    Johnny Walker
    Remember that time Johnny Walker was the new man who was gonna dethrone Jones?
    Because of his style, speed and unpredictable ways. I never believed in it for a second, but too be fair I thought he would make it into top 5 :confused:.

    Brock Lesnar
    Remember that time at UFC 226 where DC shocked the world and knocked out Stipe with Lesnar watching stage-front? And once he came in during the interviews and pushed DC, saying he wants him next and the whole mma world blew up with excitement thinking we were gonna get DC/Brock or Brock/Stipe. I knew he never would step foot in the cage, just because mma was past him.

    Better Gloves
    There was talks from Dana, Rogan and the fighters about better gloves too prevent glove holding, eye pokes, etc. The whole community sparked up hoping it would happen, but I knew it wouldn't happen anytime soon, too much work that the UFC would have to do that Dana doesn't wanna do.

    People here will hype literally anyone who gets a stoppage win at 205 as the one to beat Jon. Walker, Cirkunov, Rakic, even fucking Corey Anderson. SAD!

    Danger Close
    I’ve never subscribed to the idea that fighters duck one another due to actual fear, it’s more career management and realizing that another guy is a dangerous stylistic matchup or something else important like Money, or gamble to gain ratio, is the juice worth the squeeze.

    The gloves always threw me for a loop, it’s like Dana refuses to change the gloves because someone else was smart enough to make a better design than that adopted by the UFC.

    FFS It’ll take having a major revenue turner like Adesanya to lose an eye during a fight for the UFC to finally act on the obvious flaw with their shitty gloves

    The glove thing didn't happen because the UFC wanted to own the rights to trevor whittmans gloves

    When he stomps Leon and then the Usman/Burns winner, he'll be halfway there. If Izzy is going to LHW then we've got Costa, Whittaker, Romero, and eventually Khamzat at the top fighting for the belt.

    Is it so hard to see?

    He hasn't faced anyone good yet. There is a difference between being impressive in can-crushing and edging out true contenders. I'd say we should still wait a while, before getting that hyped about him.

    I’m not gonna go back and say I was right in any previous predictions but I really don’t see Israel beating Jan. I also don’t believe khabib is coming back.

    I know, it's funny how people believe it. Every champ since Cain Jones has hinted at, closest he got was bulking up too much for the OSP fight haha
