The meme had a picture of the Aquaman actress. Besides, it noted, “I was the only one that gave a sh*t in this relationship – Amber Heard”

The Last Stylebender‘ shared the meme with a rather twisted caption. Apparently, the former Pirates of the Caribbean star had revealed finding human fecal matter on his bed. Later, Amber Heard suggested it was a ‘horrible practical joke.’

Anyhow, on the business end, the Nigerian-born will take on Jared Cannonier for his fifth defense of the UFC middleweight strap at UFC 276 on July 02. Adesanya saw the official bout announcement while making a reactionary video for his YouTube channel for the UFC 274 event.

Israel Adesanya vs. Jared Cannonier: breakdown

The 32-year-old, Israel Adesanya, will inch a step closer to his idol & middleweight legend, Anderson Silva, with his dominance in the division, whereas Cannonier will have his first major opportunity to become the world champion at 38.

Cannonier, 15-5-0, has dropped from the heavyweight division to the middleweight and has looked in phenomenal shape. Besides, he has looked healthy and his punches have looked lethal. The MMA lab affiliate has carried his power, thus, Adesanya would have his hands full if he gets touched by ‘Killa Gorilla.’

However, the champion is no stranger to fighting power punchers and strikers. Chiefly, his decimation of Paulo Costa suggests how easily he could deal with power if there is no mechanism behind it.

Since both fighters like to keep the fight standing, the champion would look to pick apart the challenger from the outside. ‘The Last Stylebender’ is a very intelligent fighter who doesn’t take any unnecessary risks in throwing hands inside the Octagon. Thus, Cannonier would need to get inside Adesanya’s range and bring the fight to the champion.
