Adesanya: “Back in the day when I was an amateur, when I was really young and didn’t have a fight dietician, I wasn’t in the UFC…I busted a nut to make weight.”
Adesanya went into more detail when Rooks followed up by asking how much did the nut weight.
At the time I was young and I was in that whole, no (sex) before a fight and yeah, a few grams came off, 100 grams
Fans were stunned by Adesanya’s confession.
