VIDEO: Watch the moment Israel Adesanya KO Paulo Costa to retain UFC middleweight title

Israel Adesanya has retained his UFC middleweight title after knocking out Paulo Costa in the 2nd round in Dubai.

After much talks the main event at the UFC 253 happened between the fighters and it lived up to its hype.

And Israel Adesanya got the better of Paulo Costa with his second round win.

After the match he said: “I know this game, I don’t just play this on EA Sports, I play this for real, so when I do this, I know what I’m talking about.

“I still have to watch it again, little bit sloppy, but I’m a dog and I do what I do

“I still don’t like him. I don’t know him personally, I don’t wish he dies or anything, he’s alive, I let him be alive

This is the game we play, this is violence and I told you guys that it was going to be violent and I said it, it’s going to be violent and it’s going to end fast and that’s what I did. I’m fresh, I can go next weekend, I can go anytime.

“I want to spend time with my family because it’s been a crazy year, so I want to go spend time with my people.

“Cannonier, I want Cannonier next.”
