    Adesanya does, but Poirier, for Khabib and UFC, is always second choice to a rematch with the dolly-throwing phone smasher.

    If T-Ferg gets back in time he'll get the Khabib fight. The UFC hype machine is firmly behind Adesanya so he'll likely get Whittaker next

    The comparison is somewhat valid BUT:

    - Izzy never lost to two cans in the process like Conor
    - Izzy's striking is better
    - Izzy's TDD is better
    - Izzy's gas tank is better
    - Izzy's ego is (slightly) smaller
    - even an ancient Silva is better than Siver
    - Kelvin is better than Chad

    Conor was more of a protected hype train and had an easier way up IMO, while Izzy is more legit and still improving. I don't see him plunging into coked up delusion if he wins the belt either.
