Taking to Twitter to share the news, Israel Adesanya showered praises on his father who supported his dream of becoming a fighter.

The Nigerian-New Zealander who was to be unveiled as the face of BMW in New Zealand, had told possible future opponent Kevin Holland in an online video, “Bro, I will fu**ing rape you.”

Following the video, a statement from BMW said that after a careful review of the comments he made online, it decided not to push forward with the pending deal it had with the UFC champion.

Their statement read: “Due to the comments made by an athlete online, we have reviewed our pending association with said athlete and we have decided not to push forward with a specific ambassador for the brand at this time in New Zealand.”
