New, comments

Things went as planned for Octagon newcomer Israel Adesanya earlier tonight (Sat., Feb. 10, 2018) at UFC 221 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Perth Arena in Perth, Australia, when the former professional kickboxer put a bloody end to Australian finisher Rob Wilkinson via second-round TKO.

While “Last Stylebender” didn’t get the highlight reel finish he may have been hoping for, he looked really good in his first UFC appearance. Not only did Adesanya showcase a very solid takedown defense and scrambling ability, but he took his time stalking Wilkinson down and landing the shots that counted to earn him the knockout finish.

With this performance, “Last Stylebender” cashes in on his highly-anticipated debut and captures his biggest career victory to date. We still don’t know what sort of damage he can do heading up the talented middleweight ladder, but this kid could be something special.
