“I don’t know what’s gonna happen. But what we do know is I believe that Adesanya Style Blender is the most technical striker in the division. I think he is the most technical striker Whittaker has ever fought. That said, Whittaker is incredibly diverse. He finds ways to win. He is absolutely one of the best middleweights of all time. It’s one of the greatest middleweight of all time. It’s the most hyped-up middleweight fight of all time. Two of the most skillful guys of all time. We just have to find who is greater.”
Style Blender is 17-0 in his MMA career and he will be considered one of the greatest to ever do it if he gets past Robert Whittaker. Talking about Adesanya’s legacy, Joe Rogan said:
“This is a chance for Style Blender to cement his legacy. He really right now has the opportunity to face one of the greatest middleweight champions ever. And he has a chance to catch him in his prime. If style Blender can beat Whittaker he lives up to the hype. Cause right now the hype is substantial.”
Rogan also implied that in this fight Whittaker might take Adesanya down or the Style Blender can expose some holes in Whittaker’s striking. basically he suggested that anything can happen.
Dana White was also impressed with all the achievements Adesanya has been able to get so far in his short UFC run.
“It’s one of Who the fuck knows fight,” said Rogan to describe the fight in short.
