Israel Adesanya Expresses His Frustration For Having “No Microwaves Allowed” in the Quarantine Hotel

Israel Adesanya points towards a potential entry into WWE

New Zealand hotel rooms have some ridiculous quarantine rules. Israel Adesanya expresses his frustration as he does his third-time quarantine in the country.

The Last Stylebender returned to his country after fighting UFC 259 in Las Vegas, USA. Although Adesanya could not win the bout against Blachowicz, he seems to enjoy his time at the quarantine hotel.

This is Adesanya’s third time staying at quarantine hotel. The last time he stayed in December 2020 was also frustrating. Last time he called it a ‘fancy prison’ and posted a message to prime minister Jacinda Ardern on Instagram.

Israel Adesanya is enjoying his Quarantine time

This time Adesanya is enjoying it. The 31-one-year-old UFC Middleweight Champion posted a video on Twitter in which he was warming foods through clothes iron. The quarantine hotel rooms do not provide a microwave. Hence, the champ used clothes iron. “Legit one of the dumbest rules of these quarantine hotels is no microwaves allowed. Why? Cuz it’s a FiRe hAZaRd,” he wrote.

The reason was funny to him, and he mentioned, “I could make a fire with 5 items in this room easy if I wanted to. But man Naija ingenuity prevails once again.” In another video, he has seen warming foods via hair dryer, which seemed hilarious. “Aside the kicks, grapples and take down skills, mans got cooking skills too,” a fan commented.

According to New Zealand’s border control measures for COVID-19, The Last Stylebender and his team will have to stay quarantined for at least 14 days. However, they will have to go through a health assessment and test negative for COVID-19 before they can enter the community.

In his last UFC 259 bout, Adesanya fought a tense first three rounds as his opponent Blachowicz was looking to minimize mistakes. Despite Adesanya’s technical striking skills, he lost to Blachowicz’s punches and kicks.

Adesanya and his team are expected to leave the quarantine facility in the next 13 days.
