Israel Adesanya has apologized for his controversial comments toward Yoel Romero at the UFC 248 press conference.
Adesanya got himself in complicated situation for saying he would make his opponent “crumble like the Twin Towers.”
“I never made a joke about people dying or made light of the tragic event that was 9/11,” Adesanya wrote on his Instagram Stories.
“I was simply rambling and my brain worked faster than my mouth in a moment to (choose) the wrong euphemism. You speak on the mic enough times and you’re bound to miss the mark with some bars. I did on this one and for that I’m sorry. I’ll be more careful in (the) future with my words.”
