Most fighters hope their style gets labeled as something that resembles a killer like Jon Jones or strikes comparisons to the legend Anderson Silva, but not ‘Style Bender’ Israel Adesanya. While he may fit the body type and skill set, he’d rather you not disrespect them — or him for that matter — by constructing mental Venn diagrams of him and them. Going into his UFC debut tomorrow, he wants to showcase something completely new. He wants to showcase himself.

 

“Don’t insult [Jon Jones, Anderson Silva or Michael ‘Venom’ Page] or me by comparing us. I know what they’re trying to do, I know what they’re trying to say, but we’re different people. I watched Anderson Silva at UFC 90. I think it was my first pay-per-view I watched of him. Before that I watched some DVDs, but then UFC 90 I watched him live fight Patrick Cote. He used — probably in the first round — 10 different styles and then in the second round used telekinesis to dismantle [Cote’s] knee. I was like, who’s this skinny black guy?”

 

Everybody has this perception you have to be this Arnold Schwarzenegger lookin’ type dude to fight, then this skinny black guy comes and just runs through everyone. And that inspired me. I look up Anderson — still do, for years — but I’m not him. Definitely not. You’re dealing with a different beast. I’m a new age, new breed. I’ve got a different mindset as well.  I learned a lot from those guys — Jon Jones, Conor McGregor, [Muhammad] Ali — from every walk of life, but when you see me in that cage, you’ll see that I’m a new breed.” — Israel Adesanya speaking to Submission Radio.


"All will be well."

actually f*ck it if he wins he should grab the mic from rogan and run his mouth, tell everyone that steven seagull taught him how to do that move, and proclaim he's the new age anderson silva, and call out the winner of rockhold vs roidmero for a title shot.

 

why the hell not? it would make for some comic relief when you already have to pay an extra $5 for this card.

I am a fan, once I seen his decent takedown defense in the last fight I immediately was just like shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit not just another kickboxer who will be destroyed by any ground fighter he fights. He also picks his shots beautifully, does not just rush in to rush a finish, he made Wilkinson just give up, picked him apart piece by piece, he is one I cannot wait to see again

Curious to see who will be the opponent.

 

 

“I’m not sure, I know it might be April from the word I got from Dan. But I don’t mind, short notice if someone falls out, I’m your guy,” he said.

He revealed that the idea of him facing a TUF winner has been batted around, but he forgot the name of the potential opponent that was discussed.

“I don’t know… I think they said he’s an Ultimate Fighter winner...I don’t know. He looks like Fabio, old and wrinkly, but I can’t remember his name. That was one of the names that was mentioned.” 

 

i can't work out who he's talking about lol...the only one i can think of is cezar mutante but he's booked and a stud, maybe brookins but he's no fabio, 

 

stumped
