunting are only entertaining if it's not at the cost of an exciting fight or a finish otherwise fans feel like they are just watching you fool around instead of what they actually paid for. Silva walked a fine line and it lost him fans later in his career. Not that his fights were boring, but there were a lot of people that wanted to see him lose because of him acting like he wasn't taking his fights seriously. And his antics were at least a mind game for his opponents, Izzy just acts like a dick and thinks it's funny which will get him even more hate than Silva and more people wanting to see him lose if he keeps trying to get laughs during his fights without going for the finish or pushing the pace enough to create an opening for the finish. and just to save you fan boi's from the embarrassment of acting like Izzy is a finishing machine: Since 2018 izzy has had 7 fights go to Dec and 3 finishes.
