Adesanya, in the meantime, bagged 4 official knockdowns throughout his in his middleweight title battle with Kelvin Gastelum again in April 2019.
“Most knockdowns in a UFC World Title Combat,” McGregor wrote within the caption for one in every of his posts. “Scientific taking pictures. I’ve surpassed this degree, a number of occasions over. Excited to showcase!”
