Adesanya, who only made his UFC debut last year, is now one of the hottest things in the promotion and he's on the cusp of super stardom.

The Nigerian-born Kiwi is slated to make the first defence of his 185lbs title against fellow-undefeated fighter Paula Costa.

Adesanya aimed a dig at the Brazilian challenger during the UFC 243 post-fight press conference.

"I enjoyed it myself," he said. "I definitely enjoyed [the moment], but it sells the next fight a little bit. At the same time, he's a bitch and he's my bitch, and I want to make him my bitch. So that's why I did what I did."
