WATCH: Israel Adesanya hilariously offers to fight Robert Whittaker in a Pak N Save carpark

Headlines 16/04/2019

Fresh off his historic interim title win against Kelvin Gastelum, Israel Adesanya sat down with Megan Olivi to have a quick debrief on what had just happened. The Nigerian born Kiwi had just gone 5 rounds with one of the hardest hitters in the game, and wore a few momentos of the fight in the form of a fat lip and bruised face.

Despite this, the UFC phenom was already talking about his next match up against Kiwi-born Aussie-battler, Robert Whittaker. Interviewer Megan Olivi asked Adesanya when he would like to fight "The Reaper" in an attempt to unify the belts, to which he replied "He said he wants to go in August, so I'll go in Augustl."

This prompts coach and trainer Eugene Bareman to interject, saying that they'll wait a bit longer than that, perhaps to better prepare and recover. Being the good student he is, Izzy takes his coaches call on board, before jokingly offering an alternative. He looks directly into the camera, and says:

Tomorrow! Meet me at Pak N Save!
