            the fight was beautiful, and Anderson is still there of course. But honestly Adesanya's performance was nothing so dangerous at any point of the fight. So I think he s going to lose his next fight if it's a title shot

              This guy tries so hard to speak slick but realizes he sounds cringe and he corrects himself with awkward brush overs

                    Israel seem’s like a good guy but has one huge head. The guy needs to humble himself a bit and return to Earth.

                      Why does he not have a shirt on? That looks so awkward a guy in a suit beside him.

                              Let me help this young fighter see the future. O e day u will be a champ, when your a champ do u want to loose your belt because of a medical condition that requires immediate surgery? No! Ok, so think and talk like a smart champion show respect fir the man who has the belt and u will receive that same respect when u are a champ. Bob, has zero chance of loosing his belt for this. Why, because he’s perfect in the ring and out. He’s been fighting world beaters every time he steps into the ring. He has earned everything g he has. Fighting legends was dumb for you why, u will have to ask me later tired of giving free advise, ha ha

                                Isreal actually is a dooche...he is ignorant and bullies his own teammates. Soon as a wrestler grabs him he will fold like a tootsie roll.

                                  I like Adesanya a lot, in fact he's probably my favourite fighter of 2018. However, what hope does he have against guys like Rockhold, Souza, Romero, Whittaker..? Guys who will march forward into the pocket with him, take him down, wrestle him on the ground, etc. He's not like McGregor where he can just KO you with one sweet strike to the chin as you're coming in. We saw that vs Silva. None of his clean strikes to Anderson's chin even rocked him except maybe 1 of them. He's more of an attrition type striker. If Romero can take the type of strikes to the fact that he took vs Whittaker and stay standing, or if Souza can march forward taking shots like he did vs Weidman.. I don't think Adesanya has much of a chance vs those guys. I'd like to be proven wrong though 100%.

                                    So many butthurt in the comments. If he knocked out silva, people will say Silva is washed up and Israel is still a hype train. Takes him to decision, people say no knockout power, just a hype train. Really cant win with all these keyboard warriors.

                                      Man this guy is so cringeworthy. You showed up to work? We know, we heard you say that in every interview you had. Is that supposed to be a little dig at rob? Fuckn loser

                                        AlwaysRetr0 yea well said that’s true isn’t it. It’s like he’s reading off a script every time he speaks. Is he trying to be like Conor?

                                        Nah, he's clearly just quite an awkward guy. He tries to say shit that sounds cool in his head, but comes out sounding weird. Like when in the post fight press conference he was talking about how Rob dropping out in the last couple of hours was like how a girl must feel when a guy cums too quickly. He's just a weird guy. I really don't think he meant to have any kinda dig at Rob.

                                                Who? You think he beats Yoel? If he was taking the type of shots he was taking vs Whittaker and stayed standing (for the most part) I really don't think Adesanya would stand a chance vs him.

                                              He was fading 5 rounds would have benefited Silva. Isreal is a top level striker still

                                                  In his Prime Silva would have absolutely dominated Adesanya, no doubt.
