The action delivered as advertised last night (Sat., Sept. 26, 2020) at UFC 253 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Flash Forum on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., when Israel Adesanya steamrolled Paulo Costa to the tune of a second-round TKO finish (highlights HERE).

In addition to Adesanya’s masterful title defense, Polish light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz captured the vacant 205-pound belt with a vicious TKO finish over Dominick Reyes (see it HERE), and surging flyweight contender Brandon Royval looked like a man possessed in his second-round submission win over Kai Kara-France.

Not to mention the monstrous debut of Ludovit Klein and his 76-second knockout finish over Shane Young (highlights HERE).
