he got lucky imo. ring rust is real. Rob will back stronger than ever but man Israel is growing on me too. I like his style. Gastelum is a legit beast. He can beat romero and costa imo. gas vs romero or Whittaker next for the title afyer costa gets his shot
He knocked him down, and would have k.o'ed him at the round 1. He then finished him in round two, yeah sure he got lucky
Super lucky in winning most of the exchanges, and making Bobby knuckles look like a barn yard fighter with them lunging punches.
Whittaker was head hunting and underestimated his power. He felt like if he can take yoel' s shots then he shouldn't be concerned about Israel.
I see Whittaker winning the rematch. Whittaker will be back. He isn't done.
Israel vs juice boys will be interesting.
Never said that, but there's no indication that he would absolutely win the rematch. Izzy dismantled him + Whittaker & Yoel took years of each other's life in does fights.
It won't be easy, it's possibly, but Izzy has the edge. I hope he dismantles the the juice head next.
Can people stop riding Nate's nuts now?
Is it set? Last I heard Diaz camp hasnt accepted
Diaz asked for 15m for this fight
I don't dislike Nate (or Nick), and am actually a fan of theirs. But it's clear their heads are no longer in the "game" in a sense that they want to better themselves and close up their holes. Despite beating McGregor, Nate is actually not as good as many people and the UFC hype machine make him out to be. He is a lanky volume puncher who is also great at jiu-jitsu. He really hasn't improved on his wrestling to make himself a more imposing fighter. At this point, he just wants to milk the hype he got from McGregor fights and get big paydays.
The fact of the matter is, McGregor's brash yet clever trashtalk are what people tune in for, not Nate's simple "fuck you motherfucker". I doubt he would get another big payday unless he fights McGregor again. The fact that he is even in consideration for a title fight shows just how fucked the UFC title picture is at the moment.
Fight was about to turn into Nate's favor. Masvidal was exhausted, he was sitting on his stool in tripod position which is the telltale sign of inadequate and labored breathing.
No need for a rematch, but they totally should keep the BMF belt alive.
