Israel Adesanya blasts Derek Brunson: ‘Your bootleg Chuck Norris style has no power here’

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Israel Adesanya and Derek Brunson have been trading barbs for the best part of two weeks, but on Thursday, “The Last Stylebender” showcased his video editing skills as he chopped and cut up Brunson’s latest call to arms.

Brunson initially called for a fight with the City Kickboxing proponent on July 10, insisting that he wanted to face off with the “the last gender bender” in New Zealand via Twitter.

On Tuesday, Brunson doubled down on his efforts to goad Adesanya into a fight when he posted a video online inviting the striking ace to throw down at Madison Square Garden in early November, promising that he would “embarrass” the highly touted, unbeaten prospect.

Early on Thursday, “The Last Stylebender” responded by adding his own comedic flair to Brunson’s video call out along with a insulting caption that lambasted the American’s fighting style.

Update: Brunson responded to Adesanya later Thursday afternoon.
