Fans failed to keep calm and the moment quickly began to hit major trends on Twitter as MMA fighter Israel Adesanya headed to The Undertaker’s UFC 276 entrance music. Adesnaya wore a hat and walked to the Octagon with an urn in hand, looking like the WWE Legend, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. The grand entrance also included the light effect and the smoke coming as he walked towards the Octagon.
The urn bore the name of Jared Cannonier, Adesanya’s opponent in the main event, as the Nigerian-born New Zealander seemed confident of sending his latest challenger to rest in peace. Adesanya did the exact same thing and went on to retain his UFC middleweight title against Cannonier by a unanimous decision victory.
Incidentally, WWE was hosting their own pay-per-view event in Vegas, Money in the Bank. After wrapping up the annual pay-per-view show, Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Paul Levesque, popularly known as Triple H, and Pat McAfee attended the UFC event.
Meanwhile, Adesanya has previously expressed a desire to join a professional wrestling company in the future.
In the featherweight division, Alexander Volkanovski left no doubt of his supremacy while wrapping up his trilogy against Max Holloway in style. Volkanovski defeated Holloway for the third time on Saturday night, defending his 145-pound title via unanimous decision with a dominating striking performance at the same UFC event.
Volkanovski (25-1) extended his winning streak to 22 fights with an impressive display against Holloway (23-7), the former featherweight champion.
