You may find it interesting to know that Israel Adesanya referred to his victory over Alex Pereira, according to data acquired from Vanguard, as “sweet retribution.” It was learned that since their initial kickboxing encounter in 2017, Adesanya has been hiding in the Brazilian’s shadow.
Izzy’s right hand delivered a single powerful punch that put out Pereira’s lights before returning the belt to the Nigerian. It resembled the fight in November when Pereira had Adesanya trapped and began throwing body strikes and head kicks before landing the winning punch.
Adesanya responded quickly, which caught Pereira off guard and sent him to sleep in the same way it had Adesanya when they had first met in kickboxing. “You are aware of my fondness for desserts, and this is a nice victory. Adesanya made a statement inside the octagon during his post-fight interview. The hunter is currently the prey.”
