    I love Gastellum. But he had the easiest possible road to Whittaker. I think it's crazy that he even got a shot.

        From what I saw on that fight. Almost every fighter Anderson fought is a better striker. Of course adesanya is a better striker than most of silva's previous opponents but he didn't prove it that day.

        A 6'3 wrestler knocked out Silva when he was a lot closer to his prime than he is now and a 6'4 kickboxer went to a boring decision. Weidman fought Silva when silva was 36 years old so still close to his prime. Israel fought a 42year old version that's been out of the game for a while. Maybe he is too much hype.

          +John Hawkes I won't even bother reading your response considering the first sentence was a insult. BTW you use the word ponce the wrong way.

          anderson was just too damn cocky that first fight. he could ve beaten weidman with ease bac then..he had already had him beat mentally in the first fight..after weidman couldnt finish anderson in the first round, anderson knew he had him..he just got extremely reckless and got clipped by a heavy handed guy. weidman hits a lot harder than israel, whos more of a kicker than a puncher. rememebr when Lennox Lewis got knocked out cold against hasim rahman? thats how it felt to me when weidman knocked out anderson..he was wayyy too cocky. im not really counting the 2nd fight between anderson and weidman, that was jsut a freak accident.

        Summary: Anderson Silva is amazing. He is really good and even at 43, he is good. There you go. Also, Israel is a great standup fighter. Thanks Uncle Chael.

          hes still very good yes. when is the last time anderson was truly dominated? i think it was the first fight against chael...lmao. even in the first weidman fight..anderson already had that in the pocket. i rememebr after weidman took him down and dominated the first round..anderson knew weidman couldnt hurt him and knew he had it. he just got extrmely reckless and cocky..and got knocked the fuck out, kinda like Lewis when he fought Rahman the first time. every one else including DC really couldnt do much with anderson. sire DC took him down, controlled the fight..but andderson did a lot more damage to DC when the fight was standing..damn near took him out actually.

                      That was a great breakdown.

                      Never liked Chael as a fighter, but his commentary is top notch.

                          I've never seen Anderson deliberately initiate a takedown and at the same time I've never seen Israel on the ground and actually grappling.

                                      I know it's unlikely but it would be so great to see the spider turn back the hands of time...come out moving his hands and moving his head. Then drops him with a jab

                                                    I don't think it's fair to ask, "how good is Anderson really, when his opponent is just as good of a striker, and will keep it standing?", when in reality, Silva's freaking 43 years old, and had his shin literally snapped in half.

                                                    Would it have been fair to ask around the Hendo/Vitor fights? Of course, but he's trying to gauge the skill levels of a way way way past his best Silva, and in his complete prime, Israel. To me, seems like one of those sneak dissing videos where Chael can then say, "ya see, Silva wasn't shit when he has to face another brilliant striker."

                                                          Silva rips down that facade in the first round.

                                                        I think This will say more about Israel he has fought nothing but mid tier bums including Brunson. He beats Anderson clearly and He’s the real deal.

In comparison to Anderson Silva at the age 29, Israel Adesanya definitely has more experience as a TRUE STRIKER. IN FACT, at the age of 29, across all types of fighting (Boxing, Kickboxing, MMA), in total - The Last Nigerian Prince has been in more fights than Anderson Silva has had in his entire life! Israel is definitely the better striker! and he is younger! If Anderson Silva does not take this to the ground he will get pummeled. Silva needs to take this match to the ground to win, even with that being said, Adesanya's ground game and takedown defense have improved with every match he has had. It will be a very difficult fight for Anderson Silva with his age, his injury history, and because of the level of fighting that Adesanya brings to the table.
