Israel Adesanya

Israel Adesanya brushed aside the challenge of Jared Cannonier in a masterclass of technical precision at UFC 276.

 

The middleweight champion’s clash with his American challenger never quite ignited and Cannonier struggled to lay a finger on the elusive Kiwi for large sections of the contest.

 

Adesanya, who thrilled fans with a homage to WWE star The Undertaker in his walkout, was too fast and intelligent for his challenger but whet the appetite for his next defence.

 

‘The first time I had you on skates, next time I’ll have you Frozen, like Elsa’, he said to Alex Pereira – the only man to have ever knocked him out – who obliterated Sean Strickland earlier in the night to earn what will inevitably be a title shot.
