Israel Adesanya reveals only middleweight UFC fight he wants is Darren Till in UK and says 'get your s*** together'March 3, 2021
ISRAEL ADESANYA is gearing up to fight Jan Blachowicz – but he already has his sights on another UFC star.
The 'Nigerian Nightmare' is moving up from middleweight to heavy to headline UFC 259 in Nevada.
Adesanya is supremely confident of dealing with Blachowicz – and then hopes to set his sights on Brit star Darren Till.
The Liverpool fighter hasn't fought since July last year when he fell to a points loss against Robert Whittaker.
He makes his octagon comeback on April 10 when he takes on Marvin Vettori.
Speaking to ESPN, Adesanya wants Till to 'keep winning' to set up their fight.
The 31-year-old said: "To be honest, none of them except Till [excite]. I hope he keeps winning just so we can have that fight.
"He's just got to win, man. He's got to get his s**t together and keep winning, Till. Come on, Scouser!"
Adesanya has already beaten Till's conqueror with a second-round stoppage.
He has won every one of his 20 fights in UFC, 15 by TKO.

Till's three defeats in his 21 bouts have come in his last four fights.
There is another cage fighter wanting a shot at Adesanya – in a rematch.
Paulo Costa suffered his first-ever professional MMA defeat to the middleweight king at UFC 253 last September.
He has since blamed the defeat on ‘drinking too much wine’.
