‘I don’t want to be babied all the way to the top’ – Israel Adesanya
Israel Adesanya, the Middleweight striker is one of the most encouraging hope in the UFC. He is on the way of his third fight insude the Octagon. He is going to be the main event against #8 ranked Brad Tavares.
He told on MMA fighting, ““In the UFC it’s sink or swim and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Fights like this are why I’m happy I didn’t sign earlier in my MMA journey when people were constantly telling me to sign with UFC. The reason why I took my time getting here is because I wanted to be ready to face the best when I got here.”
“People think I just showed up out of nowhere. They don’t know anything about the body of work I’ve put together over the last 10 years; they don’t realize where I’ve been or know about the asses I’ve been kicking all over the world.”
Adesanya vs. Tavares headlines The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale, which takes place on Friday, July 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada. FS1 airs the main card starting at 10 PM ET/7 PM PT.
