At the main event at The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale, he fought against a tremendous Middleweight contender Brad Tavares. Almost everybody was thinking the opponent is tough but not Israel Adesanya himself. The decorated kickboxer from New Zealand surprised all \u201cwise men\u201d at the Pearl Theatre in Las Vegas on Friday night, when he scored a unanimous decision victory. The judges scored the fight 49-46, 50-45, 50-45, which made him progress to the score of 14-0 MMA and 3-0 UFC. (via MMAFighting.com) \u201cAll the pundits, and all the experts said \u2018too soon, he\u2019s only had two fights in the UFC,\u2019\u201d Adesanya said. \u201cHe\u2019s a tough dude. These islanders, they have tough heads.\u201d Israel Adesanya has already built a reputation by defeating big and dangerous opponents \u2013 just remember his impressive victory over Melvin Guillard. This fight wasn\u2019t much different \u2013 Adesanya was circling and delivering his world-class stand-up strikes with maximum precision not letting his opponent lead the game. On the other side, Brad Tavares was simply unable to demonstrate his superb wrestling skills this time. In the second round, Tavares was able to deliver solid overhead counter punches but Israel Adesanya rocked him with a liver kick and sent him to the ground. Since that moment, only one fighter was dominating the octagon - The Last Stylebender. https:\/\/twitter.com\/ufc\/status\/1015464746605146112 https:\/\/twitter.com\/ufc\/status\/1015466510712692736 Adesanya demonstrated the brutality of his elbows in the fourth round when he cut Brad Tavares open with a slashing right elbow which opened up a cut on his face. The referee called the timeout and checked Tavares before letting him continue the fight. https:\/\/twitter.com\/ufc\/status\/1015467645510938624 From that moment, Tavares was a lot weaker.
