LFG!!!! Finally a f*ght that Izzy can't put us all to sleep by just running and dancing around the cage for 5 rds again without any intention of looking for a finish (that's why Silva is my GOAT, and GOAT of MW). With Alex you can throw that all out the window, he's going to have to stand in the pocket and trade. I wouldn't be surprised if he turns Izzy into a wrestler all the sudden. I love Izzy even though he's been putting me to sleep the majority of his last 5/6 f*ghts, if not all. I got Poatan in this one going 3-0 vs him. He slept him with boxing gloves in GLORY, now he's going to be wearing 4 ounce gloves which is WAY lighter and he was sleeping legit Kickboxers left and right including Izzy in GLORY. He held the MW and Light Heavyweight titles simultaneously for a reason, and he lives up to his name, translated to "Stone Hand". This will be very interesting, I can't fu*king wait!!!!



They never fought in Glory.

Alex was arguably getting outstruck in both f*ghts.

Southpaw straight is Izzy's kyrptonite and why he had a more of a struggle vs gastlelum than expected (styles make f*ghts)

My bad I meant Glory of f*ghters. The first f*ght was very close and could've went either way but I agree he was def losing the second for sure before he knocked out Izzy. Like you said though, he's Izzy's kryptonite being a southpaw, and his left hook is lethal sleeping numerous other top Kickboxers during his time. All that he was winning the f*ght until he got slept excuse doesn't fly as a base to stand on fam, let's be real. I've rarely heard that excuse used for anyone else more than Izzy vs Alex, and that includes any blood sport (UFC, Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing). He lost twice, and and one of them was a brutal KO putting him to sleep, end of story.

Talking about GLORY, Alex was a WAY superior f*ghter in GLORY and it's not even close, his resume speaks for itself being the simultaneous MW and LHW champ at the same time. Both of them got a lot better since their first 2 f*ghts. Izzy was only 2-2 and GLORY before he turned to MMA and arguably some say didn't want no more parts in the rise and reign of Alex during that time in GLORY. He made the smart long term career choice, turning to MMA. A very interesting fact is they had 2 mutual f*ghters that they both fought in GLORY which Izzy won by Split Decision (Yousri), and lost by Unanimous Decision (Wilnis). In comparison, Alex lost to both by UD in his early GLORY career to avenge both losses by KO'ing Yousri twice then Wilnis once after those losses. Alex's GLORY career was legendary and he was sleeping a lot of his opps. Finishing Kickboxers at the highest level is easier said than done. Izzy didn't even have 1 finish in GLORY, he either won or lost by decision going 2-2. This 3rd f*ght will be very interesting, with both f*ghters improving drastrically since they first fought their 2 f*ghts. Either Izzy will cruise to a decision or he'll get slept again if he gets caught with that left.

This is going to have action unlike Izzy last couple of f*ghts.
Hoping so…..but……

I think Izzy runs/back pedals the ENTIRE f*ght, all 5 rounds….. he’s going to promise “violence this, dominate that”, then when the f*ght comes he’s going to f*ght defensive as fukk guarantee it

What's the odds on izzy going with a wrestling gameplan? I know he been practicing grappling with how long he's been in the ufc, and pereira might be the only dude at middleweight he could actually take down

overall im with you here, but the only thing ill say is that the standing 8 count that alex had before the KO, woulda been a TKO in MMA, so there is some value to people using that reasoning in this specific situation

It's arguable Izzy got robbed vs Wilnis. I know of both guys including fought in WLF myself for a cup of coffee. Alex did have a good run in GLORY but GLORY has been on deaths doorstep since 2016 bout when Izzy and them moved over to MMA. The US expansion was a big failure for Golden Glory internationally. It's why most of the roster moved immediately to ONE or started transitions to MMA.

Don't be shocked if Izzy sleeps Alex either. He's there too be hit which is what people aren't realizing from him f*ghting these below average strikers in MMA etc. He will bring pressure and there will be openings.
