One of the most bitter days in the history of Israel adesanya got a new chapter. O 'mma mania' released images that reveal the reaction of the former middleweight champion (up to 83,9kg.) moments after losing the belt against Sean Strickland No. UFC 293. The athlete is supported by his parents, coach Eugene Bareman and even Dana White.

In the scene (see below), it is possible to see Adesanya's expression as he walks backstage at the arena. The athlete, however, made a promise to his parents to take back the middleweight title.

Facing Dana White, Israel showed sportsmanship when evaluating Strickland's achievement. The athlete supported the achievement due to its importance for the United States.

“Thank you for making the fight happen. This is part of the story. It’s a good story for him (Strickland) and for America,” Adesanya said.


No UFC 293, Israel entered the octagon as a big favorite against Sean. The Nigerian, however, was far from his best performances and ended up dominated by his rival for most of the five rounds played.

The stumble marked the end of Adesanya's second reign in the division. The previous year, the combatant had already suffered a stumbling block in the face of Alex Poatán, but regained the throne in the immediate rematch.
