UFC star Israel Adesanya is undoubtedly one of the best kickers in combat sports history. He comes from a kickboxing background – he is a former Glory Middleweight Championship title challenger.
Israel Adesanya showcased his skill recently when during a promotional visit to one of his apparel brand stores. Some of his fans asked Adesanya if he could break their record on a punching bag machine. Seeing a horde of his fans gathering, Adesanya decided to put on a show to please the fans. He chose to give his fans a closer look to what his kick can do.
The 32-year-old Adesanya squared up against the ‘Dragon Punch’ punching bag machine that was placed inside the building. Instead of punching it, Israel Adesanya decided to kick the machine.
Israel Adesanya ended up breaking the machine with a thunderous kick. ‘The Last Stylebender’ took two tries – the first one simply broke the record displayed on the machine. The second one literally broke the bag. The bag got torn up and definitely had to be serviced. The footage was recorded by one of his fans gathered there and originally uploaded to TikTok.
Israel Adesanya’s last appearance in the octagon was back in June last year where he fought Marvin Vettori and beat him via unanimous decision, marking Adesanya’s third successful title defense. He is now scheduled for another title fight against Robert Whittaker in February, headlining UFC 271 event.
