BMW have ditched Nigerian-born UFC fighter Israel Adesanya as an ambassador after an offensive comment he made in an online video.
BMW has dropped Israel Adesanya over rape comments to Kevin Holland. Israel was billed to be signed on the 26th of March by the automobile giant but his statements in a pre-fight press activity was frowned at and BMW withdrew from the deal.
Adesanya made a pre-match ‘I’ll f***ing rape you’ taunt to rival UFC star Kevin Holland ahead of their fight, and this has made the German company (BMW) withdraw their deal with the UFC fighter.
However Israel Adesanya has gone on to apologise for his comments and admitting that he crossed the line.
