    Yesss!

    Lol

    Dudes a giant in there, clearly the bigger man against Izzy and still gets put to sleep.

    Izzy the superior fighter.

    I was hoping Israel would get pounded.

    I would still pick Pereira in a rematch if it happens. He is the better fighter imo.

    How? Izzy playing possum was a last resort for him since his leg was just that ****ed up. Did you see his reaction to the last few leg kicks Pereira landed? He wouldn't have made it past round 3

    Man,

    Perreira just can't hold any kind of shot.

    He really made a rookie mistake here and paid the ultimate price.

    I feel bad for him. He should have waited one more rd before going on an all out attack.

    Now we have to listen to Adesanya for the next 2 years non stop.

    Perreira seemed to have forgot that Izzy had him out on his feet in two of their three previous fight. He went after him like he posed no danger and paid for it.

    Great matchup. Maybe a rubber directly? Who else is there for Izzy to face, except for maybe Chimaev?

    Hardly the superior fighter if you lose two and get laid out in both of them and get it right FOURTH TIME AROUND.

    Pereira will always be Izzy’s daddy. Izzy can only win with Hail Mary flukes. He doesn’t want the rubber match because he knows he has no answer for the low kicks.

    I'm not quite sure they did. I mean the commentary was overstating many of the kicks and Izzy starts doing his flips a few seconds after the KO

    The best part of Izzy winning, besides obviously the mental fortitude to come back and stop someone who had stopped you in the previous two fights, is the amount of cope I've been seeing across several platforms lol. I knew guys were triggered by him but didn't realize the extent of it.

    Izzy on his own channel was talking about it saying his other leg was the one that was hurting more. The lead left leg kicks weren't too bad.
    Whether that's true or not we don't know. When you slow it down you can defo see him waiting and looking for that opening as he attacked.

    I think it did hurt but not the extent that he showed.
