    A lot of people think Izzy will move up to 205. But why is nobody rooting for Usman moving up and fight Izzy. Its way more interesting imo, especially now Jon Jones is moving up to HW. Would it be an interesting fight?

    This and they are really tight. They've expressed that they would never fight. Besides Usman seems pretty comfortable at 170. Several bigger guys would light him up at 185 besides Israel.

    Usman doesn't have the skill set to corner and pressure Adesanya imo, Adesanya can easily keep Usman at distance, Adesanya is not Masvidal. To beat Adesanya with wrestling, you need someone like who has similar to Khabib's skill set + a slightly bigger size; Khamzat could be that guy.

    Nice try but the Nigerian mafia would never fight each other

    It's interesting that Adesanya uses New Zealand flag instead of Nigeria.

    He uses both. But New Zealand is where he became a man and discovered martial arts. His trainers, coach, and team are all New Zealand based.

    It's a Nigerian thing. Why have one Nigerian Champ when you can have two?
