UFC 234: Adesanya vs. Silva - Main Card PBP Discussion - 10pm ET/7pm PT/3am UK

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Jackonfire, Feb 9, 2019.

  1. I never understood the hype around Adesanya. Not in terms of his fighting skills but in terms of marketability. They keep making out that he's the next conor McGregor. That he's so good on the mic. But I haven't seen anything of the sort. All l hear is some guy mumbling unremarkable drivel in a boring accent that noone can be bothered listening to. Theres nothing interesting about him. I mean he just fought a main event in his neck of the woods and the crowd were booing him.

    Isreal is great and yeah he has a lot of hype behind him but he has real skills and great striking.

    I'm a fan and hope he finds more success in the UFC.

    It seemed to be a competent fight from both fighters.

    Israel obviously didn't want to destroy, Silva was tired and fighting a younger man.

    Not much more to be said really...played out pretty much as could have been foreseen.

    So many of you are watching fights for ages, and still didn't figure out that when two counter punchers meet, they cancel each other out?

    'Not impressed with next level striking from Israel'..really? Well his highlights real, as Anderson come against people that tend to plow forward, not against people with similar style that stand back and counter.

    A lot of you need to train some more UFC.

    MMA fans are some of the most entitled, wussiest, unappreciative, and ungrateful bunch I have ever seen.

    Yesterday's main event was amazing. I don't get the massive amounts of bitching. I really don't.

    I was on the edge of my seat for the whole fifteen minutes. Top level striking, and goddamn, did Anderson prove everyone wrong and hang in there with the young lion.

    False, yesterday's main event was awful. It was so bad I had to get up this morning and find out who won, because I went to bed after the second. All flash no fury, but there one thing I take away from it and that is Adesanya won't have anything to offer the higher he goes.

    He’s probably of Mongolian or Tibetan descent.
