He’s Ripped into fans interrupting his Public Gym workouts



Israel Adesanya Gets Serious About Dricus Du Plessis: ‘I Will Show Him Who The F*** I Am’


Israel Adesanya is so focused on his likely September 10 date at UFC 293 in Sydney, Australia against the winner of the UFC 290 headliner between Robert Whittaker and Dricus du Plessis, that he is ready to rip into fans interrupting his public gym workouts.


Former champion Whittaker main events UFC 290 against Du Plessis on July 8th at the T-Mobile Arena stadium in Las Vegas but the current UFC middleweight title holder Adesanya, is leaving no stone unturned as he’s already back in the gym sweating it out in readiness for the winner of that fight.



The Last Stylebender is irked by fans’ interruption while he’s neck deep into his public gym workouts. Posting on his social media account, the New Zealand resident discussed the issue hoping to straighten out the issue with fans.


“People, stop taking sneak photos of me in the gym. Imagine if I started to doing it, taking sneak photos of people, I’ll be a creep. So when you start to take sneak photos…at the gym, you’re a f***ing creep too. Whether you are a man, woman, or child. I don’t give a f**k, you’re a f***ing creep,” Adesanya fumed.


“Quick [nod], fist bump, quick smile, quick hello [would be fine already],” he added. “Don’t hold me hostage with your conversation. He’s got a timer on his phone where I’m supposed to rest. And when you hold me hostage, I’m not resting. So, don’t do that…. To the ladies I scolded, I went up to them and said, ‘Look, how would you feel if I would be secretly filming you in the gym?’ And immediately, it was just like [snaps]. And they apologized. So, shoutout to them, for taking that in good faith.”



Whittaker versus Du Plessis inside the Octagon of Las Vegas is just an elimination contest for the right to face the champion next but The Stylebender’s camp wish is for their fighter to clash with the South African in Sydney come September.


Adesanya’s coach Eugene Bareman choses Du Plessis to take on his fighter because Whittaker has been more than very ordinary since losing to Adesanya in their rematch last year. Besides there’s been a lot of verbal brass talks between The Stylebender and the South African.


However, as Adesanya is domiciled in New Zealand and Whittaker is a native of Australia, Adesanya versus Whittaker 3 is potentially a must-see-fight for the contingent of Anzac fight fans.
