    Dan repeatedly stating that Costa is incapable of KOing Izzy with a single punch has me scratching my head. That's just plain silly. If Izzy fights Costa the way he fought Gastelum, he WILL lose. And I dare say it will be a pure KO, not a TKO.

    @Whyte_Blazing_Fyre Make no mistake; Izzy has power too. You can't KO people the way he does without it. And agility is where he shines.

    @Whyte_Blazing_Fyre I stand by all that I said. Izzy didn't fight Costa the same way. And Costa has the power to KO anyone in the division. That said, Izzy put it on him, and left no doubt as to who the better fighter was that night.

    I know he hasn’t been in the UFC for a long time yet but it’s an impressive stat for Costa to have the highest striking rate in UFC history considering how many high volume brawlers there’s been over the years. It doesn’t seem like his style will change anytime soon either so I’d imagine he’ll keep that rate high throughout his career.

    8 inch reach.... 8 fucking inches. Costa is done. His beefy slow arms, not to mention movement, is no match for Adesanya. He literally has to get lucky he lands a good shot that takes him out. That's about as good a chance he has at winning this fight. Skill and attributes, it's Adesanya easily all day long.

    Dan had previously expressed that he felt Costa has no chance and offers nothing in this fight skillwise. Good effort to be less partial here but that resonated and was obvious. He may be right but it undermining Costa's skills and accomplishments at every turn want necessary.

    I think Hardy is Izzy's fanboy and is underestimating Costa's mental game and fighting IQ. Of course Costa knows it's a different fight, and I think he'll b smart enough to know that he can't burn everything on the first few rounds. I'm hoping he'll bring a different pace since it's a 5 round match. Also I don't feel that Izzy has got inside Costa's head that much, neither had Costa on Izzy's head. I'm hoping for a brilliant fight between two great athletes! Hardy is a fanboy though hahaha
