After what was a huge display at UFC 253, Israel Adesanya caused controversy for his celebration in the cage. After knocking out Paulo Costa, who had insulted him in the previous one, made a gesture typical of the moment he was living, which caused rejection on social networks. Now, a few weeks after that, the Nigerian explained why he did it and what came next. Thus, he claimed to have sent him a message through digital platforms.
I don’t give a damn what they think, to be honest. I didn’t even think about it. I didn’t even plan it. It was justified. Like you know when you’re on ‘Call of Duty’ and you smoke someone with a headshot and then you go through them and then you press circle, down, up, down, up, kind of a tea bag. That’s what I did “, was what the Nigerian began by explaining, making it clear that he does not care about the criticism against him.
For its part, Israel He justified what happened in a few words: “What it is, is homophobia. People are just angry ‘why are you doing that, you are not a man because they feel inadequate’. Questioning your own sexuality. Dude, he said a lot of shit to me before the fight, he insulted me in a lot of different ways. People expected me to do nothing, when I had said absolutely everything before the fight.
The answer was not what was expected
“That was about a second after the fight was over and you expect me to be nice? Are you fucking kidding me? I was nice when I walked up to him and said ‘are you going to shake my hand?’ and he shook my hand and I said good fight, thanks. Thanks for the game. I was nice when I secretly DM him and check “how is your leg?” I just wanted to see how he was, “said the champion, highlighting that he sent him a message, worried about the damage to his leg.
To close, Israel Adesanya He admitted another piece of information: “I told him in the DM that you were disrespectful, so I must be disrespectful too. If you were respectful, I would be respectful, but I have to make an example of you. I let him know at the DM and then he put out the video that said ‘oh I want to kill you, I want to kill you’. So damn it, I released the DM’s message saying, “Look, this is what happened when I DM’d him. I am not an idiot. But if you’re an idiot to me, oh boy, I can give it back to you.
