            If Israel is so smart and said what he said, then let's hear the Answer from you! Why do they booh you ?, And don't generalize it - a little help, If someone needs to speak out loud to millions of MMA fans or just ordinary people that he's not dumb- You got a problem with yourself (a psychological one or more).

              Anderson Silva is the oldest person & the 1st person over 40 years of age to punch Israel in the face, more than once... LOL... Makes a good 'Jeopardy' trivia question.

                              The only thing that could've made the fight better was 2 more rounds.

                                Israel is a great kickboxer no doubt. I think this fight showed us though that he may not be ready for the next level of MMA. Anderson Silva is old and washed up. Most top tier fighters would have put Silva away. No chance it would go to decision - and a very close decision at that. I doubt Israel will be the champ, he is pretty good though. Prove me wrong Israel!

                                                    Izzy is going to be around for along time, get use to it the man is a legend in the making. Don't be surprised if he continues to be undefeated in #UFC. If you notice the fighter's of today are on a different level athletically, difference with izzy is he studies a lot more than the normal fighter. He doesn't rely on just his athleticism.

He has also been the most active middleweight in the division( 5 fights in 14 months), everyone else has either fought maybe once or has been injured. The guy comes to work( no matter what the opponent) and puts on a show with outstanding technical striking and great takedown defense. He deserves a title shot now.

                                                                              • M3l4nin P4r7icl3

In my view that fight should have been a draw. Yet you act as you totally dominated the fight, when actually you didn't even come close to do so. Dude you are a 29 year old man in his prime, but I didn't see you showing anything special, except the speed advantage you had over the 43 year old man that you fought against.

There is a difference between being confident and being delusional.

Great he won yet it wasn't in any amazing dominate fashion. Also the crowd booed him because the moron decided to say that he showed up for work. He doesn't deserve to go ahead of Kelvin just because he gets more PLclip videos. Now he is sitting back asking for more $. Not trying to be negative but he has clearly been put on the fast track by the UFC and he is believing his own hype. In what universe does this guy deserve to suddenly be put in front of Kelvin.

Kelvin now has to wait a little longer for his title shot and so does Israel. Nothing changes. Probably just have Kelvin fight Israel for a BS interim in a couple months. Kelvin is healthy and ready and israel doesnt look damaged. Maybe event have them fight ufc 235. If rob gets injured again for some reason then of them are the champs
