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.”
