Swick’s take on what style could defeat Adesanya:
“Islam [Makhachev] would maul Adesanya….if they were the same size. If they were the same size and they fought, someone like Islam would be an absolute terror nightmare. He would be double what Jan [Blachowicz] would do to Adesanya. It would be a rough fight.”
Islam Makhachev is a 30 year old male fighter from Russia with 21 pro wins and 1 loss. Makhachev most recently fought Dan Hooker at UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira on Saturday October 30, 2021.
