    Good leg kick display by Israel but GOAT Silva would have head kicked this Italian dream into oblivion

    Okami had a worse chin but would have been way more effective in the clinch. His grappling is also better than Marvin's

    Martin Vettori cant finish fights even when he connects.
    You can tell this division is empty if that guy made it to championship fight.

    Vettori chin and defense better than Okami. Okami a little more versatile grappler but appreciate seeing similarities both good grinders.

    the hell? Okami is passionate as fook.

    when chael beat him he begged to train with him. sounds pretty passionate to me!

    One thing I would give Marvin credit for in this fight is he was excellent at avoiding the head kicks.

    Prime SIlva would've ended him in one. But also... steroids.

    They say that Yushin was huge for a middleweight.

    No, not so much. There are differences obviously but they are both grinders, well-rounded rather than excellent in any area, with remarkable strenght and serviceable striking from the southpaw stance.

    Only some sheeps say so becaue they heard it to Joe Rogan.

    Okami wasnt huge at all for a middeweight, fought half of his career at WW never missing weight.

    They are very similar, I would say Marvin has a slightly better defence and a slightly more varied offence, while Okami has a better jab and more composure.

    They are similar in styles but Okami is a better grappler and Marvin is stronger and more durable.

    the only thing vettori should be training is wrestling for now on. That's the only chance for him.

    .....and thats the rub in this deplorable division. Vettori's only chance of winning would to possibly fall on his sword while " possibly " securing takedowns and labor Adesanya. Their first fight meant nothing and it's rather funny how many people were giving Vettori a solid shot at beating him.
    Things have changed in 2021 .

    prime okami > vettori.

    I don't think Okami would have stood a cat in hells chance of beating Izzy either tbh.
