What was said?

Israel Adesanya“Without me, he wouldn’t be here. Without me, he would have been unmasked a long time ago. I cleared the way.

“I cleaned out the division so there was really no one else to fight. I paved the way for him to reach the top.

“It’s personal. It’s about me and my legacy.

“It’s about rewriting history even though it’s history and I’ve never pursued that.

“It’s about rewriting a new path in history and showing people what I can really do, because, again, you must have forgotten.”

  • We are live !

    Hello, welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of UFC 281: Adesanya vs Pereira.

    The penultimate pay-per-view event of the year offers a jam-packed menu of New York’s Madison Square Garden.

    Headlining at MSG is the highly anticipated middleweight title fight between champ Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira.

    The duo knows each other well having faced each other twice in kickboxing.

    The dominating 185-pound champion has lost twice to the hard-hitting Brazilian, who knocked him out five years ago.

    So it’s safe to say revenge will be at the forefront of his mind when they step into the octagon in about six hours.
