Israel Adesanya has chimed in on the masculinity conversation.

Adesanya believes that the present-day world is trying to soften men by suppressing them of their masculinity and name-dropped some viral (and controversial) minds on the matter, including Andrew Tate.
“Someone like Jordan [Peterson], Andrew [Tate], Dave Goggins, guys like that, they’re the ones who are really, to be honest, pushing men to be accountable as men. Like the world right now is trying to soften us,” Adesanya said on The Honey Badger Hour.
“Jordan actually said, was it Jordan? Like how back in the day, the kings and whatnot want to stop an uproar or uprising, they kill all the fighting age males, kill them. You can’t kill them right now. So what do you do? You f*cking ‘p*ssify’ them,” Adesanya continued. “Make them feel emasculated. You just have to take a stand.”
‘Fighting Brings Us The World Together’
While everybody seems to have a different opinion and be divided on this, Adesanya says we’re all human and that fighting brings us closer together.
“I know who I am. I know you know who you are. I like the fact that we have a crew of people who actually like stand and we’re all different people, like different walks of life. I don’t want to get too much into it, but everyone in there has different beliefs, different mentality, different even I hear politics and stuff like, and they ‘rizz’ on each other for it.
“But it’s funny, at the end of the day, we’re all brothers and we are all still a community and fighting brings us together. I feel like that’s how the world should be, fighting Brings the world together, men especially [need to train martial arts].”
