Costa had described Adesanya as “skinny”, saying the middleweight champion would be no match for him.

In response, Adesanya told his opponent “if I grab your neck, trust me, I’m never going to give you back,”. This, he said at a pre-fight press conference.

The New Zealand based Nigerian finally earned his 20th career MMA victory and retained his title with a second-round knockout of the Brazilian Paulo Costa.
