            Israel hasn't fought anyone yet. I doubt he could beat Rockhold or Weidman or Gastelum or Whittaker. I think Silva will beat him also. Israel hasn't faced a top notch striker. Brunson is his toughest

                                Whittaker is bad man he beat romero TWICE

                                  Whittaker is in a shitty situation

                                  He is a paper champion through no fault of his own. He didn’t beat the previous champion. Bisping won the belt and didn’t defend against the top contenders then lost it to GSP, who then never defended the title.

                                  Whittaker beat Romero for the title and then won the rematch by questionable decision against Romero, where he missed weight. Whittaker hasn’t had the opportunity to fight any of the former champions like Weidman, Rockhold, Anderson, Bisping or even GSP, so he hasn’t had the opportunity to beat the kind of guys who will give him the name recognition that a champion wants.

                                    If Robert wins Id like to see him fight Israel next, which is kind of a thing because I want Anderson to beat Israel but..and I want Kelvin to fight Yoel next. Im not that excited about Yoel vs whoever that "dime peice" brazillian is they insist on making but Yoel should make short work of that asshole anyway.

                                      I like Robert. I figure he will winand I kinda want him to but I wouldnt be surprised if Kelvin pulled it off. Even by ko or some type of stoppage.

                                              I am a Yoel Fan.. and a big Robert Whittaker Fan.. Robert beat him the first fight, and looked like a draw to me for the second fight. But what I dont like is Yoel has the same Manager as CHEATER PED USER JON JUICE TO THE GILLS CYCLE OFF AND MASK AGENT JONES. Thats what I dont like.

                                                        Robert Whittaker reminds me of Maximus Decimus Meridius, the way he fought on ,and was still landing that left with that broken hand against a steroided up monster like Romero..

                                                                                He messed you up so badly you haven’t been healthy enough to fight since.
