Nigerian MMA fighter, Israel Adesanya defeated Brazil’s Paulo Costa with a second-round TKO win to retain his UFC middleweight title in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night, September 26.

The middleweight undefeated champion, 31, battered Costa’s front leg with multiple kicks to quiet the Brazilian fighter’s trash-talking in the first round of the main event on Fight Island.

In the second round, Adesanya opened up Costa’s face with a high kick and then finished the challenger with punches.

Costa, 29, stumbled backward and could not recover as he was left bloodied and bruised on the canvas.
