Israel Adesanya's prized possessions include a dazzling McLaren 720s Spider.

'The Last Stylebender' recently made a video with GQ Sports where he talked about how he spent his first million dollars in the UFC. At one point during the video, Adesanya started talking about his McLaren supercar and said that he originally intended to buy a Lamborghini but he did not feel too comfortable in it.

Adesanya also revealed that the inspiration for his customized supercar came from the popular anime show 'Naruto':

"The car itself looks like a spitting image of Kurama, the nine-tail demon fox, from the series 'Naruto'. So, it was meant to be, that was my tilt beast. I named it Kurama as well. And that set me back about half a million," said Israel Adesanya.
