Adesanya predicts he’ll fight Jones early 2021
“(Jon Jones) is definitely a boss in that game I want to play against,” Adesanya told the Mac Life. “Raiders Stadium, in Las Vegas, that’s were it’s going to happen. I decided in July, when I was in Vegas.
“The middleweight division is getting stacked right now. Costa, I got to take care of, and a few others. I’m saying 2021… probably early.”
Adesanya, who said in the past that Jones was “great” when USADA wasn’t around, reiterated that he doesn’t think the light heavyweight champion is the same fighter anymore.
“Nah,” Adesanya replied to the interviewer. “I saw him live. When you see someone live, you know. Nah, he’s not the same.”
