30-year-old Nigerian born Israel Adesanya’s unbeaten career stands strong in the sport after he knocked out Robert Whittaker in round two to become the undisputed middleweight champion at the Marvel Stadium in Melbourne, Australia.
The 30-year-old mixed martial artist stretch his unbeaten run in the UFC 243 rings to 18 bouts – 14 by knockouts and just four by referees decisions.
Despite coming into this fight as an underdog, Adesanya left with the belt just after the second round of the fight.
However, the highlight of the fight was not when the fighter knocked out Whittaker, but when his parents dressed in all white jumped in celebration of their son’s feat.

While the father raised his two hands in excitement, Israel’s mum at some point went down on her knees and probably thanking God for the success of her son in the fight.
After his victory was announced, the entire family stepped into the rings to take a picture with their son on the UFC rings.
