    I think this is the worst outcome for Izzy. He had everything go right early on and he still got slumped. Even on his worst day Pereira can easily overpower and KO him. If they have another rematch I don’t think he gets out of the 1st round.

    Maybe, but Izzy hurt him badly at the end of the 1st round.

    It was a right hand that hurt him first.

    Izzy has far more talent than Molly though, she`s worse than Rousey was.

    He`s bigger, stronger and braver, Izzy just keeps winning opening rounds and then going into a negative safety first style, couldn`t do it last night against a fighter with the same reach.

    More or less but he needs to improve his fight IQ he gets caught flush too easily and MMA fightes with better ground games than Izzy might beat him.

    Whitaker stands a better chance than Costa as he has a better ground game than Izzy, Costa and Pereira.

    He`d get rocked more by bigger fighters as they punch harder.

    Whittaker is the better wrestler, no arguing that. He is also a superior wrestler to Adesanya to, but he couldn't take him down. Pereira will pose the same problem but with more power. I dont see Costa as much of a threat.

    Different game plan.

    Izzy brings more versatility than WHittaker. He won't be worried about all the crazy kicks and quick angle punches

    That reaction to the punch was from being drained, he lost over 50lbs. He would be better a division up
