BREAKING! Nigerian Boxer, Israel Adesanya Loses Fight Against Polish Blackhowicz

Blachowicz denied UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya’s attempt to make history by using his wrestling to secure a unanimous decision victory and retain his light heavyweight title at UFC 259 on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

Blachowicz was caught in a high-octane kickboxing chess match early but decided to commit to taking down Adesanya in the final two rounds to earn scores of 49-45, 49-45 and 49-46. It prevented Adesanya from becoming a two-division champion and proved that the Polish fighter is the king of the 205-pound division.

Amanda Nunes once again proved that she is arguably the greatest mixed martial artist on the planet — male or female — with an utter wipeout of Megan Anderson. After hurting her early with a right hand, Nunes swiftly went in for the kill and sunk in an armbar to get the easy first-round submission.

In the third title fight on the card, Aljamain Sterling became the UFC bantamweight champion in disappointing fashion when Petr Yan was disqualified for an illegal knee in the fourth round of their title showdown. Yan was ahead on the scorecards before he made the inexplicable mistake of firing a knee on a downed Sterling. With Sterling unable to continue, the fight was called off and the #1 contender ended up being crowned the champion.
