One of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC has issued a hilarious challenge to UFC middleweight champion Israel 'The Last Stylebender' Adesanya ahead of their upcoming title fight at Madison Square Garden on November 12.
Alex Pereira, who is a fierce rival of Adesanya, is currently in training for the showdown and posted a video of himself to social media sparring on a hoverboard and dared his opponent to try the same.
The caption said: 'Training with a tennis ball fácil is easy!' Pereira wrote. 'I want to see him train boxing on top of a hoverboard.'
The video was posted in response to a clip that Adesanya had posted of himself to his YouTube channel days earlier in which he was dodging tennis balls to improve his reaction time.
There is no love lost between the two middleweights who have faced each other
