‘’No one like him. Class by himself one of us’ Congrats my brother.’’ – The Rock.
Adesanya dominated all five rounds, he did not face an opponent who put him in trouble. Cannonier didn’t even try, he didn’t know what to do against the champion. The fight did not have much action and at the end of the bout the fans reproached both fighters with loud boos.
Adesanya used the length of his arms well to keep his opponent at a distance. The Nigerian did not rush and hurt Cannonier with kicks to the legs and midsection. The first round was dominated by the African.
