Israel Adesanaya, UFC 243
Just try and imagine for a minute.
You’re moments away from fighting for a UFC title, you’re in front of nearly 60,000 people, and you’re fighting one of the greatest fighters on the planet.
Nerves are off the charts, right?
Well, that’s the difference between the average person and Israel Adesanya. Rather than have any jitters or feel nervous, Adesanya had a whole dance routine planned for his walkout. Having a couple of dancers go out for his entrance, and then joining them for a routine, Adesanya then went on to fight and beat Robert Whittaker minutes later with a second-round knockout.
The sheer amount of confidence is staggering, and he followed up the dance routine with the destruction of Robert Whittaker. Literally going from a dance routine to a cage fight against one of the baddest men on the planet and coming out on top, truly insane stuff from Israel Adesanya.
These sorts of choreographed walkouts always work so much better when you win.
