#UFC234: Nigerian fighter, Isreal Adesanya defeats his mentor, Anderson Silva

Last night, Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya remained unbeaten in the octagon after he beat middleweight legend, Anderson Silva, in the main event at UFC 234 in Melbourne, Australia.

Silva’s fight with Israel Adesanya was bumped up to the main event
earlier in the day when the originally scheduled bout between
middleweight champ Robert Whittaker and challenger Kelvin Gastelum was
canceled when the champion suffered a hernia.  

Put into the main-event spot, the duo dazzled in a bout filled with
flashy strikes, head games, and near knockouts that barely missed. And
while Silva had more than his fair share of moments, Adesanya is the one
in his prime. And that showed as the bout wore on.

Adesanya was faster and simply landed the bigger shots as he went on
to a unanimous decision victory at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena. The
judges’ scores were 29-28 and a pair of 30-27s for the victor.
