Watch Israel Adesanya soak in masterclass performance against Paulo Costa at UFC 253

UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya did exactly what he said he’d do at UFC 253 – maybe even better.

Adesanya (20-0 MMA, 9-0 UFC) finished Paulo Costa to retain his title this past weekend, using his movement, speed and technique to score a flawless second-round TKO over the formerly unbeaten Brazilian.

The “Last Stylebender” is known to be a visionary, and after saying he’d make it look easy on the night, he reflected on his moment by walking across the octagon post-fight and taking it all in.

In less than three years with the UFC, the undefeated champion has risen to superstardom, picking up nine wins, notching seven bonuses and successfully defending his title twice.
