Kayla Harrison Enters UFC, Set To Debut Against Holly Holm At UFC 300

5 months ago By Jhon Woug

After the long wait, Israel Adesanya’s bounce back to the UFC has created a lot of gossip and amazing anticipation. Throughout it all, fans were left buzzing as the Last Stylebender shared some behind-the-scenes training footage from his time in Mexico that harkened Jones’ epic return.

The latest fight Adesanya lost by unanimous decision against Sean Strickland was in September 2023. It was a short-term setback for the former middleweight champion of the UFC. He then went on to allude to the possibility of a long hiatus from MMA and even insinuated that he may not fight again until 2027 when addressed by mediamen. However, Adesanya later on revealed that his break could be shorter than expected and excitedly fought fans about what was in store.

On his YouTube channel, FREESTYLEBENDER, Adesanya gave a glimpse into how he trains in Mexico. The video showcased the focus of Adesanya’s training: boxing skills. Fans watched the video, and their reactions varied; some believed that he had gained extra power, while others were bedazzled by him incorporating these skills in his return to octagon.

The world of MMA is well-versed in comebacks, and Adesanya seems determined to write a tale much like Jon Jones’ triumphant reemergence in the UFC heavyweight division. Comparing these two champions is not unwarranted since Jones made an impressive comeback after a three-year absence.

Social media was abuzz with fans expressing their excitement, including one bold statement declaring that Adesanya’s upcoming fight would be the greatest comeback since Jon Jones. These statements clearly highlight how much anticipation and belief there is in Adesanya’s ability to reclaim UFC gold.

As the training footage of Adesanya was scrutinized by fans, there were varying opinions about his approach. Some commended his commitment to boxing and suggested that he should include grappling offence in his arsenal, while others warned against neglecting his kickboxing expertise. Interestingly enough, parallels were drawn between this situation and Conor McGregor’s shift towards a predominant focus on boxing, which some believe negatively impacted his overall combat abilities.

Adesanya’s quest for redemption triggered conversations around the complexities of combat sports. The tale of a titleholder surpassing obstacles, honing abilities, and rising victorious strikes a chord with viewers everywhere. Adesanya’s resolve to tackle weaknesses head-on and amplify his strengths has undeniably captivated the MMA world.

Newly crowned UFC middleweight champion Dricus du Plessis is looking to enhance the narrative by making a call-out. Having won at UFC 297 on January 20, 2024, the South African fighter quickly challenged Adesanya while provoking an exchange of words with his sharp-witted opponent from Nigeria, who now resides in New Zealand. This has set up the stage for an eventual showdown between them known as ‘Stillknocks’.

Earlier this month, Adesanya shared information about his comeback possibilities in an interview with CombatTV. Despite some remaining injury concerns, the 34-year-old expressed a desire to return to full training by February 2024’s end. Although he didn’t divulge who or when for his next fight, many fans believe that Adesanya may be able to stage a successful comeback later this year.

Adesanya said he may be ready to return by the end of February, but due to his efficient healing process, it could happen earlier than expected. However, he plans on going for rehabilitation and will reassess afterward.

The revelation served to heighten the ongoing storyline, thereby intensifying fans’ anticipation of Adesanya’s reappearance and potential matches. The inclusion of doubt plus Adesanya’s unquestionable charm as well as proficiency all combine to amplify speculation about his prospects in the UFC.

Exclusive footage of Israel Adesanya’s boxing training in Mexico has sparked enthusiasm among MMA fans. The comparisons to Jon Jones’ epic comeback and the wide range of reactions from various fans emphasise the importance of Adesanya’s journey in mixed martial arts. With his return on the horizon, anticipation and speculation regarding his next move continue to grow, promising an exciting chapter in one of the UFC’s most captivating fighters’ ongoing sagas, The Last Stylebender.
