Someone who looks great against journeymen but looks terrible against contenders?
Well something is for sure, Manuwa have legit 1 punch KO power and Israel doesn't, so no..he won't be
It all depends on who he fights. I think he might do better in the 205 division as it's really thin right now. With DC retiring and maybe bones moving to HW. The division only has one real wrestler. He can clean up.
Gus at best.
There are lots of fighters who fit your description. Jimi Manuwa isn't even what you call "the Jimi Manuwa" of the LHW division. OSP, Blachowicz, surely many more. There is no "the Jimi Manuwa" of the division. It's kind of a boring thing to look at anyway. There are many more interesting ways you could compare fighters; their fight styles perhaps? In that regard Jimi and Israel are very different.
I think it’s a fair topic for a thread. Maybe, you should take a break.
It’s tough to say, but I guess we will soon find out. I would love for him to get ktfo by Brunson though.
I haven't seen that much of him. From what I have seen, it hasn't been as impressive as I expected with how much he's talked about on here.
Jimi is a very muscular, brawler boxer with huge power, but not a huge amount of technical skill (comparatively speaking).
Izzy is a very slim, super technical all round striker, without fight ending power.
I personally think that Izzy is more likely to be the Wonderboy if the MW division. He'll probably KO some guys, but often just pick people apart en route to a decision.
Totally different fighters that have nothing in common. Except, you know... they're... very well spoken.
Adesanya has better striking than Manuwa, he has potential to get into the top 5. Maybe even the champion if his takedown defense and grappling continues to improve.
I was thinking that they are both strikers feared because of their proficiency in striking, both cocky and have hype behind them, pick up some great wins against journeymen, (both are black), both look to be champions until some fatal flaws start to show and, in case of Manuwa, start losing against decent opponents.
I think Brunson takes his head off personally.
Manuwa and Israel are both black if that's what you mean. Otherwise, no.
Damn you're a hater. What kid of question is that? Lol
How the fuck is it a fair topic? You must be an asshole if you think that lol.
What if Manuwa moves to MW?
LMFAO, and to answer TS, HELL NAW. Israel is teh neXt Bones in teh MW division
