An unlikely alliance was formed between Sean Strickland, Dricus du Plessis, and YouTuber ‘The MMA Guru’ against Israel Adesanya. The Last Stylebender’s rivals have reacted to a controversial video posted by The MMA Guru.
The YouTuber has made a wild claim that Adesanya has a weird “dog fetish.” He has compiled multiple proofs for his outrageous claim and created a video.
His proofs include a video of Adesanya touching the private parts of his dog. The YouTuber mentioned how the UFC fighter did not think it was wrong to upload such a video. On the other hand, he also talked about a video where Adesanya mouth-feeds his dog.
Apart from these videos, the YouTuber also exposed the likes and followings of Adesanya on social media that hint at him having a “dog fetish.”
The complete YouTube video did not go unnoticed. It has over 100,000 views and it seems that Izzy’s rivals have also got their hands on it.
The MMA Guru, Dricus Du Plessis and Sean Strickland teaming up to destroy Israel Adesanya’s image is something I never thought would happen.

Sean Strickland responds to a fan asking about Israel Adesanya’s shocking acts
Strickland has been famous for his controversial comments throughout his career and fans expected a wild match week when it was announced that he will face Adesanya for the UFC Middleweight title. The wild match week continues and it seems like Strickland will take full advantage of it.
During the UFC 293 open workouts, Strickland was asked by a fan about Adesanya’s viral acts. At that moment, Strickland laughed and moved away. However, he took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to respond. He said, “When you give people a microphone.. But man…. that’s between izzy and God lmao! And maybe someone call PETA”

Strickland has previously mentioned Adesanya’s video with his dog during an episode of the JRE MMA show. The podcast, hosted by UFC commentator Joe Rogan, saw Strickland call Adesanya a “sh*tty” person for his acts. Although Rogan seemed to defend Adesanya and change the topic, Strickland made his point clear.
The Nigerian-Kiwi fighter, known for his motivational and inspiring words, has an opportunity to further his fantastic story on September 9, 2023, when he faces Strickland to defend his UFC Middleweight title at UFC 293.
