While Izzy may be enjoying a well-deserved break, the MMA community is buzzing about what’s next for the Nigeria-born star.
The co-main event of UFC 254 included a middleweight fight. Former champion Robert Whittaker won unanimously against Jared Cannonier. After the fight, UFC President Dana White said he was interested in booking the Adesanya-Whittaker rematch.
Adesanya, on the other hand, may have plans of her own. Rumors have been around since Jan Blachowicz became UFC light heavyweight champion. Even Adesanya’s coach would say they’re interested in moving up to light heavyweight.
Former UFC light and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier spoke to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani to discuss the potential fight.
“It’s not a good look for Izzy” DC said to Ariel: “We love Izzy here, right, we often fall over Israel Adesanya.”
DC fuhr fort, “If he goes up and fights Blachowicz, if he somehow refused to fight Jones, at that point because he said he wanted to take time to get into the weight class, get rid of his split, not a good look. “
Daniel Cormier continues: “That tells me you don’t want to fight the guy.”
Israel Adesanya and his long-standing feud with Jon Jones
“If he [Adesanya] rises to 205 and gets this belt in hand. “ Cormier went on to explain “There’s no getting around him to fight Jon Jones. It’s going to happen because the moment Jones says I want to go to 205, the UFC should almost feel obligated to give him a title shot even though I don’t like the guy. “
Jones and Adesanya have long tried Twitter. However, a fight between the two has never occurred.
“If he [Jones] says I’m back at 205, immediately all competitors, every number one fights, everyone walks out the window and he steps right into the title shot. “
Daniel Cormier continued, “If Adesanya takes hold of this belt, trust me Jones will be back to fight him.”
It’s not about whether Jon Jones and Israel Adesanya face each other, but when. With both superstars at their peak, the UFC would do well to book this “mega fight”.
