UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has expressed his readiness to face Sean Strickland at the Qudos Bank Arena after he finished his incredibly intense final training session ahead of the fight in Sydney, Australia on Saturday.
Their clash will serve as the headlining matchup of the UFC 293 pay-per-view with the event set to be broadcast live.
Adesanya then performed a few resistance training exercises, mitt work, and grappling drills as well.
Following that, the Nigeria-born fighter said that he’s prepared to perform at UFC 293.
In a recent interview with MMA journalist Aaron Bronsteter, Adesanya said that Strickland reminded him of the “idiots” he grew up with.
Adesanya has often spoken about clashing against bullies in his younger years. On that note, he alluded to Strickland’s history of making controversial socio-political statements and offending others with his behavior.
