Anders speaks on the riddle that is Israel Adesanya:

“I would say obviously wrestling but he’s not a natural wrestler or comes from wrestling. You watch all his fights, he likes to blitz so I would imagine that would be his game plan.

“I think that Adesanya is really hard to [defeat] in a point fight. I expect him to try to land big shots and put Adesanya away.”
