Everyone noticing the weird right pec on Adesanya. Watched some highlights. It had always looked a little off, though obviously worse tonight. Never seen gyno develop like that in one side so...not really skeptical
Costa is juiced up to the gills so not really a big deal

I’m a bit underwhelmed by the fight.

Adesanya is the goods and did what I expected him to do. But for all his talk Costa didn’t do much of anything.

He was getting his lead leg kicked apart but didn’t even try to really get his own kicks going or let his hands go and really try force himself inside.

All the talk of taking it to him but then he just let Adesanya move as he pleaded pretty much.

Not a lot who could have done about the KO though. That head kick had him seeing stars then that punch to the side of the head sealed his fate.

hoped for more to be honest

I was expecting Adesanya to win a one-sided fight, I just didn’t expect a stoppage. I thought Costa’s chin would keep him going for 5 rounds.

Adesanya’s definitely special. He made that look easy.

Christ, that bruise from the Blach kick to the ribs, you could actually see the imprints of the toes, and Reyes didn’t even blink. Great performance by Izzy, Costa was fucked after the first round, his leg had been chewed up. In hindsight his only realistic chance was a bulrush job, but that would have most likely ended up with him KO’d aswell. Are there any elite wrestlers who pose a threat to Adesanya?

I definitely got this one wrong. I thought nothing would stop Costa from imposing his will, and yet I am the same person who has been explaining for years why fighters rarely applied effective pressure against Floyd Mayweather.

Adesanya is special alright. I think the fact he often acts like a clown and is incredibly obnoxious and immature, almost lulls his opponents into a false sense of security. They forget he's a killer, until it's too late.

He was asked bout it during the post fight . Just sort of brushed it off and moved on.

Really don't like his personality, seems a right wanker. Even managed to shit on fans who attend fights.

Reyes really got his ass handed to him. No way for him to tell himself that Jan didn't beat him up and knock him out. I see he got on twitter after the fight too.



Gotta give him credit for that.

:hat

Nah the best MW ever gave Adesanya a tough fight when he was already shot to shit. But wow was that an impressive performance by Adesanya tonight.
Adesanya played around a lot in that fight, and was in with his hero.

We'll have to see what happens the next time someone is able to press him the way Gastelum did.

New rankings haven't come out yet.

But as it stands now, of the 15 ranked MW fighters, Izzy has beaten:

1
2
5
7

Getting pretty dominant over the division already.

What exactly did Adesanya say to Costa's trainer? It sounded like he said he would come on him, but I'm not sure the context
Someone from Cost’s corner yelled “We’re still coming for Volk.” And Izzy replied.
“I’ll come all over you.”
Standard schoolyard level banter.
You can tell he is too invested in Social media and it’s affecting him, constantly trying to “prove everyone wrong”.

Nah dickhead we just want to watch you fight.

seems fair.

I like Izzy in that he's an unreal fighter. Great to watch. But his character out of the ring is starting to wear thin for me.

Yeah, same here. I think that character gets more annoying as he keeps winning, too. It’s the same with Conor. When he was a nobody it was fucking brilliant to hear him saying he was going to take Aldo’s head off, especially when he actually went and did it.

Once you’re rich and you’ve proven yourself, you need to wind that attitude in a bit unless you want to come across as a complete bellend.

I was gutted when Aldo lost, especially when Conor was being a massive cunt about his country. I loved it when Khabib raped him when Conor was talking so much shit about Dagestan.

For some reason, Izzy doesn't piss me off as much. He restricts it to his opponent and gave him respect after the fight as well.

Izzy is obviously playing a character on TV, and he seems like a genuinely nice dude. Conor was also playing a character, but he lives out that character, and his drug and alcohol problems present themselves regularly. He also has a very weird little man syndrome.
