UFC shoving Israel down ppl throats. hes not that impressive

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Deleted member 556651, Apr 14, 2019.

  1. The UFC is trying hard as fk to push this guy down our throats but if you take out all the hype talk and look at his fighting abilities, hes pretty average. he had barely beat 50 years old anderson, he has no chin and was knocked down 20 times by someone as tall as his thigh. he has no power, no wrestling and no grappling. hes Darren Till 2.0 barely beat Wonderboy ( a good striker ) and was about to get koed stiff 3 times by a striker half his size. he will get demolished pretty soon. i think the UFC is now basing hype on how someone looks and talk not their fighting abilities.

    The man is a way worse fighter/version of Conor in term of fighting ability but still getting th UFC push. hes fighting guys half his size and hes still having a very hard time while winning mostly decisions. no power no flashy finishes just decisions of boring 50-50 striking matches that becomes exciting due to his opponents going aggressive.

    Doing some anime moves between rounds and after a fight LOL is impressive son. those anime moves are probably more entertaining than his actual performances (his opponents are the ones making the fights exciting). the ufc is trying to push him down people throats like they did Darren Till and Conor before him. out of the three Conor had actual fighting potential.

    very average performance by adesanya imo.


    Conor > Israelx5 and im a conor hater.

    Yeah and if he lost you would be making another shitty thread like this one about him being a can and a hype train right?

    Kelvin was kicking people’s asses until last night. He’s an impressive win

    Izzy vs Whittaker is going to be awesome. I think Reaper wins, but it will be Izzy's chance to truly prove himself.

    He wont get past guys like Yoel, Jacare, Wittaker, and Chris Weidman
     
  9. hes the things you said. once he faces better opposition you will see. the signs are there. his performance wasnt dominant hes suffering big times vs way smaller people or 50 years olds.

    Exciting fighter, took bombs from Gas like a champ, and dropped him in return.

    You seem upset, just tell us the real reason why you hate him.
     
  11. amazing fight but bad performance compared to the amount of hype hes getting.

    all i remember is a lot of posts saying Kelvin was going to destroy him. Kelvin's boxing is too slick.

    Adesanya really shut the haters down with his win last night.

    they all said he only had kicks, he dropped Kelvin multiple times with counter right hands.

    they said he doesn't hit hard, he nearly knocked Kelvin out multiple times.

    they said he can't get into a dog fight, he actually won the dog fight.
     
  16. impressive win but not dominant performance. theyre selling him like the second coming of christ like the destroyer of mountains LOL.

    I picked Kelvin to win last night.
    I was impressed with Isreal I didnt think he could handle the power.

    That's fair. I actually think that's exactly what he needed to fight smarter in the future.
     
  19. all you remember? he was the favorite to win the fight. most people had him winning the fight. at least 60-40 split. glad a guy with 60 kickboxing fights couldnt stop himself from getting knocked down 3 times by an MMA fighter LOL.
