Moscow, April 9 – New Zealander Israel Adesanya, who regained the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) title, turned after the fight to the son of his opponent, Brazilian Alex Pereira, to simulate the knockout of his opponent.
On Sunday, Adesanya defeated Pereira by knockout at UFC 287 in Miami (USA). Before this fight, the athletes fought twice according to the rules of kickboxing, both times the Brazilian fighter was stronger (on points and by knockout). In November 2022, Pereira defeated Adesanya at UFC 281 in New York (5th round TKO). After Pereira’s victory in kickboxing, the Brazilian’s son entered the ring and imitated the knockout in front of Adesanya’s eyes. Having regained his UFC middleweight title on Sunday, the New Zealander walked to the edge of the octagon, pointed a finger at Pereira’s son sitting in the hall, and fell, depicting the knockout blow to one of the challengers.
