Honestly I think he beats both, but gets more publicity out of XPOSIN weidman so its a smart move

 

would be dumb to match up izzy and costa this early, let them both be top 5 and fight for a title shot and try to avoid Yoel at all costs

Costa vs Yoel is the fight i want to see eventually...

 

also, despite both being Anzacs, Rob vs Izzy. The two best - at least in a versatile - strikers at MW trying to figure each other out.. I think Rob's too fast though

 

 

and, well.. based on their common opponent...

When there are two young guns coming up I'd much rather they take on a couple of veterans than fight each other.

Weidman's win over Gastelum is all that's keeping him at the top table at the moment.  Given he's not getting that shot, beating an up and comer would probably ensure he gets the next shot.  Good fight to make.

 

`IzGOAT' is a year or two behind Costa IMO.  Definitely looks like a good prospect.  Oz, you already claiming this Nigerian New Zealander as an Aussie??

what do you mean already? He lived in Perth for the best part of the last five years, and I've met the guy three times through a mutual friends involved in the kickboxing circuit over here. He's more Aussie than Tigermod! Edited by Ozpride

also I agree he's a tad behind, but he's 3-0 in 9 months and just took out a ranker. Who's better out of Hall and Tavares?

He's a cool kid, a hell of a lot of swagger because he's so dangerous but overall a funny guy. Bit of a larrikin really. Tight with his mates and proud of his roots - loves banter is a diehard LFC fan!!

Dunno.  Probably Hall.

I have no doubt Costa would be Ngannou levels of tired if he fought someone like Whittaker, Gastelum and Weidman (If he avoids getting insta KO'd) after 1 or 2 rounds.

possibly, depends how good his wrestling is. Hall is much better at movement on the feet than weidman and was able to backpeddle and land jabs. Wiedman is very flatfooted on the feet. If weidman doesn't secure a takedown early each round then i think he gets knocked out rather quickly.

Insta KOd implies as soon as they exchange a KO would occur. Im saying if he doesn't secure at takedown quickly then a KO will eventually occur. Might be instantly might not be, all i know is nobody can eat punches from the Roid Warrior for very long.

Costa is just choosing the fight what would help him climb the division quicker.

 

Adesanya is the real deal. There is no one at the MW division who I can see beating Adesanya at this moment and Im not even kidding.

 

Romero might have a better chance due to this wrestling and athleticism and even that Im not sure.

 

So yeah, Adesanya picks Costa apart and might actually KO him if Costa comes forward trying to bang.

Rob will beat him. Too fast. Speed kills and as much as I like Izzy he's a plodder. Rob's footwork will be Izzy's downfall Edited by Ozpride

No need to stick two young lions together anyway.

 

Middleweight is still a very good division but the top guys are all well established and have been for a while.

 

I hope they do make Costa vs. Weidman and Adesanya vs. Brunson. Those two can meet down the road.

To be fair, Oz claims fighters that have flown over Australia by airplane more than once as Australian.
