Israel Adesanya entered UFC 243 as a slight favorite over middleweight champ Robert Whittaker in Australia on Saturday night.

And then he went out and showed everyone why as he finished Whittaker in the second round with a flurry of beautiful strikes that sent the champ to the ground and led to the end of Whittaker’s impressive title reign.

Now Adesanya’s stardom is only going to grow and rightfully so because what a talent he is. He controlled the first round and then won it in the second and always looked comfortable against a great champion.

Adesanya had fun celebrating his big win moments after the fight was stopped:
