UFC 281 has been an absolute stunner of a card. Crazy fights from top to bottom and the main event sure did live up to its hype. As we’ve seen in this year earlier, Israel Adesanya was winning his title fight against nemesis Alex Pereira until the final minutes of the championship round.

Two more minutes of survival inside the octagon would’ve seen Adesanya defending his title for the sixth time. However, Pereira’s deadly left hand came in clutch to give the Brazilian his third win against Adesanya. Alex “Poatan” Pereira headed into the fight having 2 wins over Adesanya in kickboxing and now he’s made his way into mixed martial arts only to dethrone his rival, Adesanya.

Alex’s knockout win over Adesanya has put the MMA world in chaos. This is The Stylebender’s first loss in MMA as a middleweight fighter. Pros and fans alike are stunned at the outcome of this fight and were short for words. This win of Pereira almost feels like a movie. Almost as if it was written in the stars for “Poatan” to end the dominant reign of Adesanya.
