This past weekend the UFC scored big with two title fights that absolutely delivered for fans around the planet tuning in!
Adesanya was able to shut the mouths of anyone out here who had even the slightest doubt in their mind that he wouldn’t be able to defend the title! Scoring a big TKO finish Adesanya moves forward as a force to be reckoned with and may even be the next PPV Star the UFC has been waiting for since McGregor!
It was nice to see Adesanya pay his respects to one of his idols and a true legend that people have been comparing Adesanya to in Anderson “The Spider” Silva. With Costa now out of the way it would be no surprise if we see Adesanya defend his Middleweight title for quite some time!
Sealing a record of 20 Professional MMA wins Adesanya also reached another level this weekend as he checked off his 100th professional fight between kickboxing and MMA!
Even with Jones vacating the LHW title it seems a lot of us would be open to seeing what would happen if we put Jon Jones and Israel Adesanaya up against one another. However Jones is insisting that he has his eyes set on the Heavyweight Division. Jones has been discussing the move up for some time now going back to his last victory over Daniel Cormier where he called out Brock Lesnar in one of the best UFC Post fight Promos we have seen in a long time!
Below is a list of some of the best tweets that were sent out by other big stars of the sport including the former LHW Champion Jon Jones who had what it felt to be around 50 or so tweets throughout the night!
Who do you see next for Adesanya and Blachowicz? Comment below! Also who is Jones fighting at Heavyweight and should he let that go and set his sights on Adesanya like both men flirted with just a few months prior to UFC 253?
