Was a fun fight for me, and both those guys.

Wish that flying knee landed though.

It wasn't great, but if you went down the list I'm sure you could find at least 75 worse main events to watch. The 2nd round was fairly entertaining and competitive.

Damn I wont lie, after Whittaker dropped out, I just completely forgot to spend my time to watch the main event. Forgot it was on until I checked on here. Saw the main event went to a decision. How did Israel look? Was it a pretty dominating 3 rounds for him?

This was utter shite. But I won a lot of money as these fights went as I predicted.

He’s one of the more boring fighters on the roster. Also, his reaction towards Goddard (best ref in mma) was totally uncalled for. The stoppage was fine, he got dropped badly just before too.

Not really dominant at all. Silva won the 2nd (IMO, one judge agreed) and even when he faded away in the 3rd Israel didn't do too much. It's hard to judge these emotional, "passing of the torch" fights too harshly though.

Ya we have seen it many times where the young guys struggle against the guys they looked up to. Im very curious on who Israel gets next.

Silva isn’t as explosive to finish like he was when he was younger, and he still has 0 desire to point fight.

I honestly feel like he could have decisioned Israel if he didn’t eat easily avoidable stuff looking for a KO.

Was a competitive fight though, and I think it opened Israel’s eyes some for sure.

Absolutely. A journeyman turtles like that? I legitimately thought he was doing the pride saving, basically-a-submission turtle. Like Dolloway did in that infamous fight. Looked like he wanted out

Also, RAni Yahya looked about as clumsy and unskilled and unathletic as I've ever seen someone look inside the octagon.
