UFC middleweight kingpin Israel Adesanya took to Twitter once again and got involved in a roast battle. “Stylebender” was the subject of taunting from a fan this time. Needless to say, he didn’t take those taunts light-heartedly as he came up with some hilarious responses of his own.

Adesanya has always been known for his colorful personality. His social media is nothing short of hilarious at times. Not so long ago, he expressed his anguish at fans always mobbing fighters whenever they are out in the public.

This time, a fan took that context and said Adesanya wouldn’t be where he is if not for his fans. The fan also added that he wants to see Jon “Bones” Jones smack “Stylebender”.

Adesanya seemed to have some free time on his hands and decided to reply. He mocked the fan for his profile picture and called him a ‘pedo’. He also asked his followers if they wanted the “smoke from these roasts.”

‘Stylebender’ then also went on to take his previous tweets as a reference. He even expressed his feeling of satisfaction at having ‘pimp slapped’ a fan.

Israel Adesanya will fight Jan Blachowicz next

“Stylebender” will fight Jan Blachowicz next in his quest to become a two-division UFC champion. Adesanya is looking to become one of the very few fighters to hold belts at different weight classes simultaneously. A fight against Blachowicz at light-heavyweight will provide him with the perfect opportunity to do so. Also, a successful title quest at 205 lbs could set up a potential super fight against the division’s former conqueror Jon Jones.

But with Jones set to pursue his future at heavyweight, there may be complications for that bout to come to fruition. Nevertheless, it will be fascinating to see Adesanya in a new weight class.

What do you make of Adesanya’s recent social media antics? Is he right to call out fans like that?
