Isreal Adesanya destroys his long time nightmare Alex Pereira by Knock-outs to regain the UFC middleweight title.
Isreal Adesanya has defeated Alex Pereira to reclaim the UFC middleweight belt in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 287.
Adesanya who losses two times in a kick-boxing fight with Alex Pereira, moved on to MMA where he became the middleweight Champion until November 2022 when Alex beat him up again and took his middleweight title.
But the Nigerian born New Zealander took his title back at the FTX arena, Miami, Florida, by knocking out his long time nightmare Alex Pereira in the fourth minute of the second round of their fight last night, April 19.
Out of the blue, the knockout occurred while Pereira was in the middle of his offensive assault. He was launching body hooks and a knee to the ribs, pinning Adesanya against the cage, when suddenly the contender unleashed a right hook that caught Pereira completely off guard!
The blow stunned Pereira, much like the conclusion of their previous bout’s first round, but this time there was no time clock to rescue Pereira. The following punch caused him to collapse, and he remained unconscious from the impact.
After engaging in four fights over a period of seven years, ‘The Last Stylebender’ has finally achieved a remarkable victory over Pereira in a stunning manner.
