    It's quite simple - Adesanya wants to do both MMA and kickboxing apparently, and as we know, he can't do that if he's under UFC contract. He'd have to commit fully to MMA and take a few years off kickboxing but I think he'll sign with the UFC (or more likely, given the crossover, Bellator), next ear.

    crazy how far downhill Melvin Guillard has gone...

    he was like a LW Drew McFedries- he could crack, but never seemed to improve his grappling skills


    now folks are just making a name off him

    You seen his title fight for Glory vs Wilnis? Arguably won it, so wouldnt say hes struggling in his A sport at all. Murks MVP as well.

    He stuck his tongue out at one of his opponents. I think he can manage the showmanship part.

    Can he wrestle? If he can't, then that's your answer.

    Sorry, my sarcasm meter was off and it wouldn't even be close to the most outlandish claims on Sherdog lol

    Agree on the title fight. I think he is exactly the same as MVP. Spending a little too long in the basement. The got MVP at top 5, but I don't think he really is and I like the guy, we're from the same country.

    Thanks for this, never heard of him before.

    50-5 in kickboxing, last two fight were L's so he was 50-3 very recently, impressive as hell. 10-0 mma all KOs love those types of dudes.

    However I wouldn't hold my breath if he came into the UFC. No matter how good you are outside of the UFC, it doesn't matter until you actually get there. He could go 0-3 in the UFC just as easily as 3-0.
