A super match between Israel Adesanya and Jon Jones

As we learned, in an interview with Submission Radio, City Kickboxing leader mentor Eugene Bareman spoke on the growing competition between the two UFC champions. Moreover, he said that his student Adesanya – the fighter who recently dismissed Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 to declare the undisputed middleweight title—that will decide when it is appropriate for he and Jones to clash inside the Octagon.

Next, Adesanya advanced to 18-0 with his second-round knockout of Whittaker, and 7-0 inside the Octagon. He debuted in the UFC in February of 2018 and started feuding publicly with Jones earlier this year. And, recently said that he’ll finally challenge Jones after defending his newly gained belt, with Costa the leading competitor to be his first challenger.

On the other hand, the two center-backs exchanged verbal blows and delivered unbeaten records in a title fight. Costa has also worked his way to the front of the line, winning all of his five UFC matches so far. In addition, recently winning a decision against longtime contender Yoel Romero. Besides Costa’s position, Bareman also likes him to be more competitive than Jones because of the problems he has with Jones.

The Jones dispute and Bareman’s problem

Jones’s disputes with the law are clearly established. It included a hit and run in April 2015. Therefore, it led to the end of his first heavyweight championship when UFC stripped his title. What’s more, more recently, the battery allegedly originated from an incident at a striptease club last July. On the contrary, those types of risks are what Bareman earns from his warriors, including Adesanya. And, he mentioned that his team and the Jones Jones team seem to handle everything differently.
