Israel Adesanya was present at Dana White’s Contender Series to support a teammate but also caught the attention of many by sporting a fanny pack

The latest Dana White’s Contender Series saw four stars get contracts after a night of epic hits.

Carlos Ulberg was one of those to get a UFC contract as the Kiwi star defeated Bruno Oliveira. The finish was fantastic as well and that got a lot of people talking.

However, this didn’t come as a surprise to Israel Adesanya. The UFC Middleweight Champion was present at the show to support his teammate, Ulberg, and had predicted he would get a contract earlier in the week.

Adesanya also celebrated wildly with his teammates, and it was quite a night for the Kiwi stars. The Stylebender is coming off an incredible win over Paulo Costa at UFC 253 and it will be interesting to see how he does in his next fight.

Adesanya faces Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz and that should be a great bout as the Kiwi plans to become a two-division champion in the UFC.

The Stylebender is known to take a few risks when it comes to his looks. He dyed his hair pink during one stage and decided to rock a fanny pack recently too.

Fans dig the fanny pack

Laura Sanko, who conducts many of the interviews for the UFC, was doing the same with Adesanya during the Contender Series event.

A snippet was shared by Ariel Helwani which highlighted that Adesanya was rocking a fanny pack, and that got a lot of people talking.

Ulberg might have got the contract and impressed many, but Adesanya also caught a lot of attention with his latest style statement.
