(Full Video)Nigerian Israel Adesanya Defeats Anderson Silva at the UFC.

Israel Adesanya is a Nigerian born middle weight championship boxer.

He beat Anderson silver with a unanimous decision and is now perceived as the number 1 contender for UfC’s Middle weight title.

The reigning champion Robert Whittaker was hospitalised before his scheduled defence against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 234 in Melbourne.

Now Israel is heading for the belt as he declared after the fight;

“I’m the guy fighting for the belt,” Adesanya said. “I don’t care – Kelvin or Rob, who ever it is, I’m fighting for the belt – whoever has the belt…I’m fighting for the belt next, that’s all I know. I did my job, I showed up to work.”
Both athletes earned a US$50,000 bonus from the fight which was named fight of the night.

The 29-year-old Kiwi remained unbeaten in MMA with a unanimous decision win over Silva at a sold out Rod Laver Arena.

Although He might not have finished Silva the way most people expected, but he faced and beat the greatest middleweight in UFC history and that is living out a dream.

Quoting him after the fight :

“For a basketballer, this is like playing against Michael Jordan. This is it for me.”
