Israel Adesanya Hits Out At Jon Jones And Robert Whittaker

In one of the most eagerly anticipated fights of 2019, Robert Whittaker will defend his UFC middleweight title against the interim champion, Israel Adesanya.

A fight of this magnitude deserves a big venue. And that’s exactly what it’s got. Whittaker vs Adesanya will headline UFC 243, in the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne.

Although Whittaker may not get involved in any trash talk, Adesanya certainly doesn’t mind spicing things up. Not only has the 30 year old been throwing shade Whittaker’s way, ever since the Australian was forced to pull out of his title defence against Kelvin Gastelum, at UFC 234 this past February, he’s also been trading blows with the UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones. So much so, that Jones even offered to help Whittaker prepare for Adesanya.

‘The Last Stylebender’ has now responded to Jones’ offer. Speaking to Submission Radio (as transcribed by The Mac Life), Adesanya said that no one is going to be able to save Whittaker, when they meet.

“Get fucking ISIS. Bring whoever has to help you get ready for this fight, ‘cos they can’t save you. No one can save you. For me, it’s just the people who got me to the dance. The same people who’ve always helped get me ready, get me ready. If I have to bring one new [person in], I bring in someone we can actually use, that we can actually get better with.

“If he thinks Jon Jones is gonna help him, look at Jon Jones’ striking. Are you.. don’t even insult me. Come on, man. Wrestling, yes. Get Jon Jones to help you with your wrestling. F***ing Rob, shoot on me. Please, no one’s got me down and kept me down. You’ve done it to [Yoel] Romero, you might be the one. I advise you to shoot on me. Try keep me down. If not, strike with me, do your little one-one-two and then throw your right high kick. Do your little oblique kick. F***ing hell. What else? He’s good with a left hook, that’s one thing no one ever…f*** it, no one ever makes him check the left hook.

“I’ll give him the blueprint and I’ll still whoop his ass. No one makes him respect the left hook like that. No one ever makes him hesitate with the left hook. F***ing hell. I advise him to shoot, I won’t Jorge Masvidal him, but I advice him to shoot and wrestlef*** me. Come.”

UFC 243 goes down on October 5th, at the Marvel Stadium, in Melbourne, Australia.
