Nigerian-born mixed martial artist, Israel ‘The Last Stylebender’ Adesanya has accepted that his next opponent at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the greatest fighter of all time but it won’t deter him from his title dreams as he has been eating GOAT meat since his younger days in Nigeria.
The 29 year-old Adesanya will meet Anderson Silva on the 43 year-old MMA middleweight legend’s long-awaited return to the Octagon at UFC 234 Melbourne, Australia on February 9.
Adesanya, during a recent interview with UFC said: “Anderson Silva is one of the greatest if not the greatest of all time,
“For me, I didn’t want to (fight him) at first. I was on record saying there is no need.
“But I had to do it, I had this dream. I talked to my coaches and said, ‘Yeah, this is how it is supposed to play out.’ The guy is the GOAT. But I am Nigerian and I have been beating eating goat since I was a kid. This is normal to me.”
Adesanya, who is based in New Zealand, made his UFC debut in February and remains undefeated in four fights. He is also undefeated in 15 fights as a mixed martial artist and is ranked sixth in the UFC middleweight division.
43 year-old Brazilian Anderson Silva is a former UFC middleweight champion and had the longest title reign in UFC history at 2,457 days. This started in 2006 and ended in 2013 and included a UFC record 16 consecutive victories in that span.
