Israel Adesanya Beats Kelvin Gastelum via Decision in UFC 236 Co-Main Event

Israel Adesanya claimed the interim UFC middleweight championship belt via unanimous decision over Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event of UFC 236 in Atlanta on Saturday.

Gastelum set the tone by taking the first round.

He even scored a knockdown to highlight the frame, but it set the table for Adesanya to show whether he could adjust in the second round:

The takedown defense answered a serious question about Adesanya as he continues to reveal to fans more of his game:
