Meanwhile, UFC star Israel Adesanya has apologized for making an insensitive statement about his fellow fighter and opponent Kevin Holland.
Naija News reports that the Nigerian-born New Zealand MMA fighter made a rape comment while trash-talking Holland in a since-deleted video.
"Bro, I will fuckin' rape you," Adesanya had said in an Instagram video directed at Kevin Holland, who had targeted him with a series of insulting remarks.
However, in a statement on Friday morning, Adesanya said he "crossed the line" and he understands the gravity of what he said.
