UFC champion Israel Adesanya is forced to apologise for sick 9/11 remark at a press conference after vowing to make his opponent “crumble like the Twin Towers”

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, 30, has apologized for threatening his opponent in an upcoming fight that he would “crumble like the Twin Towers”, reports Jack Kinnersley for the Daily Mail. 

The apology, made via Instagram, read in part, “I never made a joke about people dying or made light of the tragic event that was 9/11. I was simply rambling and my brain worked faster than my mouth in a moment to (choose) the wrong euphemism.”

“You speak on the mic enough times and you’re bound to miss the mark with some bars. I did on this one and for that I’m sorry. I’ll be more careful in (the) future with my words.”
