Chael Sonnen backs Colby Covington’s proposition to fight Israel Adesanya
In the aftermath of the Jorge Masvidal fight, Colby expressed the desire to fight Current Middleweight Champion Israel ‘”The last Stylebender” Adesanya.
Chael Sonnen, an MMA analyst,has expressed his thoughts on why the idea of this fight isn’t outrageous. In a video that Sonnen uploaded to his YouTube channel, he said, “185 pounds needs Colby Covington. There is not a clear number one contender there. We are going to Jared Cannonier but we understand that in the last two fights, Cannonier went 1-1. We understand that in the last two rounds, Cannonier hasn’t won a single one of them. I’m not being a jerk, all I’m trying to do is prove a point that it is not as crystal clear at 185 as it is at 170.”
