Israel Adesanya reveals the most unorthodox way he has used to lose weight
After a recent interview with Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report, Israel Adesanya might have offered amateur MMA competitors a fresh approach to making weight.
Making the weights can be a difficult phase for some fighters putting both physical and mental stress on the competitors. In order to reach the necessary weight, fighters dehydrate and starve themselves. There are some absurd weight-cutting stories out there, such as fighters shaving off their hair to make weight, even though the majority of fighters use saunas and other common techniques to lose water.
But perhaps none is as absurd as what Israel Adesanya just said in an interview with Bleacher Report. According to “The Last Stylebender“, “In kickboxing back in the day, when I was an amateur when I was really young, I did not have the fight dietitian… I wasn’t in the UFC. Ah f**k man, okay I… I busted a nut to make weight.”
Prior to his MMA debut, he was a professional Kickboxer accumulating a 75-win record during his stint inside the kickboxing ring. Adesanya just recently lost his title to Alex Pereira at UFC 281 after staying unbeaten for 23 matches in the middleweight division.
