ONE Championship two-division world champion Reinier De Ridder thinks that he can outclass UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.

De Ridder talked about the same during a recent interview with IB times and added that it would be easy to take down Adesanya.

“Adesanya, he gets taken down pretty easily in the center of the Octagon, or in the center of the Circle. Even a guy like [Marvin] Vettori took him down, Jan himself pretty easily took him down in the center as well. His takedown defense against the fence is a lot better, but his takedown defense in open space is just—to be honest—terrible,” he told.

The Dutchman had won both the ONE Championship Middleweight Title and the Light Heavyweight Title with consecutive wins over Aung La N Sang and sounded confident about outclassing Jan Blachowicz as well.

“Jan is a little shorter than I am, he has a great right hand, a great right kick, so who comes to mind? To me, Aung La N Sang...very explosive, very dangerous, and can knock you out with any shot. He struggles with rangy guys and grapplers, and I am both,” De Ridder said.
