How Israel Adesanya defeated Cannonier
Meanwhile, Israel Adesanya has retained the UFC middleweight title after defeating Jared Cannonier via unanimous decision (49-46, 49-46, 50-45) in the wee hours of Sunday.

The defending champion landed clean jabs, Cannonier fired back with a flurry of punches, but the American failed to complete a takedown and lost by unanimous decision.
