UFC fighters have been keeping it extra spicy on Twitter lately, to the point where Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov had to be told by the promotion to chill out with the back and forth insults before someone gets murdered. We have our doubts that official intervention will help improve the situation between the two, but at least the UFC is on the record trying telling them to stop it.
Now we don’t want to go all Twitter police on everyone, but McGregor and Nurmagomedov aren’t the only two guys on the roster being colorful on social media. Potential next big thing Israel Adesanya is also out there doing whatever he wants and last night it led to this sexually explicit comment about his upcoming opponent Kelvin Gastelum:
Twitter was quick to react.
Of course, what did you really expect from a guy who’s first bit of non-Reebok merchandise was a shirt with ‘Good C**t’ written on it? Still, it almost makes you miss the days when the UFC Code of Conduct was in effect and some poor sucker intern on staff had to forward stuff like this to Dana White for review. Miguel Torres would be proud.
Israel Adesanya takes on Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight title on April 13th at UFC 236.
