Before delivering the orders, Adesanya was heard saying, “I just want to tell you, for my fellow kiwis, that ‘Engage’ is finally shipping directly from New Zealand. Finally! I know you guys have been waiting a long time for this because sometimes you’re ordering, you have to wait. Especially in these covid times, a couple of weeks for shipping to get over here. But now, we can ship directly from Auckland, New Zealand.”

He further stated, “So yeah, to celebrate, we’ve got some orders right here from some kids and I’m gonna deliver them myself firsthand, in the flesh. But on top of that, I’m gonna also hook them up with some brand new Engage iconic tees. Boom, look at that.”

Israel Adesanya had some great interactions with his fans while delivering their orders. He definitely put a smile on their faces. He even let a fan test his super car. Satisfied by how it all went, Adesanya said, “That’s it, all said and done. Deliver the good in my pretty sleigh.”

Whittaker and Adesanya faced each other back in 2019 at UFC 243. Whittaker lost that fight through a T/KO. However, he is one fighter who can really threaten Adesanya’s champion status. It’ll be interesting to watch them battle once again.
