UFC middleweight: Israel Adesanya Defeats Cannonier to Retain Title

Nigerian-born fighter, Israel Adesanya defeated Jarred Cannonier via unanimous decision on Sunday morning in Las Vegas.

The win sees him retain the UFC middleweight championship title.

Adesanya fought against middleweight contender Jared Cannonier at UFC 276 at the T-mobile Arena.

More so, the win for Adesanya means that he has successfully defended his title five times since then.

His only loss in a fight was during his unsuccessful step up to light heavyweight, losing to then-champion Jan Blachowicz.

Now, in the last round on Sunday morning, Cannonier struggled to get a takedown while Adesanya was cautious as the crowd got restless.

Though Adesanya landed clean jabs, Cannonier fired back with a flurry of punches.

However, Cannonier failed to complete a takedown and lost by unanimous decision.
