Israel Adesanya’s coach, Eugene Bareman, has said that Israel Adesanya is itching to return to the Octagon.

After ‘Izzy’ lost his middleweight title to Sean Strickland at UFC 293, he chose to take a break from the fighting scene, shocking the fight world by announcing a three-year hiatus. However, he quickly reversed course.

In a recent discussion with Combat TV in New Zealand, Bareman provided updates on Izzy’s return, indicating that it’s on the horizon.

“Yeah, Izzy’s back training, so he’s back in the swing of things. We’re training just in case there’s an eventuality of a fight,” Bareman said about Izzy. “We’re getting him fit and he’s getting ready to take up a potential date should one come up soon. He’s basically finished his little hiatus and he’s ready to come back. So just give us a date, give us an opponent and we’ll show up ready to go.”

“I mean, we’ve been going for a good month-and-a-half now, so he’s probably on the edge of starting to look like he’s getting started to get back in shape. Yeah, a couple more months, another month-and-a-half, he’ll be flying. He’ll be back to pre-hiatus kind of level. He’s looking good. It’s good to have him back in the gym. He seems to have a renewed sort of energy, and he’s definitely resided to looking after himself really well. He’s been making the most of his time off and he feels like he’s refreshed and ready to go.”

Adesanya hasn’t finalized his next bout yet, but he recently hinted at a possible comeback for UFC 300.
