I’m not quite on the stylebender hype train yet. I like Phil but I think it’s insane to say that beating a 43 year old Anderson Silva means he will undoubtably be able to compete with the likes of Robert Whittaker. I think they should put Israel against Weidman or Jacare so he gets experience against the middleweight elite before you throw him to the likes of Whittaker or god forbid Yoel Romero.
