Super Fight Possible?
Will Jon and Izzy face-off in the Octagon? I say no. Well not right now. Jon Jones isn’t taking that fight until Jones grabs the heavyweight belt. And I’ll be honest I don’t think Adesayna really wants to move up to 205. The success rate of fighters moving up to LHW is low. For every Thiago Santos, there’s a Chris Weidman or a Luke Rockhold. So look for Izzy to push for a catchweight 195ish. Which is what makes me doubt this fight happens if at all.
“Biggest Fight In UFC History” is thrown around far too much. But this one has an honest chance. Izzy beats Silvas title defense record at middle weight. This will be the biggest fight to date. No two fighters will have ever held their respected belts for as long as these two. By then Jones will more than likley be Heavyweight Champ.
If You think Jon And Izzy make it to the octagon before the end of the year. Please give me your reasoning. The UFC is making far too much off both of these guys winning.
Keys To Victory
Both fighters need to be their selves. Izzy needs to stick and move. He needs to lean on movement and his outstanding kickboxing. Attack from the outside. While Jones needs to mix it up as usual. There isn’t a person at 205 or heavyweight that can grapple with Jon. If DC couldn’t hold Jon down no one will. My personal take is this fight looks a lot like Jones Vs Rashad Evans. Jones wins via decision.
