In the preview of UFC 263, a member of the team Marvin vettori was controversial with Israel Adesanya. This is the leader of Kings MMA, Rafael Cordeiro, who was in the corner of the Italian this Saturday night. Before the Nigerian champion dominated his pupil in the cage, the coach spoke to MMA Fighting and admitted that, for him, the African is not the best of the Midweights.
To get started, Cordeiro He commented: “This is a fight that he has asked for for a long time and I think he has had a great evolution from the first one. Both fighters have changed a lot. Israel It has its merits, but there are many things in its game that we will try to exploit now. The fighters will always try to improve even in a short period of time like three months.
If you had time to fix that or you managed to fix what you think you did wrong, the rematch of Vettori will tell the story. We entered this fight to tell a new story, forgetting what happened in the first one, exploring the qualities of Marvin and knowing that we also have qualities on the other side of the cage. The great challenges are what makes athletes and I see Israel as a great challenge at the moment, ”added the Brazilian.
Smashed the champion
For its part, Raphael He said, ‘But there are other guys in this division who are just as tough or even tougher because they haven’t shown any weakness and they’re hungry. Israel has been in a few battles and showed a lot of holes against Romero, Anderson and Kelvin. He won, yes, but he has shown a lot of holes in his wrestling defense, punches and takedowns, and those are things you have to exploit. We believe that Marvin can be champion on Saturday.
«The only victories by split decision of Adesanya they were against my students. The divided decisions he’s made, the ones that left some doubts, were against Kelvin and Marvin, so he knows that we are going to be hard on him, as we know that he is also strong, and that is what makes things interesting, “he concluded. Rafael Cordeiro, who was confident and nothing went as expected.
