The current UFC middleweight champion Israel The Last Stylebender Adesanya was quick to get on Jon Jones’ case after his arrest last month. However, Adesanya has now sort f backtracked on his own comments and has refused to ‘kick a man when he is down’.
Adesanya recently gave an interview to sports media giant, ESPN. He particularly spoke about Jon Jones and his arrest. Here’s what he had to say:
I did put some memes up because you have to give the people what they want, but at the end of the day, there’s some stuff that I said privately to my people that’s not gonna go out. Some stuff that meme-worthy wasn’t really kosher, even for my code. He’s a young black man at the top of his game and he’s throwing it all away. A lot of what DC said, same thing. Like, I felt bad for him when I watched the body cam footage as well. At the end, when he was just sobbing, I felt bad for him. Because I can imagine myself in that position. And I even bet you in the back of the squad car, he’s thinking, ‘F*ck, Israel’s gonna have a lot of material with this one.’ I bet you. I swear to God. But, like I said, a lot of it’s never going to see the light of day because it’s funny for me but at the same time I feel sad to see a young, black, skinny [expletive] who wishes he had the career at the beginning like I am right now, and he’s just throwing it all away. So I’ve taken lessons from watching a guy like him pave the way, if you will, and I won’t repeat the same mistakes. I’ll make my own. Sex tape dropping 2020! Get ready.
Bro, we’re all stuck at home, ‘Ooo, we’re gonna put him on home detention. Oh no’.
