Marvin Vettori on Israel Adesanya

In a recent interview with The Schmo, Marvin Vettori explained why he thinks Israel Adesanya will continue to lose. “Izzy will lose any fight,” Vettori said, as quoted by “If he comes back, he’s not going to win any fight.

I will tell you this. In the top three or four, he’s not going to win any fight. I don’t think he’s going to beat Khamzat (Chimaev) either. He’s going to get taken down, I think. If he comes back, he’s just going to lose I think.

They’re going to tell me I’m a hater and * , but it’s true. This game is evolving so fast. The grappling level is just evolving, getting higher and higher, and I think he can’t hang. Taking a year off now, it’s a lot.

For sure, I ain’t gonna go anywhere. I’ll be around, and I’ll get that shot before later”. Marvin Vettori is set to fight Brendan Allen on 7th April, a crucial fight for both fighters as the winner will progressively move up the division.
