Round Three: Started as a better round for the challenger. Vettori got Adesanya to the ground, took his back and nearly got a rear-naked choke. Adesanya able to turn into him though. We might look back and say that was Vettori's chance. Adesanya got back to work on the feet the rest of the round and Vettori's lead leg is chewed up from kicks. 30-27 Adesanya. To the fourth we go.
Round Two: Another good round for the champion. Vettori is implementing his game plan, he's staying on Adesanya. Pressure. Putting his back on the fence. Looking for takedowns. Adesanya is just so defensively sound so far. Avoiding shots, defending takedowns. And clean striking in between. 20-18 Adesanya.
Round One: Good round for the champ. Efficient as always. Surrendered a takedown, but didn't let Marvin Vettori hold him there 10-9 Adesanya after R1.
