Following his triumph, the Last Stylebender was thrilled with Haka Dance in New Zealand recently.
In a video making the rounds on the internet, Adesanya was seen receiving a special welcome from thousands of New Zealanders.
This comes after the mixed martial artiste declared his parents’ home country of Nigeria “a very corrupt place”.
While featuring as a guest on the Hot Boxin podcast, Adesanya said he loves Nigerians, but the country’s leaders are desperate to siphon public funds.
