    Guy’s name is Israel “The Style Bender” Adesanya. Just saw a video of him KTFO’ing some poor guy with a question mark kick pop up on instagram and decided to look him up...10-0 MMA record, all knockouts, 65-5 kickboxing. Dude looks legit as fuck


    Also has wins over Guillard and that Song dude who just won in Shanghai yesterday

    This guy supposedly has a poor ground game. He's only blue belt in bjj. Anyone from top 10-15 UFC MW would fry him on the canvas.

    His striking is on point but that's not enough to be competitive in the UFC.

    Not everyone wants to be in the UFC

    Found that out the hard way when they attempted to loot all of KSW's talent for shitty contracts

    He is too active and doesn't want to slow down with that 2-3 fights a year UFC rythm.

    Because mma doesnt have a priper rankings system nor does the ufc have set selection criteria....shit they still prefer to recruit u.s based fighters to save cash on scouting int talent!

    Seems like a smart well spoken kid. There's hundreds of non UFC killers. I'm so used to seeing debut's destroy UFC vets. Can't really assess him until I see his ground game, but I can see him being a Wonder boy type fighter.

    no more glory fights if hes in the UFC. Maybe he likes having both options open,and is content with annihilating scrubs for extra cash in mma while focused on his kickboxing career
