Last month, disappointment gripped the MMA world, after it was revealed that a middleweight title fight between reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costo had been called off.

Top Brazilian contender Costa had to pull out of the fight following a hand injury. Costa underwent surgery on his left bicep in September that will keep him out of action for another eight months.

Israel Adesanya isn't buying Costa's injury claims, says USADA can’t disclose anything yet - Israel

However, the newly crowned the UFC champion Israel Adesanya said during the live broadcast of Ariel Helwani’s MMA show said that he doesn’t believe Costa’s injury claims.

I am going to use the word allegedly because I have my legal team here. But I do have my own suspicions,” Israel said.“I mean you have seen UFC move shows from New York to L.A. before, they have kept information. With how the USADA policy is, you can’t disclose anything until after the trial or whatever.”

But I want to get that one out of the way because everyone thinks he’s dangerous. I think he is a dangerous guy and one that would beat a lot of big names in the sport, and already has,” said Adesanya.
