“I don’t need him. Actually, I’ll say he needs me if he wants to stay relevant,” Adesanya said to ESPN (transcript via MMA Junkie). “Because he’s already done a lot in his legacy which is tainted by other things he’s done outside the ring. But, for right now to stay relevant, to stay current, he needs me.
“He can keep trying. But he’s got someone else to worry about right now this weekend with Dominick Reyes. So he better focus on that rather than focusing on me.”
