    He winged a desperation shot with his eyes closed

    That sucks, but lets be honest, they were just going to keep giving Israel rematches until he finally won.

    Eyes were open. Sick counter.

    How? Obviously they gave him a rematch cause they've fought once in the UFC only. UFC doesn't care about their prior history.

    He wasn't playing possum. That's a bunch of BS. He was covering up for dear life and landed a great counter.

    Pereira was always going to have a **** chin cutting that type of weight.

    No Answer? Put Alex to sleep was his answer.

    Although I think if Adesanya wins again, they just might give Pereira another fight because of the prior history and because the fights are good.

    Pereira's chin is kind of glass.

    Alex bouncing Israel's head off of the canvas was featured heavily in the promotion of their last fight, much to Israel's chagrin.

    What he did wasn't an answer. An answer would be to defend the low kicks, which he showed no ability to do.

    This reminds me of Ngannou vs Miocic. Ngannou got careless and got countered nicely by Miocic but Ngannou can take a shot and proceeded to immediately KO Miocic (who himself got careless after the counter). Need to have a chin.

    Guys he didn't even know the punch he landed. There was no though process involved, he just winged a shot before the end came and it luckily paid off for him.

    Showed he didn't need to, i'm no izzy fan but you are carrying on like a blind flog. The 2 shots Izzy landed were on point, not some lucky swings. Alex looked slower and less explosive than previous, he is done at that weight, too much weight drain
    The shots against the cage weren't landing on Izzy's head and was no where close to being finished.
