Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya was arrested at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport for carrying brass knuckles through security.

According to the Daily Mail, he was arrested on Wednesday by Port Authority police at 1:57 pm EST for possessing ‘metal knuckles.’ 

Recall last Saturday, Adesanya lost his title by TKO to Alex Pereira in New York.  




Brass knuckles are pieces of metal shaped to fit around the knuckles. They are also fist-load weapons used in hand-to-hand combat. 

In New York, carrying brass knuckles is a Class A misdemeanor, and is not legal to bring onboard an airplane. 

 Israel Adesanya is a Nigerian-New Zealand professional mixed martial artist, kickboxer, and former boxer who had won multiple championships in all three disciplines.
