Israel Adesanya was on the sting of his seat watching City Kickboxing teammate Alexander Volkanovski defend his title at UFC 266.
In what was largely a dominant efficiency by Volkanovski (23-1 MMA, 10-0 UFC), the featherweight champion was put in a number of compromising positions by jiu-jitsu ace Brian Ortega (15-2 MMA, 7-2 UFC), who nearly choked him out in Round 3.
Adesanya was dropping his thoughts whereas watching Volkanovski fend off each a guillotine choke and triangle try by Ortega, however the Aussie was capable of battle out of them and retain his title in a “Fight of the Night” struggle.
