The size difference is too much.

    Obviously Izzy is the more technical striker but so was Rozenstruik against Ngannou.

    Costa looked strong and healthy on the scale, he will be above 213 this time tomorrow.

    Izzy on the other hand weighed in at 184 with some heavy necklace looking thing around his neck. He will be 195 at most on fight night.

    Size matters folks, Israel is a dead man.

    As Izzy said, and I agree with him you don't just win based on size, you win based on skills.

    DJ is more skilled than Ortega

    Would he beat him in a fight?

    10 pounds difference don't matter in striking. Especially when you're taller and longer.

    Costa aint ngannou, he doesn't have KO power. Cannonier is the future champ.

    Costas power is so overrated.

    He's a volume pressure striker. He's not a one hitta quitta.

    Plus he has short arms and swings wild hooks.

    Adesanya is going to pick him apart.

    It's 20lbs, and for a pressure puncher like Costa that is a huge advantage
    Costa is one of the most powerful punchers in MMA

    There's a significant weight difference between those two, but it probably won't matter too much. Either Costa hurts Adesanya early on and finishes the fight within first 2 rounds, or he gets knocked out later in the fight. Unfortunately, I believe the latter will happen.

    Costa is the hardest hitting MW ever

    Name someone who hits harder, I'll wait

    You can't compare Ngannou to Costa, Costa does not have that one hitter quitter power, he's a volume puncher.

    There won't be a 20 pounds difference. Costa start his water cut at around 207.So at most there will be a 10 or 12 pounds difference.

    If he can’t wrestle or hit Izzy, the extra muscle won’t help.

    Henderson's right and everything Melvin Manhoef has ever thrown disagrees.

    I think it becomes more relevant at the heavier weights. Within the confines of the 185 division this kind of element just doesn't pack the same kind of punch as it does at 240+. This fight will all come down to how patient, and how much of a stalker Costa can be against Adesanya. We know what Israel is bringing- he's not going to do anything different. If Costa does not bring something different he will lose.

    Having said that nothing would make me happier than to see Paulo beat the ever loving piss out of that anime fan.
