UFC 230 is almost upon us, with a week and a half to go before the big pay-per-view event. With around 10 days to go before the event, it appears things are already heating up. In one of the four Middleweight fights of the main card at least, Israel Adesanya has a chilling warning for Derek Brunson ahead of their bout at the pay-per-view.
The UFC Number 9 ranked Middleweight Fighter is set to take on Derek Brunson at UFC 230. Before his fight can arrive, however, he took to Twitter to shoot a warning at Brunson and give him some advice ahead of their fight.
" I want to see his face after that first round, but I don't know if it's going to last that long. When he comes out, he better drop the chin – or I will." – @Stylebender #UFC230 pic.twitter.com/Nh57jLT3cZ

In his tweet, Adesanya said that he wanted to see the condition of Brunson’s face after the first round. He added that he was not sure if the fight would last long enough to allow him the opportunity, however. He warned Brunson saying that when he came out to fight in the Octagon, if he had not dropped his chin, then Adesanya would do it for him.
Adesanya has had a good run in UFC so far, continuing his undefeated streak in MMA. With three wins under his belt, he will look to take out the higher ranked Middleweight fighter and move up the rankings. Brunson is no slouch himself with 12 fights for UFC, but unfortunately for him, four of those ended in defeat.
He might want to keep Adesanya’s advice in mind if he wants to prevent a fifth loss.
