UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya received an apology from “Guardians of the Galaxy” star, Chris Pratt after the actor criticized his performance last weekend.
Pratt attended UFC 276 which took place on July 2nd at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the night’s headlining act, “The Last Stylebender” put his middleweight belt on the line against Jared Cannonier. And although Adesanya claimed his fifth title defense, many viewed the bout as a dull and boring affair.
Adesanya left no doubt in the judges’ minds, winning via unanimous decision, but Pratt was unimpressed with the champion’s performance. Before the fight, The Last Stylebender had boasted of his intentions to “show off and show out.”
Pratt didn’t feel Adesanya accomplished that, saying post-fight, “I’m gonna say this as humbly as I can, as a guy who never stepped in the Octagon. I don’t know this game, I’m just an actor. But I’m not a fan, man. I’m not a fan of coming out, like, all that talk and then just kind of putting on a little bit of a pitter-patter.
