“There was an air of arrogance in the corner of Israel Adesanya and from Izzy himself”, Bisping declared as he spoke of the fight.

“Even when he was dropped in the first round and was very close to being finished, he had a sort of smug look on his face and there was no concern or worry or realization that he was in there with a real threat”, he further added.

Bisping’s criticism didn’t stop there. He went on to dissect Adesanya’s in-fight tactics, highlighting instances where the former champion was not even putting any pressure on ‘Tarzan’.

“You don’t win fights by backing up. We have seen masterclasses, but you have to have some forward pressure. Dancing away and backtracking all night and not throwing very much is not the recipe to win a fight”, Bisping concluded.
