Longtime UFC fan Steven Adams the most excited of the Thunder players at UFC fight night

Longtime UFC fan Steven Adams is part of a group of Oklahoma City Thunder players attending the UFC Fight Night 143 in New York headlined by the T.J.Dillashaw and Henry Cejudo fight.

Five players including Adams, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, Jerami Grant and Raymond Felton appeared in the front row at UFC in a tweeted video.

Adams appeared to be teasing his teammates about their status as UFC fans in the start of the video.

The big Kiwi has been a longtime fan of MMA, tweeting about events regularly and even putting down his renowned strength on court to his study of jiu-jitsu.

The Thunder players had travelled up from Philadelphia to be at the event in Brooklyn after their thrilling 117-115 win over the 76ers.

After the win, Westbrook interrupted Adams’ media session with questions about the UFC fight before the Kiwi muttered that he was a "rude bastard".
