Israel Adesanya, a Kiwi who was born in Nigeria, recently took some time off to enjoy a good time. He may be getting ready to fight his longtime rival Alex Pereira at UFC 287. In response to a deliberately manipulated spoof video of Elon Musk’s appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, the former UFC middleweight champion recently voiced his opinion.
Fans like ‘The Last Stylebender’ for his lively online character and his sense of humour. He routinely tweets amusing memes with clever captions, and in one of his most recent posts, he included a comedic voice-over edit of Joe Rogan’s podcast guests Jordan Peterson and Elon Musk.
Israel Adesanya seemed to enjoy the three men’s jokes in the video about Musk joining the pay-per-view streaming service OnlyFans. He tweeted the original post in quotation, stating:
In UFC 287, Adesanya will take on “Poatan” in an attempt to recapture the middleweight championship.
The two men engaged in two kickboxing matches prior to their first encounter in the UFC, with Pereira winning both matches. It would be intriguing to watch if Adesanya can eventually overcome Pereira or if the New Zealander of Nigerian descent will lose to “Poatan” 4-0 in combat sports.
Israel Adesanya next fight: Robert Whittaker on ‘The Last Stylebender’s mindset ahead of UFC 287
At UFC 287, Israel Adesanya will take on Alex Pereira in an attempt to extract retribution and recapture the middleweight championship. Fans are anxiously anticipating April 8 since the two longtime adversaries have a turbulent past.
‘The Last Stylebender’ was cruising to a decision victory in their previous fight when ‘Poatan’ pulled off a surprise TKO victory in the final round to rob Adesanya of the middleweight title. Yet according to Robert Whittaker, the former middleweight champion might be in a better frame of mind for his upcoming battle.
‘The Reaper’ offered his opinion on the forthcoming middleweight title battle in an interview with Michael Bisping, predicting that Adesanya might not feel the same pressure entering this bout as he did in the previous one. He declared:
If we only consider the fight from a mental standpoint, perhaps now that the worst has occurred, he is better prepared for the next one. He enters there mentally unburdened because the worst has already occurred. Or perhaps he is afraid it will happen again with the little gloves since it has.
