Israel Adesanya showed last night why he's probably still the last stylebender alive as he completely took out Paulo Costa in defence of his his middleweight title.
After several months of trading verbal verbal shots at each other, Adesanya wasted no time in showing who was the undisputed king of the UFC as he won by TKO in the second round in the main event of UFC 253.
The win ensured his perfect record of 20 wins in 20 matches in the Mixed Martial Arts remains.
Adesanya said after the fight, "This is the game we play, this is violence and I told you guys that it was going to be violent and I said it, it's going to be violent and it's going to end fast and that's what I did. I'm fresh, I can go next weekend, I can go anytime. I want to spend time with my family because it's been a crazy year, so I want to go spend time with my people."
