They really don't have a leg to stand on deciding on this matchup
Thiago is busy with Glover
People will moan like every Champ-Champ situation there has been... Won't change a thing, and is absolutely the logical move for Izzy.
It doesn't matter what he thinks. Glover is gonna steal his title shot
Meh. Santos's last fight was for the belt and he didn't fight again for more than a year (through no fault of his own). I'm fine with Israel getting a shot over him, Teixeira's the one getting screwed if he beats Santos.
This is the best time for Israel to move up. The #1 contender in MW is Rob who already lost once and he doesn't even wanna rematch until March, so fuck it.
But Santos should just annihilate Glover permanently and duke it out with Izzy because chances are Jan isn't going to survive this one.
Only a muay thai specialist on prime Aldo's level has a chance of surviving.
I agree, but it's a fun fight and at the end of the day, the UFC wanna make money. If they make it soon, it wouldn't be so bad. Let Santos and Texiera fight for the next shot, and let Rakic/Jiri/Ankaraev /Reyes flesh out who's on the horizon in a year.
Of course it ain't fair for Gynobender to skip the line, but we all know that this ain't a sport. Is normal.
Thiago can fight the winner.
It’s not skipping the line when you are a champion of a different weight class.
Isnt he busy with Glover? Both fights can happen.
Santos couldn’t cut it as a MW and now he’s mad that the greatest modern MW is getting treated better than him?
Santos already beat a LHW champion, whereas that "greatest MW" hasn't even competed in the division before.
Izzy can’t go from defeating Goliath to fighting someone he soundly whipped. He’s trying to increase his brand and marketing power so Jan makes sense. After Jan comes Jones for the biggest fight in UFC history.
That’s going to be summer 2021 probably. And what if Jones comes back around that time? He’d for sure cut the line. So now we’re talking about a year+ possibly.
It’s not so simple as he can fight the winner. And, he’s right to be pissed off. However, it is what it is. Fighters and fans alike are just pawns in a little game the UFC controls.
Absolutely, if he Champ-Champs it's only massive PPV Red Panty nights from then on out.. No way he continues to fight folks who have worked for it, I can't see any of his next fights after Jan being anyone but Stipe, Jon or Francis only maybe exception Chimaev.
Its the ufc... of course it makes sense.
Of course Thiago is right. Dana's gonna Dana though...
Might not make sense, it makes $$$
