After two years and seven fights in the middleweight division, Israel Adesanya becomes UFC’s new middleweight champion.

In the main event, the interim champion Adesanya and the middleweight champion Whittaker clashed in a pivotal fight in front of 57,000 fans inside the Marvel Stadium. The win shifted the divisions momentum and takes on a new path with Adesanya as the new champion. Whittaker was explosive from the start, leaping in and out of the punches. But the his range and Adesanya’s head movement made it difficult for him to land any significant strike. Adesanya countered Whittaker’s every move with his out-of-the-world head movement. Whittaker was all game for stand and bang but with wide openings in his striking, Adesanya was able to land some heavy shots that saw him drop to the mat by the end of the first round. Whittaker kept lunging forward and Adesanya moved like air from one angle to another.  “The Last Stylebender” unloaded a beautiful right hand that wobbled Whittaker and then followed with a  left hand to eventually drop him on the canvas in the second round.
