The fighter from New Zealand once again won by a unanimous refereeing decision, retaining the medium-weight title.



The UFC 276 event took place this morning (Sunday) in Las Vegas, providing one of the most intriguing fights of the year in MMA.

Israel Adsenia, the undisputed middleweight champion and one of the most impressive fighters in history, met Jared Cannonier who claims the crown. 

The New Zealander who, as always, delivers a show, on or off the arena, has gone into battle with the song "Undertaker" one of the recently retired WWE legends playing in the background.

In the battle itself Adsania defeated Canonier by a unanimous referee decision after five rounds.

The excellent warrior used his long body, and body movements to prevent a cannonier from hitting him, and used precise punches and kicks to create an advantage for himself.

This is the champion's third consecutive victory, defending the belt - but he has won all the recent battles by referees' decisions, and he is a fighter we have become accustomed to seeing impressive knockouts from in the past.

At the end, the colorful fighter challenged Alex Pereira - this is the only person who managed to beat Adsenia by knockout, it happened in a kickboxing battle before he started fighting MMA professionally.
