A lot of people has been calling Israel Adesanya the new Jon Jones.
Ahead of his #UFC239, in a ESPN interview Jones had this to say about Adesanya.
“Israel is light in the ass. He’s light. He’s skinny. I put my hands on him, I’ll teach him a whole different world of hurt. For him to be so frail and to not have a ground game? Bro, you don’t want to do it. Then to talk about my standup against Anthony Smith with his face all bubbled up against a short wrestler that just did that to him? It was just hilarious. I barely get touched when I fight. For Israel, to talk about his striking skills being so much further than mine, it’s hilarious. Just to sum up: He’s a little too light in the ass. He needs to eat a little more jerk chicken come the holidays.”
