UFC full fight video: Israel Adesanya scores TKO victory in debut

Watch Israel Adesanya vs. Rob Wilkinson full fight video to watch Adesanya pick up his first UFC win by defeating Wilkinson at UFC 221 on Feb. 11, 2018, in Perth, Australia.

A highly-vaunted kickboxer, the then-28-year-old Adesanya showed flashes of the world champion he would become, overcoming the gritty Wilkinson and finishing him with strikes in the second round. “The Last Stylebender” would go on to defeat Robert Whittaker for the UFC middleweight title 20 months later.

In his most recent bout at UFC 248, Israel Adesanya recorded his first successful title defense with a unanimous decision win over Yoel Romero.
