 Brazilian outlet AGFight reported that the bus driving Israel Adesanya to the UFC 281 press conference was involved in a minor accident.

According to the report, the bus hit a fire hydrant en route to Madison Square Garden for the press conference.

Along with Adesanya, the report suggested that another UFC champ Alexander Volkanovski was also on the same bus.

The bus sustained some damage in the accident, but no passenger faced any sort of  injuries.

Israel Adesanya will be fighting Alex Pereira at the UFC 281 for his sixth successive middleweight title defence.

Pereira and Adesanya faced each other back in kickboxing days, where the Brazillian defeated the current UFC champ twice.

I think it’s gonna be a high pace. He’s not gonna be able to keep that high pace,” said confident Adesanya to The AllStar

In the co-main event of UFC 281, former women's strawweight champion Zhang Weili will challenge current champion Carla Esparza for the title.
