    I’m surprised John Morgan didn’t get the first question.

    • Steven Ryan says:

      Rhythmist nobodies really saying the decision was that bad, they are pissed off that Israel bigger up the fight and said I’m gonna demolish this guy and then didn’t engage at all, he wants to be star he has to take risks just like McGregor always has, Conor pushes you forward even if you dangerous and then counters on the backdoor, it seems adesanya wasn’t prepared to force the action or didn’t have the skills to do it

      @That time when McGregor hackysack kicked Buchinger
      And what knowledge you have rather than shiting in comment section. Adesanya is more knowledgeable than you too.

    The girls fought harder tonight

    • ChrisMcloviification says:

      They did however in fairness there like 115 pounds (8stone) so it easier to throw bombs without worrying as much

    • RonaldV Carguy says:

      @John Flanagan thats a pretty stupid comment. Were not living in the 50s anymore eh?

    • Hamza Khan says:

      Well, the girls didn’t pack the power of yoels punch so Izzy had to make it safe. No reason for him to make it a brawl

    • Ry says:

      I’ve always been reluctant to respect women ufc fighters as much as men since they first came in. Tonight changed everything for me. I think it was mostly because I saw 2 beat up women after a 5 round war, while the 2 men in the main event were practically unscathed and displayed ZERO heart. So ya, count me in as a fan of women’s MMA now. I hope Israel and Yoel look at what Joanna and Weili did and feel ashamed for their pathetic performance.

  9. Uyi E says:

    I agree with Dana – Yoel should have brought the fight to Izzy. Yoel missed a golden opportunity, his loss!

    • Eco Geek says:

      @SALITIFY Romero was and is pathetic. And he proved it. Hype: ded.

    • Eco Geek says:

      @arief setiawan lol Romero didn’t even try – so what did Izzy HAVE to do? He took thte lazy win because Romero is trash. So would anyone. Romero threw it away. Get over it. Game over.

    • Eco Geek says:

      @4121Z0N4 casual located

    • Eco Geek says:

      @Franko Cobanov lol undefeated Izzy shows ‘fear’ waiting for old man to DO SOMETHING. Yeah right. Blame pathetic Romero

    • KeAnta says:

      @Callan Richardson dont bring Kelvin into this. He really did take it to Izzy and had he fought the same as he did before the middle of the fourth he could have won. I think his tank ran out but my point is he knew how to fight a longer striker and everyone calls him a wrestler TO THIS DAY lbs. Kelvin went to war with the best striker the UFC has ever seen but ran low on gas in the champ rounds. Everyone else got picked apart. Izzy and Eugene admitted they couldn’t quite figure out how Kelvin kept working his way into the pocket till they watched the tapes after the fight. What Yoel just did was pray for Izzy to get overzealous so he could have his way. Whats the art in that? At least Izzy creates openings instead of relying on chance. Even Silva did that with Wiedman the first time. Praying for a counter while Wiedman kept a tight guard. The difference is(compared to Yoel) Wiedman attacked with his wrestling. He actually commited to offence without relying on his opponents misfortune. Unlike Silva, who acted like Yoel, Izzy took a risks testing what he already knew. Theres not much you can do when your fighting someone that scared of getting countered

    • Cameron Porter says:

    • Catastrophe Cruz says:

      0 0 you’re comparing this fight to Khabibs fights?? MMA isn’t for you bro

  11. ALPHA RED says:

    Yoel literally stood there the entire time trying to show off his salsa moves, and he thought he should have won for doing nothing? He wanted a punching bag in the octagon. He was waiting for one shot knockout and he lost his last chance at the championship. Bizarre!

    • Not Important says:

      i actually agree, and i generally don’t think highly of women…. these 2 were incredible and should get the men’s purse who, btw, should just forfeit their’s to the women (i mean israel/romero)
