Israel Adesanya is the undisputed UFC middleweight champion of the world. He has got there with a lot of personal effort but also has many people that work with him behind the scene away from the show lights and the cameras.
Izzy is currently on the top of the lightweight division and boasts a record of 20-0-0. Undefeated and reigning supreme, he is fresh off an absolutely dominating win over Paulo Costa. He took on and defeated Costa in the second round in his last outing.
After the intense build-up and personal fights that got in the way, Adesanya shut down Costa in tremendous fashion. Before this fight, he fought the scary, Yoel Romero. A fight everyone expected to be explosive and a close contest. But Adesanya took this one as well and made it his own.
Contrary to popular belief, success hasn’t gotten to his head. This win ratio and the success he has received over the years haven’t changed him. He remembers his roots and the men and team that have helped him along the way to make him what he is today.
Adesanya in a recent Twitter post took the time to thank his team, especially the two men that have been with him all the way through. They’ve been a part of his camp from the time he was waiting to go pro to today.
Thanking them, “The Last Stylebender,” wrote, “Man I feel real grateful right now. I get to travel alongside my brothers and get the homie into the big leagues of the UFC. Carlos and Brad were backstage with me at my UFC, now he gets his time to shine. Gratitude is my attitude, always.”
Robert Whittaker, who just took on and defeated Jared Cannonier at the co-main event of UFC 254, will probably fight Adesanya again. Is the rematch a possibility now? Will the now stronger and more dominant Whittaker get his redemption against Adesanya?
