Adesanya Loses UFC belt to Sean
It was a defeating morning for the Nigerian-born UFC boxer, Israel Adesanya as he lost the UFC middleweight belt to Sean Strickland.
Sean drops Israel Adesanya with a punch in the first round of the UFC middleweight championship fight during the UFC 293 event at Qudos Bank Arena on Sept. 10, 2023 in Sydney, Australia.
Sean Strickland dropped and nearly finished Israel Adesanya late in the first round of their middleweight title fight Sunday in Sydney, Australia, in the main event of UFC 293.
Strickland then went on to score one of the biggest upsets in UFC history by winning a unanimous decision over Adesanya largely by defusing Adesanya’s offense. It was a jab and a right hand and a great defense that led Strickland to the win.
Judges scored it 49-46 on all cards for Strickland. Adesanya had the second round.
A blistering straight right hand dropped Adesanya hard late in the first round. Strickland was on top of him immediately and firing away, but referee Marc Goddard gave Adesanya a lot of leeway and he survived the round.
But Strickland continually marched forward, kept his guard up and never allowed Adesanya to get untracked.
