Speaking to Joe Rogan after the fight, Israel Adesanya said

‘’ Joe I have had over 100 fights in my life and 80 kickboxing fights. He thinks he ‘s going to come forward and F*** with me. We all know who the baddest mother f***** is.’’

Despite his confidence, it was a sharp contrast to what we saw in the fight. Both fighters hardly engaged in the first round with the Referee issuing a warning.

The only reason Adesanya won was because of the array of kicks landing him points. There was hardly anything to score with very little engagement making it an extremely awkward fight to watch.

With Paulo Costa next in line it surely brings up a heated debate. Yoel Romero vs Paulo Costa represented a completely different fight to what this was. Both fighters engaged and it turned out to be legendary.

Paulo Costa is a  Serious Contender for the belt

‘’The Last Style bender’’ can’t use the same approach against Costa. Adesanya is great under pressure and is extremely accurate but with a hardman like Costa, it simply might not be enough.

Paulo Costa has made a gradual rise to the top and is a serious contender. With the variety of insults being thrown around this surely adds to the hype.
