Last Sunday, In an entertaining five round of war, New Zealand based Israel Adesanya beat Kelvin Gastelum to become UFC interim middleweight title. He won the fight via unanimous decision (48-46, 48-46, 48-46) at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
He became the second African-born UFC champion after his fellow countryman from Nigeria, Kamaru Usman won the title last month by dominantly defeating Tyron Woodley at UFC 235.
After this win, an MMA fan tweeted out that Israel Adesanya won’t have to like pornstars on Twitter as they would be sliding into his DM now. A Twitter user with username @rickson_mma wrote, “bro i’m so happy for you now that you are the champion, you won’t have to like pornstars on twitter anymore because they will slide straight into your dms.”
To which Israel tweeted that he likes doing it.
