Nigerian-born UFC fighter, Israel Adesanya has described his victory over Alex Pereira as a sweet revenge.
Adesanya reclaimed the UFC middleweight title from Pereira in the main event of UFC 287 at the FTX Arena in Miami, Florida on Sunday morning.
The knockout came from nowhere as Pereira was initially on the offense.
Pereira was unleashing body hooks and a knee to the ribs, with Adesanya backed against the cage, when the challenger threw a right hook out of nowhere!!
It froze Pereira, so similar to the end of the first round in their last fight, but this time there was no buzzer to save Pereira; the next punch dropped him, and he was out cold after the fist.
Adesanya then celebrated by imitating firing arrows at his rival.
Speaking after the fight, the UFC fighter said the hunter had become the hunted.
In a post fight interview, the Nigerian-born said: “This is a sweet sweet victory and you know I have a sweet tooth. The hunter is now the hunted.”
