UFC 276: Israel Adesanya Gets Ready For Title Defence With Brutal Sparring Session

As Nigerian-born New Zealand professional mixed martial athlete, Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya looks to defend his UFC middleweight title against Jared Cannonier, he continues to prepare himself for the challenge ahead with brutal sparring sessions.

In a recent video uploaded to his official YouTube channel, ‘FREESTYLEBENDER,’ Adesanya was seen with Dan “The Hangman” Hooker where the latter helped him with his ground-and-pound defense at City Kickboxing in Auckland, New Zealand.

In what appeared to be a weird scenario, Hooker, a UFC lightweight didn’t hold back as he was seen pounding Adesanya brutally on the ground. However, the Stylebender returned the favour when they switched roles.

Adesanya was equally brutal with his vicious ground strikes on Hooker as the sparring partners continued to hurl curses at each other.

Watch the clip below.

Speaking on the forthcoming fight, Hooker believes Cannonier doesn’t stand a chance as he expects Adesanya to successfully defend his title.

“I think it’s a silly fight, I think it’s another silly fight,” Hooker said. “Yeah, I think it’s a silly fight. I think he’s [Adesanya] gonna wipe the floor with him [Cannonier].”
