Ryan Harkness - October 7, 2022
Israel Adesanya is five defenses deep into his undisputed middleweight title reign. And while he has a ways to go before he begins to challenge Anderson Silva’s ten title defense record, the pressure that comes with being a dominant champion is already mounting on ‘The Last Stylebender.’ One person who knows a little bit about the stresses of a long championship run is Georges St-Pierre, who was a two time welterweight champion and defended his title nine times between 2006 and 2013.
