Saw Highlights..they said they were:>



Pretty much same **** as anderson fight if the openings are blatantly obvious hes not that good.
Paulo will destroy him any and every way he wants, he is a younger faster much better striking similarly huge MW.
I do disagree about the hall fight that was quite impressive actually, that was probably best hall has looked in ages he just got smashed by a dude with physical gifts he doesnt have and youth.
Yes Izzy is better than hall but in a gun fight id only give him a speed and tech advantage, hall has stopped impossibly tough guys.
