Israel Adesanya feels MMA has the best athletes in the world.

“The Last Stylebender” was recently a guest on MMA Fighting’s, The MMA Hour. On the show, he talked about Tavares being a stylistically better match-up for him than Vettori. He also stated that he feels MMA athletes are the best in the world. Here’s what he had to say:

We can still do a highlight against Brad and we can still showcase against him, It’s no problem.

Brad, I think is gonna be easier than my last opponent, just because I’ve seen that style so many times, I’ve read that stuff so many times. That’s nothing to me. My last opponent, Marvin Vettori, was an awkward, weird southpaw and I was able to read things on the fly with him. Brad, I’ve seen that style many, many times, so it’s going to be easier to read this book.

Look at Brad, the way he’s fought, his last fight was his first finish in seven years. His chin isn’t as durable as Marvin. I don’t like to say things like that, because no one has a chin. Everyone has a button, it’s just how you can find that button. His button, his style with his stance, is easier to find than Marvin’s button.

I’ll give it less than three rounds. Less than three rounds. The way he likes to throw, he’s from Hawaii. He’s a heavy guy when he throws. He’s a scrapper. So, we could scrap.

It’s hard to keep feeding me guys that aren’t in the same kind of echelon as me, which I don’t really feel like there is yet, Brad is a good fight, good test. It’ll be my toughest test to date. I’ll get past him and move forward.

I feel like MMA athletes are the best athletes in the world. The amount of work we have to do to get to that Octagon, we should be getting paid what we’re worth. Some of these football players are getting paid f*cking hundreds of thousands a week. That’s because football has been around for years. Basketball players or gridiron players. And they can’t do what we do. … It would be nice if the pie was shared evenly across the field.
