Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya for the first time openly spoke about his defeat in the duel with Sean Strickland, which cost him the title.

“Belts never mattered to me. That is, of course, they had, but, as I have clarified many times, this is just a nice regalia that brings more money and privileges. However, now I have reached the level where the championship belt is just a beautiful accessory.

I already had titles, many titles. Now I go out to fight to have fun,” Adesanya said in a release on his YouTube channel.

Let us remember that on September 10 at the UFC 293 tournament in Sydney, Australia, Strickland defeated Adesanya by unanimous decision.
