UFC middleweight champion, Isreal Adesanya has come out to say that he’ll relocate from New Zealand to the United States.

He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and the world has been reacting.

According to him, due to the country’s stringent COVID-19 lockdown rules, he is seriously considering changing his location to make his life easier.

Adesanya added that when a man is faced with obstacles in life, he has to adapt and overcome.

His words, “Cats out the bag… I’m moving to America.”

“When faced with obstacles, we adapt and overcome. We built this legacy at City Kickboxing ourselves and the support of the people. No (government) handouts or backing and became the number one winning gym on earth.”

“Four walls and a roof don’t make a martial arts gym. The people who toil day in and day out make it what it is. So wherever those four walls and a roof is located, it’ll still be City Kickboxing.”


Israel Mobolaji Temitayo Odunayo Oluwafemi Owolabi Adesanya (born 22 July 1989) is a Nigerian-born New Zealand professional mixed martial artist.

He has also competed in kickboxing and boxing. As a mixed martial artist, he is currently signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), representing his native Nigeria, where he is the UFC Middleweight Champion and has an undefeated record of 20 wins and no losses.
