Adesanya took to Twitter to show fans his bright orange McLaren 720s which he has aptly nicknamed ‘Kurama’ the nine-tail fox from one of his favorite shows ‘Naruto.’

‘The Last Style Bender’ revealed in interviews that his dream car was a matte-black Lamborghini Aventador. When he finally reached a point in life where he could afford it, Adesanya revealed that he did not fit in the car because of his massive six feet four inches frame. Therefore, the middleweight champion opted to buy the McLaren instead.

2020 has been a good year for the champion Adesanya. He started the year off with a title defense against Yoel Romero in a highly criticized performance. In his second fight of the year, the middleweight champion took on Paulo Costa at UFC 253

Adesanya’s performance was extremely clinical, and he finished his opponent in the second round without breaking a sweat. The event is reported to be the fourth most successful pay-per-view of this year selling a staggering 700,000. This has obviously translated to a high pay-day for the Nigerian-born superstar.
