“Kick ass”. UFC middleweight champion names two desirable opponents


Israel Adesanya – about plans

The current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya admitted that he expects to fight with one of the two desired opponents in the near future.

“I want to kick redneck Sean Strickland’s ass. I consider him a good and strong fighter, and I would like to test my strength in a duel with him. Well, and Khamzat Chimaev, if he first succeeds in his weight category. At the moment, the champion there is Leon Edwards, so first Khamzat must fight those who are at the top of their division. So far, Chimaev is doing well, I think in the future he will receive a belt, ”said Adesanya.

As you know, 33-year-old New Zealand fighter of Nigerian origin Israel Adesanya will hold his next fight at the UFC 281 tournament, which will be held on November 12 in New York. Brazilian Alex Pereira will oppose the champion.
