A HUGE WIN for Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya aka The Last Stylebender, for knocking out Paulo Costa in the second round to keep his belt in the main event of UFC 253.
From the first round, he kicked and kicked Costa to land points. In the second round, he was even more aggressive, continuing to mercilessly attack the lead leg while also throwing head kicks. Costa stumbled backward and could not recover.
While Adesanya dominated the news, Dawodu was also representing Naija with the Nigerian flag draped around his shoulders, Hakeem Dawodu delivered a speech where he explained he was there representing Nigeria.
His latest win in the UFC goes in line with Adesanya’s prediction that Nigerians will one day take over the MMA and UFC.
Nigeria for the win!
