Israel Adesanya joins Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show in studio to talk about his experience in the crowd at UFC 244 including scanning Darren Till (22:45) and how well Till fought vs. Kelvin Gastelum. Adesanya then talks about wanting to fight in February or March and wishes to clean out his weight class. But says he’d let Jon Jones (30:01) skip the line if he wants to take a fight at 185. Helwani and Adesanya then recap the main event of UFC 244 between Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, a fight that ended via a doctor’s stoppage due to a cut Diaz sustained. Adesanya maintains that the tide was turning for Diaz when the fight was called off. Lastly he (40:33) talks about his relationship with Conor McGregor.
