Video: Israel Adesanya takes the ‘Hot Ones’ challenge

Israel Adesanya had himself a feast worthy of Thanksgiving following his fight with Alex Pereira at UFC 281.

Though Adesanya lost his middleweight title to Pereira at the Madison Square Garden event, he still took the time to appear on the popular Hot Ones YouTube program to take on the challenge of eating the spiciest chicken wings and also answer a few burning questions.
