Popular UFC star, Israel Adesanya has emerged as the promotion’s most profitable fighter for 2022.

He recently sold a combined total of more than $1.5m pay-per-views, and fans have been reacting.

Adesanya last entered the Octagon against Alex Pereira in November at UFC 281 in New York, and in that fight, which sold $600,000 PPV, Israel was defeated by TKO in the fifth round and lost the championship belt. He has 23 wins and two losses under his belt.

The 33-year-old held the middleweight belt for over three years but lost the title in his final fight of the year against kickboxing rival Alex Pereira. ‘The Last Stylebender’ had beaten most of the top contenders in his weight class but came up short against Pereira, as the Brazilian became a UFC champion after just four fights in the promotion.
