A left hook staggered Adesanya and that spelled the beginning of the end as Pereira just unloaded a barrage of punches continuously.

Adesanya fell to the ground for a moment but managed to stagger back to his feet only for Pereira to continue knock out punches until referee Marc Goddard saw enough to rescue the Nigerian fighter before he took further damage.

“I feel so blessed,” Pereira said about his victory. “I worked so hard for this. Sorry to everybody that I had to post some stuff, I had to do a little bit of trash talk this time. But I had to get in his head to get this fight.”
