The fighter shared a picture of himself on Instagram and wrote, “I said it years ago, if you had a chance to go watch me fight live locally you should have. I’m saying it again, if you have a chance to watch me fight live anywhere on earth… do so!! I’ve had well over a hundred fights and I don’t feel like I’ve lost a step.”

“I’ve gained more understanding for the game at 32 years young as a martial artist. My appearances in the octagon for the next few years will be something you will wanna tell your grandkids about being there live!! Watching me dismantle foe after foe, leaving bodies everywhere I go. So yea… I’m “looking for a fight!” as they say.”

Adesanya shared the post on Twitter too and wrote, “Oh my God, oh my God. If I die…”.
