Glover Teixeira has sent a warning to Israel Adesanya forward of his go to gentle heavyweight to obstacle Jan Blachowicz for the belt.
Whilst Adesanya is a really technical striker, the size variance could be an problem for the middleweight champion. For Teixeira, he also thinks the strain will be a thing “The Past Stylebender” will want to figure out early in get to have good results.
“He’s great and would get to the leading, for confident,” Teixeira mentioned to MMAFighting. “He’s very good as hell, good athlete, good fighter, super-clever, and for sure would get to the prime, but the fat [difference], all the things counts. I know that due to the fact I train with heavyweights, and it’s difficult. The fatigue, the tension is distinct.”
Glover Teixeira is established to headline UFC Vegas 13 this Saturday versus Thiago Santos. It is a really intriguing matchup and lots of believed the winner would get the following title shot. Having said that, with Adesanya moving up that appears unlikely, and will probably need 1 more gain if he receives his hand elevated on Saturday.
Israel Adesanya, meanwhile, is established to struggle Jan Blachowicz sometime in 2021 for the light heavyweight title. The middleweight winner is coming off a dominant second-round TKO about Paulo Costa to defend his title for the next time.
