    ...Teh Chris. I think he catches Izzy clownin the same way Still My Boy caught The Spider.
    Im a fan of the "flashy, confident striker style", but when a hard workin, blue collar type of guy brings it and suprises everybody, u gotta appreciate the narrative.
    Izzy Lasagnas reign is comin to an end boys!!

    PS Heres hopin Vettoris chin dosent end up like Weidmans though. Yikes.

    Chris Weidman was beating up a bunch of old guys. Relax.

    Who did Martin 'surprise' by grinding out a lay-on victory a flash in the pan prospect on short notice?

    Won't feel the same coz Izzy already just lost, and has a win over Vettori already. And out wrestling a guy like Holland who has weak TDD doesn't make him a great wrestler all of a sudden like Chris is.

    Vettori isn't ready yet. He's 27 and can still improve his striking, submissions etc. Hope he takes some time to work on his overall game before they feed him to Bobby or Izzy.

    lol the last time they fought it was a 3 rounder split decision in which Vettori dominated round 3.

    And people think Adesanya dominates him in a 5 round fight? A guy who has never been finished in his career?

    Damn for a not so great wrestler he sure kept Jacl, Sanchez and Cezar on their feet, beat the shit out of roberson on the ground and just broke the mw td record with over 20 minutes of control time

    I like the Reaper but imo his days as a top guy are numbered. He got Romero'd out of his prime.

    Maybe he dosent have the accolades the chris had, being from Italy and they not having a wrrasslin program like the States. But in the cage, where it counts, the guys grappling has looked very good.

    Weidman was beating Maia and Munoz before he fought for the title neither were old and both were top 7 with Munoz being 3rd.

    While you might be technically right, some context is needed. Half of the guys in the top 10 can take Holland down at will and get 20 minutes of control time in a 5 round fight after seeing what Brunson did.

    Im not saying Vettori isn't a good wrestler, but he is not on Weidmans level for sure.

    In terms of looking like a difficult match up for the champion who is a kickboxing style striker I see the similarly but Isreal doesn't have that style of using taunting to set up striking like Anderson did who played mind games more. Weidman also looked like a worse match up for Anderson than Vettori looks for Isreal.

    And hasnt looked like the dominating guy he once was, for however brief of title reign he had. I admit beating Canon was impressive, but that dude is the posterboy for inconsistent. Vs Till was a dud.
    Lets see how he does vs Costa. If he beats him convincingly, he will make me a believer again
