Keep it in your pants, dude.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight newcomer, Israel Adesanya, found himself in hot water with the promotion’s higher-ups, thanks to his unique, post-fight celebration inside the Octagon.
After lighting up Rob Wilkinson on the UFC 221 “Prelims” card last month in Perth, “The Last Stylebender” pretended to whip out his dick and urinate in the corner of the cage — while the FOX Sports 1 cameras were rolling.
As you might expect, that’s not the kind of thing sponsors wants to be a part of, according to Adesanya’s conversation with Top Turtle on FloCombat.
“‘They told my manager that, ‘We handle a lot of sponsors, millions of dollars in sponsors. So for him to pretend to be with his dick out and shaking it after he pees as well or whatever, it’s not really a good look.’ For me, how I see it is, fuck, what are the sponsors worried about: Me pretending to whip an imaginary dick out and pee everywhere to mark my territory or just watching me just beat the fuck out of a dude? I don’t know what kind of game these sponsors are playing or whatever, but for me, I just have to make a statement. Any top dog would do it. My stench is still there. Whenever I get back into the cage, I’m sure I’ll smell it.”
I guess if people can shit inside the Octagon, what’s wrong with a little fake pee?
Adesanya (12-0) made his UFC debut in Perth after an electric start on the international circuit and is quickly gaining stateside fans for his violent finishes. All 12 of his wins have come by blistering knockout.
In fact, “The Last Stylebender” has already been booked for his next fight, a UFC on FOX 29 showdown opposite Marvin Vettori on April 14 in Glendale, Arizona (more on that upcoming fight card here).
No question a lights-out victory there puts him here.
