What have they said?

Adesanya: "He’s dumb and he walks forward and he throws shots.

"That’s what makes it really exciting, and that’s what I’m looking forward to. I’m looking forward to this big, inflated ignoramus, running up on me, trying to throw shots as I keep moving and sticking him.

"He’s not scared to walk forward and just throw, and he’s strong.”

Costa: "First of all, I think he’s a counter-striker.

"Everybody here saw when he fought Romero. If one guy doesn’t push him, he will not push out. He stood, the guy came for him.

"So I will try to push him, to bring him to the fight, but if he avoid the fight I will not chase him all the time. I will go back to the middle and cut the angles and try to make the fight happen."
