    Israel Adesanya proved he could withstand a good amount of adversity on Saturday night at UFC 236 by surviving Kelvin Gastelum’s attacks to become the interim middleweight champion. His performance impressed the Atlanta crowd in attendance, including UFC president Dana White.

    “I’m sure many of you saw it tonight. Israel’s flashy, Israel’s a good-looking kid, Israel speaks really well. Israel became a star tonight,” White told reporters during his post-fight media scrum.

    just another data point for why Dana isn't a promoter.

    One who has to use food stamps to buy a rib eye steak is no less of a man than another with 2 belts and David Schwimmer money that eats in posh restaurants, then again now that I think about it-- yeah, dick niaz you're right.
