Adesanya beats Vettori to retain middleweight belt

Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya has defeated Marvin Vettori for the second time to retain his middleweight strap.

Adesanya’s fight early Sunday ended by a unanimous decision after he edged the hard fighting Italian (21-1).

It was a striking clinic by Adesanya, and though Vettori (17-5-1) was able to score take-downs, he could not capitalize.

Ten minutes into the fight, the leggy Nigerian succeeded in wearing out his opponent pummeling his right leg and pounding him with leg kicks.

A fatigued Vettori failed to adjust and Adesanya’s low calf kick proved vicious.

Although the Italian attempted to use a similar game plan deployed by Jan Blachowicz against Adesanya, he just doesn’t have the size or strength to pull it off.
