Israel Adesanya is one of the biggest names amongst the present UFC roster. “The Last Stylebender” has gained a lot of fame since his debut in 2017, due to his superior striking, unique entrances, funky dance moves, and anime-inspired gestures, he quickly became a fan favorite.
However, not everyone is a fan of his style and dance moves.
In a recent video, Izzy was breaking down the upcoming UFC London in his channel, when David Adesanya instigated Adesanya by showing him a clip of Pimblett reacting on “The Last Stylebender.”
The latest top UFC prospect Paddy Pimblett shared his views about Adesanya, calling his dance “stupid” and “choreographed s**t”.
“I like Israel, I like his style, I like his personality as well. I just don’t like the mad stupid dances he does when he comes out. All that choreographed s**t,” said Pimblett.
Izzy took that personally and challenged Pimblett to try to do the same in the biggest fight of his career.
Adesanya said, “He should do that. I dare him to fucking do a whole entrance on the biggest fight of his life. Not talking this fight, this ain’t the biggest fight of his life yet. He’s fighting a motherf**ker that’s 1-2. He’s getting fed a bum. Yeah, I dare him to try something like that and then fight and do what I did.”
However, the 32-year-old fighter later praised the youngster and said, “We’ll see, we’ll see. He’s good. And they [UFC] are gonna push him because he’s gonna sell… but… he can do very well.”

Pimblett will look to secure his second UFC win on the trot at the upcoming UFC London event.
“The Baddy” claims to put on a fabulous performance next weekend in London. He will take on the experienced Mexican fighter, Rodrigo Vargas inside the O2 Arena.
A week left now from his second fight at UFC London, the scouser claims that the work he has put in since his last outing has helped him evolving his game.
Pimblett indicated that the man we’re going to witness next week will be a much-improved version of what we saw last time out.
He offered some insights from his training camp, and how this camp has helped him grow.
“I know I’m going to absolutely school this kid on March 19th. I can’t wait to get back in the cage, it’s been too long. September 4th [to] March 19th. It’s a bit of a lay off. But the amount that I’ve come on in them six months, the training I’ve done. I’ve added Taekwondo into my game now.” Paddy added.
