Racist mocked former UFC middleweight champion – Adesanya

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya revealed he suffered racism after leaving Nigeria for New Zealand with his family.

Adesanya was raised on the island nation of New Zealand with the fighter having to move to a new country at the tender age of 10.

Fans have always been wondering why Adesanya’s parents moved to a completely different country, away from all their family and close friends.

In a recent interview, ‘The Last Stylebender’ while responding to the reason behind their move to New Zealand said like many other blacks, he suffered racism after their relocation.

“I never realised I was black till I left Nigeria, I knew my skin tone but I never knew it was a problem, that people would discriminate against me because of my skin tone and it was weird for me,” he said.
