With a brutal counter left hook at UFC 243, Israel Adesanya is the new, UFC middleweight champion. Not only was it a brilliant performance, and the proverbial passing of the torch, but luckily for us, he’s bringing his colorful personality along with it.

“I have a shinigami with me. And I just had to write his name because I knew — he’s not gonna last. I just wrote his name in a death note. Those who know the rules of the death note, they know. There’s a certain timeframe. After your name’s written in the death note, the shinigami will get you.”
It’s worth noting that fans have already done some pretty cool things with this revelation.
