Chael Sonnen praises Israel Adesanya’s ‘level of brilliance’,
“There seems to be a chorus even coming from the smart marks in the cheap seats, the guys that are supposed to know,” Sonnen said.
“The guys in the back, fellow fighters, there seems to be this chorus about Adesanya in the way that he’s managing a match – as opposed to trying to finish, that he’s trying to get to the decision.
“I would argue for you that even the smart marks, even the boys in the back, even the fellow fighters, there’s a level of brilliance that Adesanya’s doing that even they don’t understand. I would argue that for you.”
