Israel Adesanya won big at UFC 276. The star made his entrance with a full-on tribute to WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker. He even got approval from The Dead Man, but apparently MCU actor Chris Pratt was underwhelmed by his performance.
Chris Pratt was part of a post-fight show after Adesanya’s win over Jared Cannonier. Pratt said that he didn’t find the UFC champ’s performance all that impressive after he talked trash against Cannonier for days. The actor said it modestly, but Adesanya didn’t like the criticism.
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. I’m like, ‘C’mon, man. You’ve got to cash on that promise of being so badass.’
Israel Adesanya took about four days to respond to Pratt’s comments. He simply took to Twitter on early Wednesday morning. His clap back to Pratt included a clip of the actor getting brutally knocked out in the 2009 flick, ‘Wanted.’ He used an interesting caption to take shots at the actor, calling him “some fan.”
Good morning. 😊 I’m the man. You’re just some fan.
The UFC star is living it up after his huge win at UFC 276. He was seen partying at the XS Nightclub in Vegas after delivering big time in the fight. A reaction from Chris Pratt is unlikely, but if the two keep the beef going, it’ll be very interesting.
Israel Adesanya’s tribute to The Undertaker made a lot of waves in the world of WWE. Vince McMahon was very impressed with the tribute, as he attended the show alongside Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and Nick Khan. Adesanya has also said that he’s planning a jump to WWE sometime in the future. We have no word on what The Undertaker thinks about Chris Pratt.
