    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

              Whittaker will not be able to fight for atleast 3 months with that damn hernia

                  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 🤦

                                                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

                                                            Anderson still has it but he doesn't have the hunger to win anymore.

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.

But Israel will be better then Silva and hold that belt longer then silva did

                                                                                            So no, chale's not going to say anything, chale's not going to call out the fact that Israel hasn't proven himself on the ground even slightly... how can you possibly call him a champion when he can't even fight on the ground??? 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...

                                                                                              Okay so I just clicked play and I'm going through the stupid YouTube commercial... I'm really hoping she'll says that it was a huge disappointment, that if Israel really is The Prodigy that everybody says he is, he should have knocked out an old ass, ring rusted, riddled with problems, Anderson Silva... I'm really hoping that's what I hear, I'm really hoping this isn't just another person overlooking the fact that Anderson should have easily taken this full down and choke him out, didn't even try... That Paulo Costa is going to smash Israel adesanya if he ever gets the chance, but now that Israel beat and obviously old Anderson Silva, he gets a title shot??? It's just insane the way this works and the way that Dana gets to just manipulate everything to his whim. The truth is though, it's the Jews that bought the company, that everybody says they have to make their money back and I guess they have to make the money back in the first year or two, instead of putting on proper fights and following any sort of procedure and weight class and ranking system, it's just turned into this silly clown show and it's such a disappointment when it comes to my favorite sport. I'm sure he's not going to say anything even close to that, but wouldn't it be nice???

He did very well for himself but his reaction time and speed is not at all what it once was. He's just crafty enough to work around that.....for now.
