Followers scream as Israel Adesanya cruises to a one-sided victory over Jared Cannonier

LAS VEGAS – Jared Cannonier principally stored his palms to himself Saturday in the principle occasion of UFC 276 in his middleweight title combat in opposition to Israel Adesanya at T-Cellular Enviornment.

And it earned him a one-sided loss and the enmity of the sellout crowd of 19,649.

Adesanya is a counter-attacker and Cannonier did not throw a lot, which led to heavy tackles all through the match and followers flashing their telephone flashlights and holding them up within the latter levels.

Adesanya clearly received the combat with out an excessive amount of bother, however he did not look good doing it primarily as a result of Cannonier made it so tough for him.

He tried to push the motion slightly late, however it’s not his fashion and it wasn’t working that nicely.

Adesanya needed to placed on a present as a result of his potential subsequent opponent, Alex Pereira set the web on hearth with a wild knockout of Sean Strickland. Pereira, who beat Adesanya twice in kickboxing and knocked him out as soon as, brutally put Strickland away.

Pereira caught Strickland with a left hook. As Strickland went down, Pereira hit him with two proper palms. Strickland got here proper out.

This can doubtless put him within the subsequent combat with Adesanya. However Adesanya didn’t have the sort of fireworks he would have preferred.

He was reducing Cannonier’s legs and going from southpaw to standard and again foot repeatedly. He would sometimes hit together with his proper hand, however there was nothing spectacular about what he was doing.

However he clearly received the combat, so he did what he needed to do, and arrange his matchup with Pereira which goes to be very fascinating due to the historical past between them.

Nevertheless, it’ll go down as an enormous missed alternative for Cannonier, who by no means actually broke out and made it a troublesome combat to look at.
