Reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is set to make headlines again as he prepares to defend his title against controversial contender Sean Strickland at UFC 293 in Sydney.
Currently ranked as the fifth-best combatant in the world by the UFC, Israel Adesanya has earned a reputation as one of the most exceptional strikers in the history of the promotion. His journey to becoming a dominant force in the octagon has been nothing short of remarkable.
In a recent appearance on The Kyle and Jackie O show, Adesanya made a surprising revelation about his routine before the match. He said: “When I was younger I didn’t really care, because I had that vigor. But now as I get older I’ve been learning a lot about semen retention and abstinence and all that sort of stuff.”
He explained: “I like to keep my life force to myself until I want to bless someone with it.”
Additionally, Adesanya also opened up about his intriguing relationship with Mark Zuckerberg. The Meta CEO has been training for a highly anticipated cage match against Elon Musk, a prospect that has generated considerable buzz. Adesanya, believes that Zuckerberg has what it takes to emerge victorious.
Adesanya remarked during an interview with radio hosts Fitzy & Wippa: “He’s a smart man. Look what he’s done with his life. If he puts his mind to anything, he can get it done.”
Adesanya couldn’t help but comment on Zuckerberg’s physical condition, saying: “And you saw when he took his shirt off – I was like what the f**k!”
During a wakeboarding trip with Zuckerberg, Adesanya discovered that the billionaire is just a regular guy. He described the experience, saying: “He’s just a man. He’s just a regular bloke. Even on the wakeboard he was just shredding – I was like that’s motherf**king 007!”
However, Adesanya expressed skepticism about the potential match between Zuckerberg and Musk, suggesting that Musk might not be genuinely interested in stepping into the cage.
