Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya uses the entrance of WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker during his walkout at UFC 276. Adesanya defended his crown against Jarrod Cannonnier in the event.

The Undertaker’s entrance is considered one of the best entrances in the wrestling business. Since making his debut at the Survivor Series event in 1990, whenever the Hall of Famer has used the “The Deadman” gimmick, he’s always been in the ring with his iconic theme song and special lighting.

Now, the UFC Middleweight Champion, Adesanya has decided to use the Undertaker’s entrance at the UFC 276 event. In the presence of Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H, The Last Stylebender arrived in the Octagon wearing a WWE Hall of Famer hat and Undertaker’s theme music playing in the background. He also placed a gold urn in the octagon, which was synonymous with the former WWE Champion, and had the name of his UFC 276 opponent written on it.

At UFC 276, Adesanya successfully defended his middleweight crown against Cannonier in the main event of the night. The Last Stylebender retained his title via unanimous decision as he outsmarted his opponent to take the win.

The judges scored 49–46, 49–46 and 50–45 in favor of Adesanya in the competition. The main event for the UFC middleweight champion looked like an easy day at the office, as he defeated Cannonier 163-141 in the fight and even had a 116-90 advantage in terms of critical strikes .

Adesanya credited his opponent’s coach after the fight, saying he had an excellent game plan.

“He had a great game plan. It was really difficult to pursue my follow-up,” Adesanya said.

The UFC Middleweight Champion also indicated his intention to fight Alex Pereira, who also competed at UFC 276 with a knockout victory over Sean Strickland.
