    I don't know what to think of this Izzy. I was thinking he could be like Money May but I am not sure. He does not know how to talk trash properly. He seems a bit too serious. I just don't know. That is why FM is the best trash talker ever! He does it so effortlessly. Izzy comes off very arrogant when it should not seem that ay. Something somewhere is not right. MMA needs a TBE. A Floyd Mayweather

    Cruz is asking really dumb questions. You guys all fight in a cage. You beat men into unconsciousness. Of course he needs some level of anger or resentment to help justify what he's about to do to them. You start thinking sunshine and flowers and rainbows, you'll get crushed.

    When i watched Israel walking towards the Octagon, he was super calm . kinda weird knowing he was fighting such a Badass in Whitakker. We have'nt even seen his best. He's gonna crack Costas jaw, quick too.

    Great athlete and very talented. But his interviews are cringey. I seen him flapping his gums but not saying much. Kind of dumb and shallow. Has the brain of a 3rd grader.

    If a narcasist tells you hes humble, do you take him at his word?
    All this clown talks about is, "did you see me do blah? I am the best at blah, I am born entertainer, me, I, I, me, i, oh and by the way, I am staying humble.... hahahaha!!!

    There is nothing humble about him. Go watch some of his kickboxing fights, he has always been a showboat. Of course that does not take away from his skills, he just needs to be real about himself.

    Israel's hype seems similar to Conor's hype, good to have the belt but let's hold up to see if he's able to defend it against Yoel and Paulo; before getting in to deep waters with the GOAT...just put a few rubies on that belt before calling yourself the greatest...
