Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping is full of praise for the current UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Bisping has been impressed by Adesnaya’s personality.

Bisping says that Adesanya has all the qualities necessary to become a superstar. He said that he likes the way Adesanya fights inside the cage and is equally impressed with his abilities on the mic.

Israel Adesanya, Jon Jones and Michael Bisping

Speaking on Submission Radio, Bisping says that he is confident about Adesanya becoming a superstar.

Izzy’s outstanding,” Bisping began. “He’s great, undefeated, which is very marketable. He looks good, he talks good, he fights good. The guy’s a superstar. He’s got all the qualities that the UFC are looking for in a superstar, and he fights great.

Israel Adesanya would have equal footing against Jon Jones

Bisping is so impressed by Adesanya that he even thinks that he will do good against UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

Listen, on the feet they’d match up pretty well,” Bisping said. “I can’t see why Israel wouldn’t have at least an equal footing or potentially an advantage. Jones isn’t… I mean, we saw in his last few fights he’s not invincible, he’s not superhuman, he is beatable. Everybody’s beatable, trust me. And Jon, the longer he does it, the longer he goes, it’s kind of a game of odds. At some point someone’s going to beat him, and it seems to be happening more and more. I mean, the fight against Dominick Reyes — and I’m not trying to dump on Jon Jones — I feel that Reyes won that fight. The one before, Thiago Santos, that was a close fight, and Thiago Santos had a bloody blown ACL from round one. The fight before that, Anthony Smith.

Jon isn’t unbeatable, and Adesanya is also undefeated. They’re both pretty undefeated in my eyes. It’s a great fight. I’d love to see it one day, but I’m not sure I would ever see Israel at heavyweight. That’s why i kind of laughed there, cause he’s certainly very tall, but he’s a light middleweight at the end of the day. So, at heavyweight, he’s gonna have a big disadvantage there.” (H/T –
