    anderson in his prime wouldve whooped him and everyone else, he started losing way after his prime. anderson was a killer and it is crazy people still compare an older anderson to these new ninjas. yeah they are great now but if anderson was in his prime like these new guys, they wouldnt stand a chance against anderson.

        Adesanya while he is younger, is arguably more experienced in with over 60 proffesional kickboxing fights, although anderson is a more experienced mma fighter, we all knew going into the fight it would be a striking match so for this i think israel had more experience leave opinions below

          Age playes a factor we all remember Silva's head movements & reflexes its was crazy back in the days it is slower now that's for sure once u hit 40 u'll realize that

            what we learned is that israel would prolly get killed against any top 5 middleweight

              Bro honestly Silva is too old he’s like the guy on that movie “the wrestler” who refuses to retire.

                if Silva was in his prime, it would have been a career ending confidence crushing embarrassment for adesanya

                    Uriah Hall vs Anderson Silva ?

                      I agree. The man is a legend for sure. I hope he steps down before it's too late don't wanna see him get hurt. Impressive performance.

                        i realy didnt like that the commantator said he should keep his hands up because thats how he lost against weidman. him having his hands down is part of his fighting style and with his fighting style he became one of the best of all time. His style failed him once and now he should change it??? If u are Dominick Cruz u should probably have ur hands up but not if u are anderson silva

                                Look, here's the deal. Anderson Silva didn't do what he always does, he didn't do Thai clinches, knees, front kicks, takedowns or even pull a guard..he had a boxing match with a kickboxer. That wasn't Silva.

                                  I think Isreal showed him to much respect and never really put the hard pressure on him he's put on other guys...looked like he was just out there having fun to me....

                                    It's mainly the Aussies that are hating on Israel, #1 he is representing New Zealand & #2 he's an up and coming challenger for there champ Whittaker. Everyone was disappointed UFC pulled Whittaker out (as if he'd get a hernia the day before Gametime). That's why when they heard the main card was gonna be Adesanya vs Silva they took all there frustrations out on Israel 🤦

                                            Silva needed to retire long ago is what I learned.

                                                    Don't get me wrong, I'm a massive fan of the stylebender.....but I believe the first fighter he faces like Romero or Weidman with a serious wrestling game, the hype train gets derailed.
                                                    Superb fighter for sure, but Romero would throw him around like an empty tracksuit

                                                        I think you can add Joe calzaghe to the list of fighter who went out at the right time too.

                                                              Anderson lost but he didn't get beat

What I saw was a lot of fear on both sides... and therefore a lot of dancing around. Neither fought to win and both fought not to lose... which makes for a boring fight.

Silva could of beat him but Israel is that good and will be the next great. Silva knows it. Silva is the GOAT. None better. But Israel will be better then Silva and hold that belt longer then silva did

Unless of course he's going to get the conor treatment and all of his fights are going to get hand-picked so that he doesn't actually have to fight a good ground person ... Well, until he does and get smashed... to me, the strangest part, is to see such a hype job with brown skin, normally you don't see that and Israel adesanya has black skin, you never see that...
