Snacks and Chats S02E02 - Israel Adesanya

Israel Adesanya aka "The Stylebender" talks with Lani and Ben about moving from Nigeria to Rotorura, NZ and going from a kid who was bullied in school to a professional fighter. They talk a lot about fighting and how that relates to life and his love of dance, why he chose fighting over dancing, his recent fights, the prospect of fighting in the UFC, who will win if the Mayweather v McGregor fight ever happens and keeping a winners mentality even after tough losses.  

I feel like I’ve got quite nice teeth, and I was like man, I hope no one knocks my teeth out with a knee or with an elbow or something. I think within two weeks of training, I accepted it. Like look, one day you might get your teeth knocked out. So once you accept it, you can overcome it. Example, my last fight, I got knocked out, I got slept, like flatlined … but, now that it’s happened I feel, oh, that was it. It wasn’t that bad.
