The signing of Israel Adesanya by the UFC has been met with enthusiasm.
After all, it’s not every day that an undefeated, exciting 28-year-old striker who happens to have knocked out all of his 11 MMA opponents crashes the middleweight scene. Add to it an extensive and highly victorious kickboxing record – 75-4, according to Adesanya’s own calculations – and you understand why there’s excitement.
