Israel Adesanya beats Jared Cannonier to retain his UFC Middleweight title

Israel Adesanya defeated Jared Cannonier over five rounds to retain his middleweight title at UFC 276 in Las Vegas.

Adesanya, 32, used his movement and control of distance to out-strike Cannonier and secure a unanimous decision victory.

“We know who’s next. I’ll put him on skates,” said Adesanya.

The fight has a backstory in that the Brazilian holds two victories over Adesanya in kickboxing before the pair transitioned to MMA.
