UFC star Israel Adesanya denies taking performance enhancing drugs and rages ‘f*** no’ after flabby boob goes viral

UFC star Israel Adensanya has angrily blasted rumours he takes performance-enhancing drugs after a still of his 'saggy boob' went viral on social media.

The 31-year-old's right pec looked badly out of shape during his stunning KO victory against Paulo Costa.

Some viewers posted on social media suggesting it could be the result of having taken a prohibited substance.

But when asked by ESPN reporter Ariel Helwani if he had taken steroids, Adensanya replied: "F*** no! F*** no! I know you believe me, but come on!

"I'm not one of thsoe people that need a crutch that when that s*** is taken away, they feel weak, they feel inadequate.

"You saw that when USADA came through, a lot of bodies changed and a lot of people didn't feel good enough without their little magic supplements.

"But that's not me. Skills pay the bills."

Adesanya put on a masterclass against Costa to retain his middleweight title in the UFC 253 headliner at the weekend.

But before the second round knockout, the champion's abnormal-looking right peck caught the attention of viewers - including Jon Jones.

Jones tweeted: "What’s up with Izzy right tit."

Chris Weidman said: "Nipweird?"

Aljamain Sterling wrote: "What’s up with Izzys right Pec?! Did anyone else notice this? My girl just pointed it out."

Unbeaten Adesanya, 31, was asked about his chest in the post-fight press conference.

He responded: "Why are they looking at my titties?”

Doctor Brian Sutterer explained Adesanya's right pec in a YouTube video.

He said: "I don't think this is a peck tear, I saw that pop up online and there's no way Adesanya would have been able to fight with a peck tear.

"The other thing we need to think about here is whether this is just an accumulation of fatty tissue.

"That would be be called pseudogynecomastia.

"That can be from a number of different totally benign things, even things like repetitive trauma to an area which would make complete sense for a mixed martial artist."
