Israel Adesanya Respond To Kelvin Gastelum’s Statement

Heading into his UFC 236 fight against top contender Kelvin Gastelum, Israel Adesanya had a nine-inch reach as well five inches height advantage. Regardless of that “The Last Stylebender” rocked pretty badly in the round four after a vicious head kick from Gastelum but in the fifth frame, Adesanya went rogue and delivered some damage to Kelvin.

Adesanya’s stock shoot skyrocketed after an impressive win that earned him interim middleweight title.

After the fight, Gastelum was transported to the hospital along with the main event Max Holloway.

Earlier today Gastelum took to Twitter and congratulated Adesanya. Kelvin also said he’s looking forward to crossing paths with “The Last Stylebender.” again.

I left it all out there. @stylebender was the better man last night ! Congratulations to him. I know our paths will cross again! This set back as well as all my other setbacks have made me a better person and mixed martial artist. Im so excited for the future #OnAmission4Gold

Adesanya took notice of Gastelum’s statement and in return issued a classy response.

“It came down to the wire…we both put in on for the culture of fighting. You know me and I know you now, this is the fights movies are made of, that 5th round was some legendary shit. It was only possible cuz I had a man as tough as @KelvinGastelum to dance with. So thank you KG.”

Reportedly Adesanya is set for a title unification bout against Robert Whittaker later this fall in Australia.
