Light heavyweight title-holder Jan Blachowicz (28-8) defeated previously undefeated middleweight champion Israel Adesanya (20-1) by unanimous decision at UFC 259 in Las Vegas on Saturday night in Las Vegas, USA.

Blachowicz was awarded an upset unanimous decision victory over Israel Adesanya (20-1) after judges handed scores of 49-46, 49-45 and 49-45 in favor of the Polish champion, allowing Blachowicz to retain his UFC light heavyweight title.

Dominant fourth and fifth rounds were clearly what the doctor ordered for Blachowicz to disrupt Adesanya’s plans in becoming the UFC’s fifth active dual-division champion.

In the other co-main event, Amanda Nunes (21-4) easily defended her featherweight crown by defeating Megan Anderson (11-5). Aljamain Sterling (20-3) won the bantamweight title after Petr Yan (15-2) lost by disqualification. (Los Angeles Times)
