    Smart business decision. His star will never be brighter than it is right now.
    While this is true, we all know that it doesn't matter.
    And not for nothing, throwing around the word "overrated" in the middleweight division could hit any number of fighters. But Izzy has a point. He's healthy. He's showed up to fight. That right there puts him in a better position to contend than half the MW roster.

    Mr. Knucks will be our a bit with that hernia issue. If he still fights Kelvin then Adesanya will be out for awhile.

    No idea. I had hernia surgery. Couldn’t lift shit for quite a while. Now of course he has better doctors and newer techniques but I still wouldn’t think he’d be able to start training hard for a bit.

    So how long until he can fight in your opinion? 6 months?

    I’m just guessing but 6-8 weeks of not training then what 2-3 months for a camp so yeah 6 months. Then if IA waits till they fight it would likely be next year till he fought Kelvin or Robert.

    I don’t think they put him in a title shot yet, he isn’t beating Whittaker and honestly don’t think he beats Weidman either.

    I’d love to see him fight Weidman, I think Izzy makes a fool of him. Chris is very susceptible to being struck these days.

    Dude! you went to a split decision with a 40-year old Jacare and beat a half-blind, fully concussed, 39-year-old that was 2 weeks out of getting choked unconscious.
    Let's not act like you you walked through fire to get where you got.

    Can't say I saw a torch being passed in that Anderson fight; I'd take a hungry The Chris over a high-strung Iz.

    Wouldn't mind seeing Bobby Knuckles stripped - enough's enough, time to get someone to that cage who can walk. Would like to see Kelvin vs. Iz, :popcorn:.

    The torch was not passed. It was dropped on the canvas at the end of the fight.

    I 100% agree with the first part. But the Bobby Knuckles mark in me makes it impossible to admit the second part.

    But damn if Bobby isn't the Cruz of MW.

    Yea at first I was like "strip Whittaker? Wtf" but its true he's been constantly injured.

    I actually think Iz beats Whittaker but Weidman may bring some problems for Iz.

    Right? Weidman won’t see half of the shit Adesanya throws at him.

    What problems does Weidman present that Izzy didn’t already solve against Brunson?
