Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa headlined UFC 253 on pay-per-view (PPV) from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi earlier tonight.

The pair competed for the UFC middleweight championship, with “Stylebender” putting his 185-pound crown up for grabs yet again. Adesanya and Costa had a heated rivalry leading into the fight, and finally got to settle the score. The defending champion made it look easy against the Brazilian powerhouse, putting him away late in the second round.

Adesanya’s seasoned striking was on full display, notching him yet another successful defense of his middleweight title. Now, the mixed martial arts (MMA) pros have taken to social media to voice their thoughts on how things played out on Fight Island.

Check out how the pros reacted to the lopsided performance from Adesanya here below:

After an outstanding performance that saw Adesanya chop away at Costa’s lead leg, leading up to the second round TKO, the talk will now turn to what comes next for “The Last Stylebender.” Post-fight, Adesanya suggested he was looking forward to a bout with Jared Cannonioer, if the American is able to get past a tough match-up with Robert Whittaker convincingly.
