UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has a style none, an aura none could impersonate. He makes sure he stands out, whether in fights inside the Octagon or during the walk-off towards the Octagon or generally, even during public appearances. Adesanya has a fashion sense of looking flashy and that’s what his fighting style represents, to throw a flurry of combinations that flash before the opponent’s eyes.
Adesanya, therefore, has a say in almost everything surrounding pop culture, MMA, Anime and Fashion. This time, the Nigerian-New Zealandian mixed martial artist came up with his list of top 3 best-dressed fighters in the UFC. The list may or may not be obvious to you but here is Adesanya, nicknamed “Stylebender,” saying names that impress him the most in dressing sense.
Who are the 3 fighters Israel Adesanya is most impressed by with their taste of fashion
“My top best dressed UFC fighters would be, myself, umm I like a good suit so I would say Conor [McGregor], [Kamaru] Usman 100%, I like his threads at the press conferences, he’s always dripped up. So yeah I would say the top 3 would be us three right there,” said Israel Adesanya in an interview with GQ Sports. Adesanya is in the prime of his career being reigning, defending, UFC middleweight champion with three title defences, the second most defences in UFC’s current roster of champions.
It’s a rather very challenging question of who is going to be the next title challenger to “Stylebender.” Former title-challenger Marvin Vettori just came off a unanimous decision victory of another former title challenger Paulo Costa and Derek Brunson, who’s on a five-fight win streak, is going to fight Jared Cannonier, who has won 4 of his last five fights. Meanwhile, it’s still not clear if the former champion preceding Israel Adesanya, Robert Whittaker is going to fight anytime soon.
