Israel Adesanya is already the face of Puma and the Middleweight champion seems to have had a lot of fun for Dolce & Gabbana

UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya is enjoying his time with the gold and recently shared some pictures from his latest photoshoot.

Adesanya became the face for Puma, a first for a UFC athlete recently, and his stock seems to be soaring. The 31-year-old is undefeated in his MMA career and holds the UFC Middleweight title.

He is 20-0 in his MMA career and last defeated Paulo Costa. The Stylebender, as he is called, has a lot on his mind as he prepares for another title shot.

However, he also has time to style around and that was more than evident from his latest photoshoot.

The shoot seems to have been done in black and white for giants Dolce & Gabbana and Adesanya was more than happy to share a few clicks.

Izzy is never afraid to speak his mind or show off what he is doing. While he does say a lot outside of the Octagon, the Stylebender has more than backed it up with some incredible performances in the UFC.

Two-division champion?

The 31-year-old will next fight Jan Blachowicz but he won’t be defending his middleweight title. Adesanya is keen on becoming a two-division champion and Blachowicz is the current UFC Light Heavyweight champion.

Blachowicz picked up the vacant title after defeated Dominick Reyes and this should be an interesting fight.

Adesanya has more or less defeated every top contender in his Middleweight division and it makes sense for him to move up.

There are no plans for him to give up his current title and he is capable of holding two belts at one time. However, moving up a division does have its own issues with more powerful strikers coming into play.

UFC coach Marc Montoya also had some questions regarding Izzy moving up, but it seems the Stylebender is the favourite to win this clash against Reyes.
