  • Dominic Reyes was dropping bombs on him and he walked right through them. Izzy can’t hit as hard as Dominic Reyes. It’s impossible to predict what is going to happen but I think it will go to later rounds and izzy gets ground and pounded for the loss by tko but jan will be losing on score cards until that happens so izzy has to have insane cardio and unbreakable chin. Also the small cage goes in jans favor and will have a part in his game plan to put pressure

  • Ariel is being a typical slimeball when he tries to get Jan to reveal his game plan, and tries to intimidate him by telling him that Israel has a purple belt in Jiu Jitsu now. He's trying to dissuade Jan from using takedowns. He clearly wants Israel to win. So deceptive.
