Adesanya just a tad bit overrated
— Chris Weidman (@chrisweidman) February 10, 2019
I didn’t pay any mind to Chris Weidman [saying] I’m overrated. OK, why, because he beat Silva a little bit more handily than I did. You know. I’m overrated. Interesting. I could say the same thing about him. Heavily. Yeah, When I get this belt in my next fight, they can all line up and they can find out how overrated I am. And Chris Weidman, that’s his opinion, that’s his opinion, and I don’t have to pay any attention to it. But yeah, overrated, that’s interesting. Hmmm
This scrawny clown @styleblender would not survive for 2 rounds with me. He does not convince me definitely! My focus is total on Romero in April.

Now, what’s his name, little juice monkey, Paula. Paula. My bitch. What did he say again? He said something about I wouldn’t last two rounds with him. See he, Silva, that fight with me and him was just physical chess. Was the highest level of striking. It was just, if you know about footwork, intricacies of footwork, it was beautiful to watch. For a guy like Paula, he’s a walking punching bag, walking punching bag, juiced up, blown up and throws body shots and heavy, heavy, heavy. Bring that ass over here.
Uriah Hall was just jabbing him up. How the f*ck are you going to hit me with those little T-Rex arms. If I’m behind those jabs, the things that I follow up will be much, much different, so, yeah. A guy like that he should just focus on his fight he’s got next Yoel Romero and yeah, let them talk. I don’t give a f*ck about what these guys are doing. I just give a f*ck about me. And anytime I do something, any time I breathe. These guys tweet, say something stupid.
