I truly hope that if Israel proves to be better than Anderson tonight he does it respectfully.— Yves Edwards (@thugjitsumaster) February 10, 2019
I keep catching myself holding my breath during this fight. Anderson still has that effect on me after all these years. #ufc234— Michael Chiesa (@MikeMav22) February 10, 2019
True story: I was just so pumped watching Silva do that crazy hand work that I tried it myself, and poked myself in the eye! 😂😂— Chas Skelly (@ChasSkelly) February 10, 2019
I want this fight to go on forever, I don't want either guy to lose, I just want to watch forever #UFC234— Leslie Smith (@LeslieSmith_GF) February 10, 2019
Israel Adesanya is clearly the better striker now, but consider this:— Luke Thomas (@lthomasnews) February 10, 2019
Anderson Silva is 43 and made his pro debut in 2000. And yet, another generation is here and title ready and he's still competitive.
That kind of longevity is outrageous. It's frankly unheard of.
Anderson Silva is 43 years old.— The Naked Gambler (@NakedGambling) February 10, 2019
Going blow-for-blow with Israel Adesanya at 43 should probably be worth more GoAT points than GSP's beating of Michael Bisping. No doubt about that.
Israel Adesanya defeats Anderson Silva via unanimous decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) and fans and the sport win big.
