Young blood. Do NOT do things like this.
Remember when Brandon Vera said he was going to win the heavyweight and then light heavyweight championship? Probably not. He called out Chuck Liddell in that same post fight interview. The cheek of him. Needless to say NONE of that happened.
Middleweight Israel Adesanya reminds some fans of young Brandon Vera. Lots of hype and a promising future but yet to face top level talent when he starts calling the big dogs out.
It didn’t take long after beating over 40 former GOAT Anderson Silva to tout himself as being a part of the elite level fighters in the company. He made the mistake of taking aim at arguably the current GOAT light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. Jon wasted no time in putting Israel back in his place.
Dang, Jon. Ouch.
Adesanya takes on Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title at UFC 236 tomorrow night.
