    UFC debut - Both won by TKO
    Second UFC Fight - Both won by decision
    Third UFC Fight - Both headlined free TV card and won
    Fourth UFC fight - Both won by first round TKO on PPV against top 10 opponent
    Fifth UFC fight - Bit of a gimme for both guys
    Sixth UFC fight - Both won interim title after a hard fought battle

    Conor was way more popular around that time but Israel seems to have taken an eerily similar UFC path as Conor so far. Wonder if we will see a dominant performance for Israel against Whittaker just like Conor’s victory over Aldo.

    As much as Dana wants it and the dummies believe it, he will not have a Cunner run of bullshit, Addy will be gone soon enough.

    Conor was a finishing machine @ FW. There is NO denying in that


    Israel is not, but he's improving. Gastelum is underrated

    He TKO's people, they're still conscience. The only person that went fully out was Aldo...and that was after the ref kneed Aldo stopping the fight lmao.

    I personally find the way he picks people apart and dominates them standing equally as entertaining/impressive

    And he basically finished Gastelum, a different ref and that fight could have been stopped when Kelvin was getting elbowed into the canvas

    Aldo is the only fight on Conor’s UFC record that is an actual KO.

    But Israel was supposed to be some KO artist coming in and seems to be turning into quite the decision queen.
