Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira’s paths are eternally linked – even when they’re just trying to catch a flight!

Israel Adesanya vs. Alex Pereira is one of combat sports’ greatest rivalries – but that doesn’t mean the pair can’t keep things lighthearted. Adesanya and Pereira ran into each other at the airport, sharing a laugh over the fact that they just can’t seem to escape each other.

Each fighter has a win over each other in MMA, with Adesanya recently reclaiming his middleweight strap over Pereira via 2nd round knockout at UFC 287. Although Pereira has 2 more wins over Adesanya in kickboxing, it seems like the saga between these two is over – at least inside the cage. Pereira made the decision to move up to 205, taking on former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz at UFC 291 in July.

Pereira and Adesanya both posted the encounter on their Twitter accounts. Check it out.
