Culture 27/09/2021

Israel Adesanya has revealed he is going to be basing himself in the US after expressing frustration with MIQ.

Days after venting on his YouTube channel and saying he will never fight in New Zealand again - Adesanya confirmed the overseas move on social media.

'Cats out the bag… I’m moving to America', he wrote.

'When faced with obstacles, we adapt and overcome. I’m 32 and applying pressure like J Cole before I’m out the game. We built this legacy at @citykickboxing ourselves and the support of the people.

'No govt 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!!'
