Before his win on Saturday, outspoken UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya called for the public naming and repercussions for the “pedos” involved in the Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell case.
Epstein, a convicted sex offender, reportedly killed himself in August 2019 while awaiting trial for his sex crimes. His longtime companion and ex-girlfriend, Maxwell, was sentenced last month to 20 years in prison for helping Epstein recruit, groom, and sexually abuse young girls, The Daily Wire reported.
“Ghislaine Maxwell just got put away for 20 years,” Adesanya said. “So, she was supplying kids for all these f***ing pedos, right? Where’s the list?”
“So, the list of, you know, politicians, and actresses and actors, or whatever, that get talked about, does that just get swept under the rug?” he asked. “Do they not get any time for actually f***ing those kids? You know what I mean?”
“I don’t know, like that’s just weird, like how all that just doesn’t compute with me,” Adesanya added.
Epstein reportedly had ties to former President Bill Clinton, allegedly even visiting the White House with numerous women, The Daily Wire reported. Prince Andrew, too, reportedly had ties to the convicted pedophile and has been accused of raping then-teenager Virginia Giuffre.
Very true 🤷🏻

Adesanya in February made headlines when he fiercely defended popular podcast host Joe Rogan, who the Left smeared as racist and a promoter of “disinformation.”
The fighter took on a question that was not directed toward him during a pre-fight conference, calling Rogan “one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf***ers” in the industry.
A reporter asked UFC President Dana White about the “controversy” surrounding Rogan and controversial language the podcaster has used on his show. As White started to walk away from the podium, Adesanya said he wanted to take on the question, The Daily Wire reported.
“Hold up,” Adesanya said. “I’m black. I can take this one.”
“Look, there’s a lot of c***s in this game,” he told the reporter. “There are a lot of snakes in this game. I’ve been in this fight game since 2008. Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherf***ers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Understand that.”
“F*** the noise,” Adesanya added. “You know what they’re trying to do. You can’t control the man. He’s got the biggest platform in the world right now. That’s my n**** Joe Rogan.”
