He is a great fighter, but he's trying way too hard to be cool. He's trying way too hard to post sick deep quotes. He is obviously been looking at Conor McGregor and trying to copy.

 

It is just not working. You always see when fighters are not themselves and trying too hard. It just doesnt work.

The man is the world champion, and has one of, if not the best attitudes to fighting in the whole UFC.

You're absolutely right, but still feels like a forced persona. But it is something a lot of fighters have when they get shine. It's very rare that fighters stay themselves.

He’s corny for sure but he’s a beast and you can tell he’s passionate. It’s better than being totally bland.

For a professional mma fighter, quite possibly.

Izzy is putting on a persona? Copying Conor? What?

Izzy does win poses from Naruto, did a walk out with his breakdance crew, and speaks Yoruba in his trash talk.

I fail to see how that is copying Conor in any way.

What is the act that you are seeing? He really does love anime and breakdancing, he really is proud of his family and his Nigerian roots, and he has supreme confidence in himself.

You might not like him, but he's his own man, all the way through.

Agree with the nerd part but it is not a forced persona.  He seems very genuinely himself, hence not trying to conceal his nerdy components.

Lol. Coming from a guy in his 30's,trying to make his mma debut, relentlessly spamming the forums all day with troll bullshit and garbage hip hop videos who tries in vain to solicit pics from other posters every opportunity he gets -- i ll take that as a compliment. THANKS CREepy.

Hes 27. Not "about 28". 

 

Still waiting on you to explain what that comment has to do with anything in the first place though. 'Idiot'.

Nerds are engineer types, anime otaku are geeks. Obviously there can be some overlap but Izzy is more of a geek.

And FWIW there are plenty of nerd/geek athletes, he's hardly the first.
