What has been said?

Israel Adesanya: “Without me, he wouldn’t be here. Without me, he would’ve been exposed a long time ago. I cleared the way.

“I cleared the division, so there was not really anyone else to fight. I cleared the way for him to get to the top.

“It’s personal. This is about me and my legacy.

“This is about re-writing history even though it is history and I never chased this.

“This is about me re-writing a new path in history and just showing people what I can really do, because, again, ya’ll must have forgot.”
