How high can Israel Adesanya ceiling go?

Postby robdogj » Sat Jul 07, 2018 6:05 pm

I will admit, I was impressed w/ Israel Adesanya last night. I did see him fight before, but it seems his ground game has evolved. He ended the fight w/ Brad Tavares on top & attempting a submission before the final bell rang. I didn't see this coming. If this guy is the total package who much higher can he go? G.O.A.T.? I know I am a bit premature but there are a few fight fans calling for Israel Adesanya vs Yoel 'The Soldier of God' Romero. Is it too soon? IMHO if Nate 'The Great' Marquardt or Tim 'The Barbarian' Boetsch should be his next opponents. Discuss!!!!

He did look impressive. I don't think nate or tim come next for him. He should get someone higher ranked than Brad is. He could get a Souza or a Brusnson. I would say Luck or Romo but they are both moving up to LHW. More fun to come.
I'm so fucking high.

The only opponents he should worry about right now are just UFC cords, elevators, saunas and the USADA. Later maybe father time or Jon Jones self destruct syndrome. Dude just called out Uriah Hall, he is getting the belt, Slevin is right about this dude, he is like a prime Darryl Strawberry.

thanks for that tip DC. I didn't realize these two had beef. You know like King Mo says, 'if you have beef, let's have a bbq' xD

I think feeding him some of the older guard guys next is a perfect idea. He's really good and the UFC should promote him pretty well.

I knew he would beat Tavares. Tavares will never reach his full potential. He's always lacked confidence in there when the pressure is on and the eyes are on him. He's probably better in the gym type of guy.

Well Israel and Paulo just won their respective fights. Why not a fight between them?

Adesanya reminds me of Anderson Silva. Only he seems to not be completely loose in the octagon yet. He could work his way up to a title shot. I wouldn't be surprised if he got wrestlefucked either.

Looks like Adesanya wants to shake that image/perception you have of him & Spyda Silva

The spyda is a tall Hawaiian not the goat. And I don't want to see that fight.

Israel will beat Cost and any fighter that gets in his way. He will be champchamp.

hes gotta start finishing fights to get more exposure
Meow was right, Phillip Seymour Hoffman is the GOAT of acting, fighting and being a human in general. Plus he faked his own death and has a massive slong. All hail the GOAT!!

He has a lot of potential, let's see how the lad fares against top competition.

If Andy is really Israel's hero then instead of fighting him maybe he can try to avenge his losses to Condo Waitlist for him.
