Midnight Mania! Israel Adesanya trolls Chris Pratt over UFC 276 comments - ‘You’re just some fan’

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Israel Adesanya fired back at Chris Pratt on Wednesday following the actor’s comments (read them here) on Adesanya’s performance at UFC 276 this past weekend (Sat., July 2, 2022).

Despite going five rounds with a dangerous contender in Jared Cannonier, “Last Stylebender” has caught some flack for not scoring a finish. Adesanya had talked a lot of game leading into the fight and more than promised a knockout or submission over “Killa Gorilla.” Unfortunately, Adesanya was unable to put away Cannonier and ended up fighting to the scorecards for his fourth-straight time.

Pratt, who watched UFC 276 cageside from the first fight to the very last, made some remarks about Adesanya’s performance. The actor claimed Adesanya barked too much only to “pitter patter” inside of the Octagon. It was a comment that would come back to bite Pratt.

Adesanya, who was frustrated with the boos he heard at UFC 276, issued a response to Pratt on Wednesday. The reigning UFC middleweight king and pound-for-pound standout minced no words in explaining exactly who he is.

“Good morning. I’m the man. You’re just some fan,” he wrote while sharing a scene from the movie Wanted in which Pratt gets smacked in the face with a keyboard.

Adesanya continues to win and rarely takes on any damage so it’s hard to knock his performances of late. But, as one of the best strikers to ever step foot inside of the Octagon and a champion who prides himself on impressing the masses, maybe “Last Stylebender” can turn it up a notch his next time out.
