Dr Disrespect gives his verdict on the Israel Adesanya vs Paulo Costa match at UFC 253

Dr Disrespect tweeted saying, “Adesanya is 6’4”, thin, athletic. Costa is barely 6’, bulky, thick ankles. Easy decision.”
This was probably him referring to his motto of ‘Violence, Speed, Momentum’, and Adesanya is the living embodiment of these traits. But that wasn’t all, for Doc also gave the fans a round-by round-analysis of the bout. Take a look at it below.

First round @ufc review:

Adesanya in another league. He’s as if a basketball player did kickboxing as a full time hobby.

Surprisingly, no matter how vague this sounds, it holds true for Adesanya. He is fast, clinical, and an amazing counter-striker, which makes him one of the best in the world.
Doc did not stop there as he also made a prediction.
“Adesanya will go down as the best ever when he retires IF he takes fights at a solid, consistent volume. 30-0 minimum.”
The rate at which Adesanya is progressing, this seems an achievable target for the New Zealander.
