Israel Adesanya, the former UFC champion, has been released after he was detained at a New York airport following an attempt to go through security with brass knuckles.



Recall that Adesanya was arrested on Wednesday at JFK Terminal for possessing metal knuckles.

Brass knuckles, whether made of metal or plastic, are illegal in New York, and their possession is considered a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison plus fines.

A statement by Adesanya’s manager, Tim Simpson of Paradigm Sports Management, disclosed that the Nigerian-New Zealand mixed martial artist has already been released and has been flown home to New Zealand.

“Israel was handed a gift by a fan, which he put in his luggage,” Simpson said in the statement. "When the item was flagged at the airport, Israel quickly disposed of it and cooperated with authorities."

“He has complied accordingly; with that, the matter was dismissed, and he is on his way home,” he said.

He suffered a loss of the UFC middleweight title to Alex Pereira in what was only his second career defeat.
