Usman shares advice for Adesanya
Speaking to the MMA Junkie, Usman said, “Yes, I was definitely in his position.
“Honestly, looking back now, I probably rushed it. I probably should have taken a little bit more time off and then I’m still guaranteed that shot to go fight for that title.”
“For Israel, as a competitor, I’m sure he’s feeling a bit of this, as well, and thinking, ‘No, this guy shouldn’t have beat me in the first place’ just like I felt.
“This guy shouldn’t be in there with me in the first place as I felt and so you want to get it back and get that stain off you right away.
"But if you’re guaranteed that shot, I would like to see him take a little bit of time, enjoy life.”
Usman since the loss to Leon Edwards has been inactive in the UFC Welterweight division.
Adesanya is expected to know his fate in the coming weeks with UFC President Dana White set to make a decision.
