Adesanya attended Chrisland School and Bells Secondary School in Nigeria, where he excelled academically and showed an interest in sports. He played soccer, rugby, and basketball, but he also developed a passion for martial arts after watching movies like The Last Dragon and Ong-Bak.

When he was 10 years old, he started training in taekwondo at a local gym. He quickly progressed and earned his blue belt, but he had to stop after he broke his arm during a tournament. He later resumed his training in kickboxing and boxing, but he faced resistance from his parents who wanted him to focus on his studies. They also worried about his safety in Nigeria, which was plagued by violence and corruption.

In 2001, when Adesanya was 11 years old, his family decided to move to Ghana for a better life. They stayed there for 10 months before relocating to New Zealand in 2002. Adesanya enrolled at Rotorua Boys’ High School, where he faced bullying and racism from some of his classmates. He struggled to fit in and felt isolated and depressed. He found solace in martial arts, which helped him cope with his emotions and build his confidence.

He continued to train in kickboxing and boxing at various gyms in New Zealand. He also joined the school’s dance team and competed in national competitions. He graduated from high school in 2007 and enrolled at Universal College of Learning (UCOL) in Palmerston North. He studied computer graphic design and animation for two years, but he dropped out to pursue his dream of becoming a professional fighter.

Adesanya made his professional boxing debut in 2014 and had a record of 5-1 with one knockout. He fought mostly in New Zealand and Australia and won the New Zealand cruiserweight title in 2015.

Adesanya transitioned to mixed martial arts in 2012 and signed with the UFC in 2017. He made his debut in February 2018 and won by TKO. He quickly rose through the ranks of the middleweight division, defeating notable opponents like Anderson Silva, Kelvin Gastelum, and Robert Whittaker. He became the undisputed UFC middleweight champion in October 2019.

In March 2021, Adesanya moved up to light heavyweight to challenge Jan Blachowicz for the title. He lost by decision, suffering his first MMA defeat. He returned to middleweight and defended his title against Marvin Vettori in June 2021 by unanimous decision.

In April 2023, Adesanya avenged his only kickboxing loss by knocking out Alex Pereira in the second round of their rematch. Pereira had previously defeated Adesanya by KO in Glory in 2017.
