    Anderson could have won that fight.
    Israel has had one good fight in the UFC (versus Brunson) and Honda/MM/Cyborg brigade making him out to be the GOAT.

    As already mentioned fed this punk to Jacare or Soldier of God or even The Chris.

    Jesus, it was so embarrassing.

    Silva was a muppet and barely tried, the guy is getting outstriked and still makes jokes, clearly there just for the paycheck. It felt like one of the diaz brothers, give some show, be a punching bag and run away with the money.

    Fighters should be punished for not even trying, i feel bad for the people who paid mainly to watch this fight.

    What a waste of time.

    Disappointed in how Silva came out and fought in the third. If he pressed the Gas tank and had gone for it, who is to say that he does not catch Israel with something and beat him. Israel does not deserve a title shot yet. He should face Jacare next (the original plan for January) or even Weidman. Rebook Gastelum vs. Whittaker for April/May.

    The Aussie crowd appreciated the fight. {<shrug}


    I did, too, actually.

    But Silva is 43 years old.

    i think he was trying but "aging" is an opponent that can never be defeated.

    The Silva of 10-15 years ago would've wiped the floor with him.

    Anyway, I was entertained by the fight and for that, at least, I have no regrets. <BC1>

    So because you decided to go to sleep, the fight was awful.

    Good thing you don't speak for all of us or something.... {<diva}

    That was an entertaining fight! Anderson showed again why he's one of the greatest. Excellent win for Adesanya!

    He’s from Portland, Oregon. That should properly explain the hair.

    Fabiano is his head coach and his head is yuge. The kids a killer and always looks great in the gym. He’s a strong wrestler and super dynamic and explosive.

    Can't help but walk away unimpressed by Israel. It felt more "hesitant" than "tactical" to me.

    Yes, it was an awful fight. I speak for all of us when I say we're all worse off for it.
