Israel Adesanya: I Appreciate McGregor And What He’s Done For The Game

At the UFC 271 Media scrum, Israel Adesanya was asked about a tweet Conor McGregor sent out following the announcement of “The Last Stylebender’s” new UFC contract.

I appreciate Conor and what he’s done for the game! Whether you like him or not, he f**king raised the bar for everyone. I look to do the same before I’m done with this game!

Adesanya is riding high on the news that he has signed a lucrative new UFC contract that will lead to him being one of the highest paid athletes in MMA history. Time will tell if he can transcend the sport of mixed martial arts in the same way “The Notorious” has.
