The Undertaker has reacted to the entrance of Israel Adesanya at UFC 276.

Israel Adesanya made headlines last day with his successful title defense at UFC 276 against Jared Cannonier. While the win was something that people talked about, his entrance gained attention as well.

The UFC Middleweight champion paid tribute to the legendary Undertaker and walked out to the Phenom’s entrance song ahead of the fight. Adesanya had his own Undertaker hat and an urn that had Jared’s name on it.

Interestingly, WWE’s Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and Triple H were in the front row for the fight which made matters more symbolic. And now, The Undertaker himself has reacted to the entrance of Adesanya.

Speaking to Ariel Helwani, The Undertaker noted that Adesanya is an awesome entertainer.

“I thought it was great! He’s not only a great fighter, but he’s also an awesome entertainer as well! Tyson Fury gets knocked down & sits up like the UT and Adesanya uses my walkout! Pretty damn cool,” he said as per the Tweet from Helwani.

The UFC star had expressed his interest in a move to WWE sometime back and revealed that it was a childhood dream of his. As to his UFC career, he seems to be in a collision course with Alex Pereira next as the Brazilian picked up a knockout win against Sean Strickland on the UFC 276 main card.

Adesanya remained unbeaten at Middleweight with his win but had attracted criticism for his lackluster performance. The champion himself admitted that he had an ‘off-day’ inside the cage and reminded that names like Georges St. Pierre used to get booed just like him.
