Israel Adesanya is strategic- The last style bender dominated UFC 276, however, fans have declared the Middleweight champion as boring and the masses were witnessed walking out of teh stadium while the match was happening.

The last style bender is a spectacular prodigy of the UFC. The Middleweight champion is known for his slick moves inside the octagon, being calm and unpredictable.

The main witnessed the last style bender dominating The Killa gorilla in 5 round unanimous decision victory. However, a wide majority of UFC fans witnessing the action declared it a boring performance and eventually left the arena.

Chael Sonnen said, “There seems to be a chorus even coming from the smart marks in the cheap seats, the guys that are supposed to know. The guys in the back, fellow fighters, there seems to be this chorus about Adesanya in the way that he’s managing a match – as opposed to trying to finish, that he’s trying to get to the decision.”

“I would argue for you that even the smart marks, even the boys in the back, even the fellow fighters, there’s a level of brilliance that Adesanya’s doing that even they don’t understand. I would argue that for you.”

“We’re seeing greatness and we’re trying to beat him the only way we know how: verbally. We’re trying to hurt his feelings because we can’t beat him in the cage, right? Guys, let’s be fair. Do you really feel that the guy is coasting? If so, where and how do you prove that?”

“Adesanya did not just get here with the punches and the kicks and the cool walkouts and the fun interviews. He got here being very level-headed. He got here by being very strategic and he got here by using his absolute best tools when he’s in combat – not trying to show off, not trying to do new stuff, not trying to get the ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from the crowd. (He’s) trying to win this moment, defend here, attack here, move on to the next frame, rinse and repeat, five times if necessary, and there was a real maturity in the way Adesanya responded.”

Izzy stands as the undisputed middleweight champion with an undefeated streak in the division. He is revered as an Upcoming GOAT of UFC. The Nigerian has sprinted over his opponents and rose to fame when he defeated UFC’s longest title defense, raining champion Anderson Silva who was also his idol.
