UFC commentator Jon Anik believes Israel Adesanya has done enough to cement himself as the middleweight GOAT.
On Saturday night, Adesanya avenged his loss against Alex Pereira in spectacular fashion.

Apparently Anik believes that Adesanya’s win cements him as the greatest middleweight off all-time over people like Anderson Silva.
“In my humble opinion, [it] cements Israel Adesanya as one of the greatest of all time,” Anik continued. “There are still people who can argue Anderson Silva as the greatest middleweight champion of all time, and in terms of the title defenses, that is okay.
I sit here in 2023 and not just argue for Adesanya’s case as one of the best pound-for-pound guys right now, I think he’s the greatest middleweight champion of all time based upon the strength of scheduled and based on this win.”
