    Forget his ability, skill and MAYBE (charisma) for a second.
    "I have this thing where ìiiiiiiiiii can see if a fighter is hurt and wants a way out ..... " (90% of humans have this gift)
    This man's original portrayed demeanour of respect and humble yet creative destruction is fading ..... the mask is slipping or HAS slipped. The arrogance is begining to seep through his pores. In his head he feels like he's addressing a loyal yet uneducated populace from the spire of some CGI castle on game of thrones. He's basically using body language here at times which is screaming ........... 'I'm so fucking fantastic in every conceivable way I had to share it whilst secretly holding 1.5 pounds of love eggs in my anal passage' ......
    ....... self indulgent hyperbole ........

    ....... his cringe worthy reach at John Jones was embarrassing (DC,JJ,JPS are current goats)
    Use your skills .... not your bullshit and strangled pseudo comedic rhetoric.
    Jones indeed lolololololololololol

    Really enjoy izzy. But all the shit he talked about rob for taking time off and injuries. He has 1 hard fight and hes all like, i need time to recover. Try two back to back fights with romero lol. Hypocrisy. And you know. Your not the champ yet, you cant call for recovery time on an interim title.
    He is such is soo fucking touchy. Dude the only reason rob talks about you is reporters ask him. You have convinced yourself that he wanted Kelvin cause it was easier. He 100% thinks you are an easier fight lol.
