Israel Adesanya hilariously trolls the media in New Zealand
UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has once again trolled the New Zealand media, asking them to cancel him by the end of his flight.
Adesanya, who has previously spoken publicly about his issues with the media and the country’s government, posted a video on Twitter that he hoped the media would take out of context.
“Bout to fly back, 3 hours in the sky, no WiFi! You better cancel me the moment I hit land, especially your sorry apologies for new sites in New Zealand, lol shitty hub! !”
The 15-second video includes text that reads, “Please don’t take this seriously.” The audio simulates sexual sounds, but includes the term shout “Go the Warriors!”
“The Last Stylebender” followed his tweet with context, including a video of him at a comedy club featuring a comedian discussing New Zealand porn, which included a joke about hearing the term “ Go the Warriors” in the bedroom.
“For context…because y’all hate context”
Israel Adesanya will step into the octagon to defend his middleweight title again on July 2, this time against Jared Cannonier at UFC 276. “The Killa Gorilla” will make his first championship fight walk, while Adesanya will seek to extend his title defensive streak to five.
Israel Adesanya admits he will never fight in New Zealand again after ‘racist’ treatment of UFC fighters
Israel Adesanya is no stranger to standing up for what he believes in and has a habit of calling out the New Zealand media and government because of his treatment of UFC fighters.
In 2021, ahead of UFC 266, Kiwi Dan Hooker and trainer Eugene Bareman were questioned by New Zealand police after leaving the City Kickboxing gym. This was due to COVID-19 measures, which prevented people from training in gyms, even if they were empty.
Adesanya believes the government deliberately targeted Dan Hooker in hopes of disrupting his fight camp.
On his YouTube channel, the 32-year-old launched a scathing attack on New Zealand and the “racism” he has witnessed.
“The constant effort to suffocate, break up, disrupt our City Kickboxing team helping team captain Dan ‘Hangman’ prepare for his fight, that pissed me off the most. If that was me, I would. already know, they don’t like me, the bureaucrats in this fucking country… also they’re racist, some of them are fucking racist, of course they don’t want a black boy representing New Zealand but you do that to Dan ‘Hangman’ Hooker…Dan drapes his country over his shoulders in the weigh-ins, in the walkout he puts this country on his back.”
The middleweight champion added:
“You’ll never see me fight in New Zealand again. That’s me. I’m done… One of my dreams was to headline a stadium in my backyard. That dream is dead. “
