    How would a fight between Pre CTE Weedman go against Izzy?

    Chris said he still believes that if he strings together a few wins he could get a fight with him. I mean I think he could possibly hang with The Angry Italian Vettori since Vettori doesn’t really have power.

    Weidman probably. Pre USADA Chris was one of the best MW's ever and he would have been bad match-up for Israel.

    Weidman by decision via wrestling. Adesanya would absolutely embarrass prime Anderson though like Chris did

    I think Chris from 2012-14 might submit Izzy or win a grapple heavy decision

    Weidman mauls him for 2 rounds then gasses out and gets finished

    Weidman gets it done and probably subs him by arm triangle.

    I think Weedman losses but that doesn't change the fact that he is still my boy.

    Izzy dropped a round and went to a FOTN with a decrepit ancient 44yo Andy who had already broken his leg

    Izzy wins. Great TDD, hard to finish, and fights more technical, safer and smarter than Prime Anderson ever did.

    Izzy toyed with him. He wasn't even trying.

    Adesanya looked bad on the ground against an average 6'2 wrestler in Jan who had a weight advantage.
    He would look bad against a great 6'2 wrestler in Weidman on the ground.
    Weidman's standup was ok back then. I would favor him.
    Too bad he had like 40 injuries since then.

    Kind of disrespectful and tone-deaf to add the "CTE" piece to your comment. That's a very serious condition that many fighters will likely have to deal with.
