Russian kickboxer Vladislav Tuinov believes that Israel Adesanya There was no chance of beating Sean Strickland at UFC 293 in Sydney.
On September 10, Strickland defeated Adesanya by unanimous decision to win the UFC middleweight belt.
— When Strickland invited Adesanya into the wheelhouse, Israel knew there was no chance. We see Adesanya leaving – his hands are down, he’s gone sour, his muscles are as tired as can be, his functionality has failed, his legs have stopped working. Israel will not be able to come in quickly, throw a series of punches, go out and go in again – something it has always been famous for. But I think it was possible to make at least one initial move: try to intervene, if that didn’t work, I broke the distance.
If Adesanya had responded to Strickland by fighting, Shawn would have gotten angry and started swinging indiscriminately. Israel could strike and close the distance, after which Strickland would fly after him further into the control room, where he could strike him clearly and with emphasis. But Adesanya wasn’t ready for combination attacks. He chose the style of a one-punch fight, while Strickland threw more clear and precise punches and led the fight dynamically,” Tuinov said, as quoted by RB Sport.
