Headlines 13/11/2019

Israel Adesanya's incredible rise to UFC super stardom has been a captivating watch, with the Nigerian-born Kiwi taking less than two years to capture the organisations middleweight title.

Such a meteoric rise is rarely seen in the sport, so naturally, the man would have some good yarns to tell, and that's before you factor in his noted talent on the mic.

And now we get to hear the champ in all his glory in his second appearance on Joe Rogan's podcast, his first coming less than twelve months ago.

The UFC phenom also revealed who his preferred next opponent is, Cuban super-freak Yoel Romero. This comes after Izzy's preferred next-opponent Paulo Costa picked up an injury, sidelining him for an extended period of time.
