UFC 293 sees Strickland deliver a surprise victory over Israel Adesanya, earning him the title of middleweight champion.

Strickland dropped “The Last Stylebender” early on and never looked back.

The mixed martial arts industry and Israel Adesanya were stunned by Sean Strickland’s performance.

Despite dropping Adesanya in the first round, the American fighter was determined to overcome him with unwavering determination and steady upright boxing to become the new middleweight world champion. The judges scored it with a score of 49-46 in their unanimous decision at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

After his most significant triumph in his career, Strickland remarked in the Octagon: “I’m questioning if I’ll wake up or even fall asleep because of an assault.”

Adesanya’s left-right movement during the first round of the fight caught attention from Strickland, a fifth-ranked middleweight heavyweight. The opponent responded by dropping him with force after he clearly injured himself and turned away from his opponent.

Strickland maintained his forward-fighting pressure and consistently produced poised boxing to keep Adesanya on the ground around the Octagon. This constant movement caused him to feel unsupported and frustrated, as he never truly felt like executing the striking technique described in “The Last Stylebender.”

Despite the challenges, Strickland maintained her footwork and successfully caught Adesanya with precise jabs that would have won comfortably on the judges’ scorecards, significantly altering the UFC.

This is the summary of UFC 293: Adesanya vs. Strickland bout.
