Nigerian-born New Zealand fighter, Israel Adesanya has jokingly talked about going to Africa to bring ‘juju’ following his first career loss.
Recall that he was defeated by Blachowicz in their light heavyweight UFC championship contest.
The fight went the distance and all three judges’ scored the fight in favour of the Polish Power which the Style Bender admitted that he lost to the better man.
But Israel surprised an interviewer during the post-match conference, when he mentioned that he could go back to Nigeria to get some juju to help him win in his coming bouts.
The mixed-martial artist jokingly responded:
“I gotta go to find someone in the woods who is hanging and get their rope or something, or do some crazy juju. I’m Nigerian so you know I can go back home and get some juju as well.”
The 31-year-old whose 20-0 unbeaten record is now 21-1 and the middleweight champion revealed he will return to his division to defend his belt.
