UFC 230 Results: Israel Adesanya Crushes Derek Brunson, Proves He’s the Real Deal

Kickboxing stud Israel Adesanya has had a good 2018. Three trips to the Octagon has resulted in three wins, and his foray into the UFC 230 cage yielded yet another “W”. This time the victim was Derek Brunson – a step up in competition.

It’s time to give Adesanya another step up in competition.
