I would hate to be the knee on neck cop

100% he’s deserves to be dealt with in a bad way, particularly since he has reportedly had a bad record of this....he is fukt, no matter what

I predict a suicide while in custody....this guy is going to die, guaranteed.....everyone in every state, alongside countries like England are protesting......the guy is enemy #1 everywhere

And hopefully he suffers

Adesanya stupidly worded his reply, whenever this post was made but he was responding and his point was more that the other person could not identify with his struggle being non black. Saying Get off my page cracker was stupid of him, and maybe Adesanya is racist but I feel it was more a sloppy reply


Just my view, and seeing in how supportive Adesanya is off his white teammaters and such

I'm with you on that one. He is a smart guy.

His speech at the Halberg Awards was far more eloquent.
It was all about "lifting each other up", and "when they win, we win. When you win, I win". etc

Socially distance, or there will be fines. This Covid is a sneaky clever virus.
Protesting together is ok though. Covid won't get you when pack mentality kicks in.

NZ has had its own ongoing dialogue around racism for years - Māori & NZ European (Pakeha) - which is mainly focussed on monetary compensation for "loss of land" though. Not about some dude getting dead from having his neck squashed - that's a bit rough.

The Treaty of Waitangi / Te Tiriti o Waitangi - the founding document of New Zealand / Aotearoa.

I do not think Izzy is racist in any way. I actually think, from the first time I saw him fight and interview, that not only is he a special talent, he is amazingly bright. Very eloquent young man. I think it was a sloppy reply but what bothers me is anytime folks show the post, its never the full convo, it was some other person , and Izzy was making a point , but then finished it dumb. Had he began with the insult, then intent looks different.


Izzy has a good heart and I am fan in and out of the cage, I just wanted to not look like I was too easily giving him a pass

I also look at the other parts, and that helps me see that he is a good dude likely

I hope he gets destroyed in his next fight. What a disgusting POS. There was a nascar guy (mixed race I believe) who recently said some dumb shit as well but he got FIRED and lit up on espn and a bunch of other sites. He (stylebender) says racist words/statements and its ok?? Fuck him. I am fighter bashing and I dont care because he is a racist. Zero excuse for what he said.
