Israel Adesanya has always claimed that he grew up with the idol “The Spider”. The current middleweight champion currently has two title defenses to his name. While the idea is not to break Silva’s record, Adesanya wants to leave a legacy on the lines of the Brazilian fighter.
Israel Adesanya’s presence within the UFC APEX, despite the strict regulations in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, undoubtedly speaks volumes about the treatment he’s receiving from the UFC. Needless to say, he’s one of the greatest fighters out there right now. In addition, his dominance within the octagon has drawn parallels with Anderson Silva’s undisputed reign as middleweight champion back then.
Israel Adesanya grew up as the idol of Anderson Silva
Israel Adesanya and Anderson Silva shared the cage at UFC 234. At that time, Silva had won an impressive unanimous win over Derek Brunson. After an exciting competition that had its moments from both fighters, ‘Izzy’ secured a comfortable unanimous decision victory.
After his victory he said: “We have you with all of our hearts. You’re the man you’ve been doing for a long time. UFC 90, I still remember the DVDs. I’ve been watching you for a long time. “
A dream must come true for Adesanya, who shared the octagon with the former champion. Now he’s right next to the cage for the final dance of ‘The Spider’s’.
Meanwhile, Anderson has stated to Silva that this may not be his last fight. ‘The Spider’ takes on Uriah Hall at the UFC Vegas 12 Main Event. Much would depend on the outcome of the main event, however, as he stated that he might compete outside of the promotion, however this would be his final internal event at the UFC.
