The current UFC middleweight champion Israel THe Last Stylebender Adesanya is one of those fighters who when he is not fighting, still always has something or the other entertaining to say or do even outside the octagon. In a recent interview, Adesanya gave his views on a rather interesting question, i.e. who would he pick in bar room fight.
Adesanya was recently in a conversation with former UFC champ champ’s combat sports media website The Mac Life.com. He was asked 20 rapid fire questions by the reporter. Adesanya revealed the three UFC fighters apart from his own gym members. The Kiwi fighter revealed that he would pick Derrick Lewis because he is a big brawler and would act as a shield for the other three. He also said that he would also pick the UFC’s BMF champion Jorge Masvidal because he has a very extensive street fighting record. He also revealed that he would also choose the former UFC women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas, as she could potentially strangle their opponents into submissions. Here’s what he had to say:
Not members of my gym, ooh Brad was the first one I was otherwise going to go for. Brad Riddell is crazy. Umm f**k who would I pick? I will pick Derrick The Black Beast Lewis. He is a big brawler, just kind of like the shield and then the people behind I’ll pick Jorge Masvidal because he is used to street fights. One more, I would pick a woman. I would pick Rose Namajunas. I think she can roll them into some sh*t and then f**k them up.

Adesanya also recently heavily criticised his fellow middleweight rival Paulo Costa. Here’s what he said, “He beat Yoel in his last fight, he scraped. I didn’t think it was as dominant as it should have been. But I just want to beat everyone in this division that is supposed to be the bad motherfucker.”
