    To put into context : He did this at the biggest fight of his life! He was a challenger, the number 1 contender, challenging for the MW title in this match! Thats crazy that he had the time or even mind to plan this dance

      @Ben Its not only one, and far from first. Genki Sudo not only danced every time, but the performances were often huge show as he entered. Even though he mainly fought in japan he also had short run in UFC. He was also good fighter, but his biggest thing was that he was always extremely entertaining to watch. He also did bit of everything mma, kickboxing, and even pro wrestling.

      Just to think about what he will do for an entrance when the costa vs him "rivalry" heats up... he's a skillful yet born entertainer as we seen from kickboxing. People mistake it for ego or just being cocky but that's not the case. Can't wait, We'll see😥👀

    This is the hardest thing ever. He comes out like a boss and leaves the Octagon a boss. His bravado, confidence and charisma reminds me of a young Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali). Looking at this and seeing how the fight ended just makes this whole video so savage

      Moeshaak Shakur The only reason my saying Cassius Clay is because Adesanya reminds me of Ali when he was known as Clay. Particularly when Ali fought Sonny Liston, and he was Cassius Clay at the time. And I put Muhammad Ali in parenthesis 🤷🏿‍♂️

    Israel Adesanya is a rare human being. In the near future he's going to be reflected on as someone who not only brought large amounts of money, fans, change, and popularity to MMA, but he's Evolved the entire martial art as well. He's managed to combine the intense reality of fighting, the necessary delusions of ability within fighting, and even keeps the sport of MMA very ceremonial, sacred almost. It's hard to fully express that in actions and words, but I'm sure his ability to visualize his victories can say alot about how he does that. From the spectrum of how skilled Israel Adesanya is, unarmed combat is just going to become stronger, Super Saiyan style.
