The Hero Fights

Michael Blaustein writes for the New York Post about Israel Adesanya, the UFC fighter.

The Nigeria-born New Zealander is a newcomer to the league, and is getting all of the attention. Adesanya is often compared to Aang, the main character in The Last Airbender, a Nickelodeon cartoon show.

According to this article, both Aang and Israel Adesanya go through a Hero’s Journey towards success, though the path is filled with trials.
