Fans, critics and fighters noticed his unusual pec with 'The Last Stylebender' denying any wrongdoing after being accused of doping.
Now, Adesanya's coach has addressed the controversy surrounding his pec.
When asked about the steroid accusations, the City Kickboxing trainer replied: "I think it's just outrageous."
He added: "To be pretty honest, we've just laughed it off.
"Like, it's just - I mean, not withstanding something maybe accidentally - and the chances of that are like slim-to-none as well because we're so good at using the right approved supplements and stuff, like, it's just never been a part of our ethics and morals at the gym."

Speaking after defending his UFC middleweight title, the Nigerian-born Kiwi star said: "I didn't want to speak about it until I know what it was.
"Because it's been on me for the last eight weeks and it was just growing and I was like, 'This is quite sore.'
"Even my girl told me, 'Go to the doctor,' but I was like, 'Ah, I'll just get this fight over with first.' I don't know what it is.
"I might keep you posted, or I might keep letting people speculate. It's kind of fun to watch people just cry about it."
Adesanya, meanwhile, improved his MMA record to 20-0 as he recorded his ninth win inside the famed Octagon.
