The reigning middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya has made it a point in the past to bring some entertainment to his ring walks. He first caught eyes when he and his dance group would perform a routine before his first bout with Robert Whittaker, a fight he would win by knockout.
This past weekend, however, Adesanya decided to pay tribute to professional wrestling legend, The Undertaker. ‘Stylebender’ would sport an austere wide brim hat, a part of The Undertaker’s iconic image, and would carry an urn, another prop synonymous with the former WWE champion.
