Adesanya also shared his views on the much-talked-about tattoo bet between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley. The bet entails that whichever fighter loses the match will tattoo the winner’s names on their body. ‘The Last Stylebender’ believes that Woodley should not have accepted this bet.

He said, “But f**k that was a stupid bet he took as well. And he kind of got bullied into making that bet. Yeah, if you’re confident, f**k it, take the bet. But if you weren’t gonna take the bet, and you got coaxed into it, cause he was in your head and he just, yeah. Yeah no, confidence.”
