Israel Adesanya is still a UFC Middleweight Champion.

Adesanya defeated challenger Jared Cannonier on Saturday at UFC276 in Las Vegas with a unanimous decision.

Adesanya took 49-46, 49-46, 50-45 cards.

"They had a great game plan," Adesagna said of Canonia's team. “It was really hard to follow up.”

Adesanya improved to 12-0 in the middleweight division and is the second longest streak in UFC after Anderson Silva (13-0).

Adesanya called for the next opponent he wanted to fight. Alex Pereira, who beat Adesanya twice in kickboxing. Pereira also fought and won the undercard on Saturday night. Pereira was on the stage of Adesagna's remarks.

"The first thing I told you was an error on my part that spammed my right hand," Adesagna told Pereira. "It was kickboxing .... The next time I hit you, you would skate and freeze like Elsa. Leave it alone."

At the joint main event, Alexander Volkanovsky defeated Max Hollowway in a five-round featherweight title battle and won unanimously.

Volkanovski took 50-45 cards across the board.

Volkanovski landed 199 signature strikes and opened a cut on Holloway's face by the end of the battle.
