    He tried, but Izzy didn't give him any opportunities, he wasn't going to do a takedown from a long distance. He literally couldn't close the distance.

    "I'm just gonna lie down right here."

    Apparently this applies to both the OP and your gif.

    Bad decision. He ended up getting raped instead.

    Its like the old school video games. His takedown rating is so high it crossed the threshold and became negative. I laughed :D

    I was waaaay too optimistic about Costa's chances in his fight with Adesanya. Dude looked like he didn't belong in there with Israel.

    Now I just have to hope Jan knocks Israel out.

    This, Izzy talks about how much movement matters when seeing a takedown coming and avoiding it. Will see if his evasive movsment and bjj will work against the grapplers of lhw.

    Not enough gas in his tank and not enough confidence in his ground game to get a submission
