yeah i thought of Marquez vs Pacquiao 4 as well. I was worried for Alex between rounds when he was almost yelling at his corner and not listening to them. Then he was over aggressive, Izzy played possum like only a great can do, and countered and knocked him out. I was rooting for Alex but that was an amazing KO by Izzy and he is def an all time great.
You got it right! Pereira got played by Izzy ! There was virtually no need for Izzy to cover up like he did! He just did that for pereira to let his guard down and then wham! Game over.
I thought of Austin Vs the rock since that all ufshe is anymore. Gay fake fights
Yeah, Izzy knew the kind of killer finishing instinct Alex has, and totally used it against him by showing signs of weakness and retreat (covering up and cowering against the cage) only to explode with probably the hardest punch he’s thrown in MMA.
It was definitely not just a TKO 😂
@Blazed UPPno the fuck it wasnt, the guy wasnt even moving
If anybody’s calling that a TKO they don’t deserve to ever watch UFC again
It was just a tko 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
in this case its not technical ko it TOTAL KO
This has to be the most satisfying fight for adesanya fans. Everyone was just hating & clowning on him. We all believed he would come out victorious but DAMN, what a statement, and a big fuck you to all the haters.
@Tee Oh agreed my friend.
Couldn’t have said it better myself! I was genuinely concerned about Izzy after his last match with Pereira. I was hoping he wouldn’t let the fact that he had lost to him 3(?) times before, make him lose his killer instincts. I don’t care what other fights happen this year, THIS is the “Fight of The Year” for me!
Izzy taught us a valuable lesson. You can slay your Goliath. Fortify your mind. Believe in yourself. Focus. Win.
FOR REAL! I never even liked MMA, until he came along.
Well lets not forget Khamzat barley makes weight at 175. If he can make 185, that would be an awesome fight for Izzy.
Return of the UFC Mack!! Congrats Isreal I knew you’d get ur power & belt back! I’ve been watching, waiting, & folllowing…Grand job!! 💯❤️🔥🥊🏆
This was not a TKO. He was unconscious
Damn, IZZY just taught me persistency is key. He kept losing to Alex until he finally won.
Lost? Dude your a casual fan alex got
Saved twice fighting izzy by the ref. He techn🎉only beat izzy once.
@Capo Lean what is this even supposed to mean? what did I say that triggered you so bad ?
Great story n example 👏🏽 👌🏽 👍🏽
😂 My man said “winning” against Till and “doing what he did” to Askren💀💀
