Chris Weidman has been trying to make the case that he would pose a serious threat to Israel Adesanya’s reign, and recently the UFC’s middleweight champ fired back.

Recently Weidman argued that Adesanya is “tailor-made” for him as an opponent, and since then the two had this exchange on Twitter.

Heyyy I just realized I have 2 common opponents with Adesanya…Gastelum who I finished. Then Silva who I finished twice. Adesanya squeaked by decisions on both of those guys.. Adesanya is just another Silva without the black belt in Jitsu. Easy

@chrisweidman …get some wins first please.
I already have you figured out.
I’ve sized you up a few times.
Watched you hit and miss
I know how to fuck up your single and double leg attacks
I’m 10 steps ahead like I said.
I knew I would use this clip one day to prove that I knew!

The 36-year-old Weidman (15-5) is coming off a decision win over Omari Akhmedov in August. Adesanya (20-0) defended his title at UFC 253 last weekend, by stopping Paulo Costa.
