Next Saturday (26), Paulo Borrachinha and Israel Adesanya will have one of the most anticipated fights in recent years.
Before the fight for UFC 253, on Ilha da Luta, in Abu Dhabi, the two met at the hotel and, contrary to expectations, it was a very cordial meeting, without any provocation, very different from what has been the last few months between the two.
In a press conference this Wednesday, the Brazilian explained the event.
“I was waiting for Adesanya that I know from the interviews, but he was very polite, very calm and that surprised me. I didn’t understand why he changed so much. Either he is a great actor or he is a really nice guy,” he said.
“I don’t like the guy he showed himself to be. I don’t like how disrespectful he was in front of the camera. If when he met me in person, off camera, he was cool, then fine. There is no remorse,” he continued.
For Borrachinha, if this is the “new” or “true” Adesanya, this is how the Brazilian prefers.
“I was also surprised. I don’t know what happened because he changed his personality a lot. Adesanya at the press conference was a very disrespectful guy, showed his finger a lot of times. But what I found was very kind. I I was expecting a different guy. But he came, gave me his hand to shake, asked me how I felt … If he changed, ok! “, he concluded.
