Isreal Adesanya defeats Vettori to retain UFC Middleweight Belt
Israel Adesanya retained his middleweight title on Sunday morning by defeating Marvin Vettori via unanimous decision in the headline bout at UFC 263 at Gila River Arena in Arizona.
Adesanya, who prevailed against the Italian by split decision in 2018, was superior throughout, taking the fight 50-45 on all three scorecards.
It took the Nigeria-born champion’s professional record to 21-1, with Adesanya rebounding from his first pro loss – the points defeat to light heavyweight title-holder Jan Blachowicz in March. It marked Adesanya’s third successful defence of his middleweight crown.
