Adesanya was moving brilliantly until he fell prey to a set of combinations landed by ‘Poatan’. In the final round, ‘Izzy’ looked tired. That’s when Alex Pereira unloaded the bigger shots. Although Adesanya was moving his head, he had consumed some major blows by then.

With almost no defense from Adesanya’s side, the fight was stopped mid-round, turning Alex Pereira into the new UFC middleweight champion. There’s no denying that a rematch between the two will be electrifying. Israel Adesanya deserves a shot at his lost middleweight belt and rival Alex Pereira.
