In an ode to The Undertaker, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya walked out to the WWE legend’s iconic theme music on Saturday before his main-event victory over Jared Cannonier at UFC 276 in Las Vegas.

Adesanya’s entrance had all of the bells and whistles, including purple lighting, a slow, methodical walk, a black hat and an urn. The urn had “Jared” inscribed on it. Adesanya won the fight by unanimous decision.

Adesanya’s walkout called to mind a similarly theatrical entrance from last September, when UFC featherweight Brian Ortega had a “Purge” themed walkout.

The spectacle was not missed by WWE brass, despite the company’s “Money in the Bank” event being located at the MGM Grand Hotel just down the road. As soon as the event was over, Vince McMahon, Paul Levesque (Triple H), Stephanie McMahon, and Pat McAfee entered the arena.

McAfee was sporting a neck brace after being attacked at the end of “Money in the Bank” by Happy Corbin. The two will have a match at “SummerSlam” on July 30 in Nashville.
