UFC 234 couldn’t give us the promised championship bout however gave us the name who could further fight for the title as undefeated prospect, Israel ‘The Last Stylebender’ Adesanya prevailed. Adesanya defeated one of the greatest of all time in Anderson Silva via a lopsided decision. Former middleweight champion ‘The All-American’ Chris Weidman however wasn’t impressed.


Weidman took to Twitter to have sort of a jab at Adesanya. Weidman believes Adesanya is a ‘bit overrated’, thus indicating a call out. Weidman took to Twitter again to elaborate his previous statement. Weidman definitely believes he can handle Adesanya his first loss. Weidman concluded claiming that Adesanya hasn’t fought a top 5 fighter or a specialist like a wrestler or a BJJ athlete. (via Twitter):

“He wouldn’t have much of a chance against me. Has he fought a top 5 guy yet ? A jitsu guy or top wrestler?”

“Got a lot of Twitter fingers coming at me about saying Israel is a little overrated. Just my opinion. He hasn’t fought 1 top 5 guy. No top wrestler or jitsu guy. Was a -700 fave over Silva??? According to odds after seeing fight showed he was overrated. Close fight”

Meanwhile,  Weidman’s statements obviously didn’t go well with ‘The Last Stylebender’ who replied to Weidman speaking on the MMA Hour.

“I didn’t pay any mind to Chris Weidman (saying) I’m overrated,” Adesanya said. “OK, why, because he beat Silva a little bit more handily than I did? I’m overrated? Interesting. I could say the same thing about him. Heavily. Yeah, When I get this belt in my next fight, they can all line up and they can find out how overrated I am.”
