This is not the first time that Anderson had to deal with these trolls. She has been continuously dealing with this kind of trolls and also serving as a role model for those who are dealing with the same.

Anderson posted the pic with a tweet that read, “This isn’t ok. I’ve also had someone threaten to r**e me. You can think I’m ugly, I’m a terrible fighter, I suck at cod; you don’t even have to like me, but do f*cking better.”

“I get absolutely harassed and cyberbullied every day as a game, and it’s not ok. We need to do better,” she concluded.

Adesanya, who has always followed the principles he has made for himself, came in to support her. He has always been vocal about people who don’t treat fighters the way they should be treated.

‘The Last Styebender’ wrote, “F*ck faceless c*nts like this. I hope their harsh words boomerangs back to them tenfold with eternal fire.”

What’s next for Israel Adesanya?

Adesanya (20-1) has been a dominant force in the middleweight division. He has taken out almost every big fighter from the division. His latest victim was Marvin Vettori, who couldn’t snatch the middleweight title from the Nigerian mauler at UFC 263.

It is almost a done deal that Adesanya will face veteran Robert Whittaker in defense of his title. The duo has already met before at UFC 243. Adesanya had defeated Whittaker for the title.

Adesanya himself has shown interest in fighting the Australian next. The latter is riding high on some great performances recently and would be eager to exact revenge on Adesanya.
