Why do people feel Israel Adesanya is untested?
Since making his debut as a professional from kickboxing, Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya (17-0) has easily made himself a breakout star for the MMA community. He has defeated the likes of Melvin Guillard and has defeated Anderson Silva (34-10-1 NC) and Kelvin Gastelum (15-4-1 NC) in what was to me the greatest fight in UFC history. He has definitely opened the door for himself in MMA but people feel that he is untested. Nevermind the wins over Anderson and Kelvin, but let’s look at the fact that this man went 17 fights without a single loss is impressive enough. This man has been a professional mixed martial artist since 2012 and has reached the biggest stage in MMA without a single loss and is Interim UFC Middleweight Champion.
Israel Adesanya has his true toughest test to date in fellow Australian native and UFC Middleweight Champion Rob Whittaker (20-4). My question to you fans is this, if Rob comes in the octagon and strikes with Izzy and get knocked out is Izzy still untested? If Rob comes in there and lays on Izzy and gets the W by laying on him for five rounds and gets his hand raised is Izzy a bum? What exactly is tested and untested? What was your favorite fighters true test? If Israel Adesanya beats Rob Whittaker, would you like to see a potential fight with Israel and Jon Jones?
