Big Brother Naija ex-contestant, Ifu Ennada has said she loves UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya.
The actress said she would not mind going on a date with the Nigerian-New Zealand mixed martial artist if he is open to the idea.
Ifu stated this in an interview while talking about her favourite sporting activities and athletes that she admires.
When asked who she prefers between Anthony Joshua, Kamaru Usman and Israel Adesanya, she picked the latter.
In her words; “My favourite would be Israel, and aside the fact that he is extremely handsome and hot, the fact that he is also petty, I love it. What he did to Pereira’s son by mocking him the way he mocked him after he won, I love it, some people were saying ‘why’, and I’m like ‘why not?’ I like the fact that he looked for the guy and gave it back to him.
I know he is an adult but that is something someone like me would do, so, I love him for that. He is very confident, I just love Izzy, he walks into a room and you can feel his energy, and that is the type of person I am as well.”
Ifu Ennada added; “If he wants to go on a date with me, why not?”
She said; “I used to be a big fan of wrestling until I discovered that their matches were scripted, I also like boxing but I don’t really follow it. What I follow now is the MMA and there are some Nigerians there like Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman.”
