Andrade El Idolo Could Have Plans For La Sombra Mask In AEW

Andrade El Idolo arrived in AEW after Double or Nothing. He will have his first sit-down interview segment next week to further explain his intentions in All Elite Wrestling, but plenty of fans are talking about him already. Many dream matches are now possible with Andrade in AEW.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that there is some talk about Andrade wearing his La Sombra mask to the ring for his matches in AEW, but then he will take his mask off before the match starts.

“I think that I’ve heard that he may walk to the ring in the Sombra mask, but he’ll wrestle without the mask. That type of a thing, maybe.”

Andrade did have a La Sombra mask pendant on his necklace during the video package that aired on AEW Dynamite. He also owns that name and mask and can use it however he likes. AEW is all about tradition and honoring lucha libre by implementing the La Sombra mask in Andrade’s character would fit the company’s usual game plan.

We’ll have to see what happens in this situation, but there are plenty of options for Andrade El Idolo once he gets going in AEW.

What’s your take on Andrade in AEW? Were you surprised? Sound off in the comments!

Mark Henry On Braun Strowman To AEW: “There's Interest On Both Sides”

After joining up with AEW earlier this month, Mark Henry spoke with TMZ Sports about some other wrestlers who he’d like to sign with the company. Two high up on his list — Braun Strowman and W. Morrissey (fka Big Cass).

Strowman was among WWE’s budgetary cuts earlier this month and Henry said he’s looking forward to AEW talking with him in the near future.

“[He’s] super high on my list,” Henry responded about Braun. “It’s not an all Mark Henry decision, but there’s already interest on both sides. So, hopefully by the time he’s allowed to wrestle in August — I think the middle of August — we can have a serious conversation about contractual things. But right now there’s interest on both sides.”

As noted, Strowman is currently asking for $20,000-$25,000, plus first class airfare, a two-night hotel stay, all meals and ground transportation covered for each appearance.

Henry also mentioned wanting W. Morrissey to come to All Elite Wrestling, but he’s currently under contract with Impact Wrestling.

“Big Cass, too!” Henry continued. “I love that dude, but I don’t want to talk to people when they have contracts with people. I don’t think that’s fair.”

Morrissey commented last month that his contract with Impact is not long-term. He defeated Rich Swann on last night’s Impact Against All Odds.

Nate Diaz is the UFC's ultimate lovable loser

A brief recap Nate Diaz’s UFC 263 experience:

  • Smokes weed (his own personal brand) at the prefight press conference.

  • Enters the Octagon as a +365 underdog at BetMGM, an aging working man’s hero against a far more skilled welterweight from England named Leon Edwards.

  • Gets beaten and bloodied for 24-plus minutes — with literally three separate deep gushers that would have caused most mortals to tap out but Diaz to hardly blink. Additionally, there is a left leg that looks half broken due to Edwards kicks.

  • Survives mainly by clowning, preening, posturing, trash talking and whatever else it took to stay upright as blood drained down his face and neck, as announcer Joe Rogan put it.

  • Absolutely rocked Edwards with a final-minute, desperation combo that was as unorthodox as it was vicious — right-handed slap (straight outta Stockton) and vicious left that put Edwards nearly out on his feet. “He wobbled me,” Edwards said.

  • Nearly wins but can’t finish the deal, probably because he screws around too much in the final fleeting seconds, taunting Edwards rather than attacking full blast. “I wish I had took his ass the [expletive] out,” Diaz said.

  • Loses on all scorecards, 49-46.

  • Invites everyone — literally everyone — to his house for a "fat ass" party. It will be sponsored by an alcohol company he can't remember the name of — "Daddy, uh, daddy drinks," he calls it. (AKA: Nelk Boys Happy Dad Seltzer.)

  • Leaves to the same roaring cheers that he arrived.

Nate Diaz has won just a single fight in five years and it doesn’t even matter. He got pummeled on Saturday night and it doesn’t even matter. He looked “like a horror movie,” as Rogan put it, and it doesn’t even matter.

He was a wreck, outclassed in every facet of the game except for the one that has always defined him — toughness.

There he was in the end, making an opponent finish the job. He never quits. He never seems fazed. If you don’t drop him (or get a doctor to stop it) he’ll go all 25, force the broadcasters to talk about his triathlon hobby and remain dangerous to the bitter end.

The fans will love him even more after what was otherwise a lopsided loss because no matter the odds nor the reality, Nate Diaz comes and gives them what they want. He’s the throwback to a simpler time in the sport, when the fighters weren’t refined killing machines such as Edwards. He’s rough around the edges in every way — personality and fighting style.

It’s why he remains on the all-time box office draws for the UFC, an authentic marketing machine that delivers every time on his promises — namely not caring about anything.

Diaz is 36 and has been in the fight game since 19. He has one fight left on his UFC contract, but despite the lack of wins — or fights at all — has the promotion where he wants it.

Edwards is the future of MMA but Diaz is the bank. Does Diaz get the trilogy with Conor McGregor? Does he get another shot at Jorge Masvidal, who bloodied him up back in 2019, with no less than the president of the United States watching? Does he find some other contender that intrigues him?

Or does he get to bounce into the lucrative world of these celebrity boxing deals — the pay-per-view potential of Nate Diaz vs. Jake Paul is breathtaking. That is if Paul would dare.

Who knows? He might just go back to Stockton and ride his bike and smoke for another year. Anything is possible because Diaz somehow manages to create the entertaining mayhem that mixed martial arts is built on.

All credit to Leon Edwards, who was brilliant, has now gone ten fights without a loss and is destined for a welterweight title shot.

Edwards won the fight.

Nate Diaz won the night though. And that was before whatever went down at that house party.

Former Alabama QB Mac Jones earns interesting nickname with Patriots teammates

Former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones slid well past his projecting landing spot of No. 3 overall to the San Francisco 49ers, he was instead selected No. 15 by Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.

Jones is expected to sit behind former NFL MVP Cam Newton on the depth chart, but could possibly make the move to starter before the end of his rookie season.

There have been multiple reports to come out of Patriots offseason practices that claim Jones is performing well and impressing those around him.

He seems to have become friends with Newton, as Jones explains during a press conference that he has gotten the nickname “Mac ‘N Cheese.”

Colombia Vs Ecuador Prediction, Team News And Copa America Live Stream Details

Colombia will take on Ecuador in the Copa America Group B fixture, which is scheduled to be played on Sunday, June 13 at 9:00 PM local time [Monday, June 14 at 5:30 AM IST]. The match will be played at the Arena Pantanal, Brazil. Here is Colombia vs Ecuador prediction, h2h records, live stream details and Colombia vs Ecuador team news.

Colombia vs Ecuador Match preview

Colombia have not had a great run of form coming into the tournament and they will be hoping to change it with a victory against Ecuador on Sunday. Their last game was a 2-2 draw against a tough Argentina team where they battled it out to draw the game after being 2 goals down. Colombia will be hoping that their Atlanta duo of Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel fire on top of this tournament. They also have a great talent in James Rodriguez, who is a brilliant player capable of doing a lot on the field. His left leg is still lethal and he can be a big attacking threat in the game against Ecuador.

Ecuador have lost their last two games leading to the tournament and they will be hoping that their fortunes change in the opening game against Ecuador. The last time these two teams met, Ecuador slashed 6 goals past the Colombians and they will need something like that in this fixture if they want to overcome the tough Colombian defence. Captain Enner Valencia is going to be a key player in this game and one of the main players for Ecuador. Enner has scored 31 times for them in 57 appearances and will need to fire up front to help them get a win in their first Copa America game

Colombia vs Ecuador team news 

Colombia will field their strongest 11 as they have no major injury problems except for Alfredo Morelos who tested positive for Covid. Ecuador will be playing their strongest team against Colombia on Sunday.

Colombia vs Ecuador h2h record 

The last fixture between the two teams ended in a 6-1 win for Ecuador. That was the first win for  Ecuador in 5 previous meetings against the Colombians. The Colombians hold the superior record overall in this fixture as they have won 24 times as opposed to the 13 wins Ecuador have over them.

Colombia vs Ecuador prediction

The Colombians have a great team and have a lot of quality at each position. Players like Zapata, Cuadrado and Rodriguez are all supremely talented and can be the difference in the game against Ecuador. Considering all that, we predict a 2-0 win for Colombia over Ecuador.

Colombia vs Ecuador live stream: How to watch Copa America 2021 on TV

Copa America will be broadcasted on Fox Sports in English. Live streams will also be available on Fubo TV. Indian fans can now watch the game on Sony Ten and Sony Six channels on TV. The stream will also be available on the Sony Liv app. All the additional details and team news is available on the team's official social media handle.

Poland vs. Slovakia: Euro 2020 live stream, TV channel, how to watch online, news, odds, time

SOPA Images

As far as the 2020 UEFA European Championship title goes, both Poland and Slovakia are long shots to go all the way. However, in a Group E that also contains a redeveloping Spain and a Zlatan Ibrahimovic-less Sweden, both will fancy their chances of advancing in third place or better. Key to both nations' chances will be getting a win here and the Polish are naturally favored due to the presence of Bayern Munich goal machine Robert Lewandowski. The Slovaks still have talismanic captain Marek Hamsik in their ranks, so there is a bit of pedigree on both sides in this one.

Here is how you can watch the match and what to know:

Viewing information

  • Date: Monday, Jun. 14 | Time: 12 p.m. ET
  • Location: Krestovsky Stadium -- Saint Petersburg, Russia
  • TV: ESPN/Univision
  • Live stream: fuboTV (try for free)
  • Odds: POL -120; Draw +220; SVK +450 (via William Hill sportsbook)



Poland are not in their best run of form with just one win from their last seven matches across all competitions, including UEFA Nations League and 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying. Lewandowski was out injured for some of those encounters and Arkadiusz Milik has been ruled out after working hard to build up form with Olympique de Marseille to make the cut for Paulo Sousa's Euro 2020 squad. With three draws from their last five against mainly tournament opposition, they do appear capable of at least avoiding defeat. However, with Spain and then Sweden to come, the Poles need an opening win.


Slovakia needed extra time to beat Northern Ireland to qualify, but have since won against Scotland, in the Nations League and Russia in World Cup qualifying. Stefan Tarkovic's men can mix it with teams who are at this summer's Euro, but they have also lost to the likes of Czech Republic and Israel and failed to be Cyprus, Malta and Bulgaria recently. If the Slovaks are to get anything out of Group E, they will need to beat Poland and make life tough for Spain and Sweden.


Lewandowski the difference as Poland open with a win. Pick: Poland 2-1 Slovakia.

Nate Diaz loses wide decision to Leon Edwards at UFC 263 despite nearly pulling off miracle ...

MMA household name Nate Diaz was bloodied and comfortably conquered on the scorecards by rising welterweight contender Leon Edwards at UFC 263 on Saturday, but nonetheless almost turned it all around at the death.

The UFC's first ever five-rounder to not be for a championship nor in the main event slot of the show saw Britain's Edwards prove himself as in line for a title shot at reigning champ Kamaru Usman as he beat the popular veteran via unanimous decision.

All three judges had Edwards up 49-46 over the five, with a nail-biting final round the only thing preventing a shutout.

In that round, Diaz — who had been picked apart with strikes and busted open by a stiff elbow — caught Edwards hard with a punch that jellied his foe. Diaz followed up with more shots to a retreating Edwards as the crowd in Glendale, Arizona rose to their feet anticipating a grandstand finish to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

However, Edwards was able to weather the late storm and the bout went the distance. His great work in rounds 1-4 ensured a hard-earned victory. Nonetheless, Diaz's trademark showmanship throughout the fight and the blistering eleventh-hour rally likely only served to enhance his legend, even in defeat.

UFC President Dana White said of Diaz after the contest: "His leg was done in the first round, he went five rounds taking leg kicks, bleeding out of both sides of his head. One was squirting this way, one way squirting this way.

"He was still doing what the Diaz brothers do. He was working the whole fight to get into his head and try to make him make a mistake, and then he eventually caught him in the fifth round. He’s unbelievable. He’s gonna be asking us for a six-round fight next time.

“I don’t know (what’s next),” White added when asked who Diaz will face next. “He’s a fan-favorite, people love him win, lose, or draw. I don’t know. We’ll see what’s next.”

"One of the best" - Top female champion heaps praise on AEW star MJF

AEW Women's Champion Britt Baker said that MJF is one of the top wrestling stars in the world today. Baker also spoke about her equation with the leader of The Pinnacle, stating that they both work well together.

Baker is currently sitting at the top of the women's division after defeating Hikaru Shida at Double or Nothing 2021 for the AEW Women's Championship.

Appearing on the podcast, Rasslin' with Brandon Walker, Britt Baker discussed many topics, including why she thinks MJF is one of the best talents in the world.

The Dentist disclosed that they both consider the other to be the top star of their respective division. Baker further stated that she and MJF have a mutual understanding and the capacity to tolerate each other.

"He’s misunderstood. He and I respect each other. He’s one of the best. He’s, I think, one of the top stars in wrestling today, and he thinks I’m one of the top stars in wrestling today. We understand each other, and that’s why we work well together. We tolerate each other, [and] it works.” said Baker (H/T - WrestlingInc)

Not too long ago, MJF spoke about his bond with Britt Baker and even teased that she could be the first female member of The Pinnacle in AEW.

Britt Baker excited about AEW going back on road

Britt Baker further spoke about how excited she is to perform in front of live crowds when AEW goes back on the road from July 7th in Miami.

The AEW Women's Champion said that the 5000 fans at Double or Nothing spoiled them as they were extremely loud and reacted enthusiastically to everything.

"Oh my God, yes,” Baker said enthusiastically. “We were spoiled with that crowd Sunday. Because it was so loud and they were so excited for everything. We still have a couple of more weeks in Jacksonville, and then we start in Miami, I think is the first one, [then] we start touring, hitting the road, hitting the towns, making the towns. And man, I’ve never been more excited for fans again."

Nyla Rose has emerged as the first challenger for Britt Baker's AEW Women's Championship. Though fans predicted Thunder Rosa to step up, the former two-time women's champion will surely be a formidable opponent for The Dentist.

Do you think Britt Baker should join The Pinnacle in AEW? Is Nyla Rose the right opponent for the AEW Women's Champion? Sound off in the comments section below.

That race will be preceded by the Open, where 22 drivers will be battling for three spots in the All-Star Race field. The Open is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, with the All-Star Race set to start at 8:10 p.m. 

Below is how to watch the NASCAR All-Star Race at Texas, including the TV channel and live stream options.

This is Fox and FS1's final race telecast of the season. NBC and NBC Sports Network will take over coverage with the June 20 race at Nashville Superspeedway and keep providing it through the playoffs.

As has been the case for all Cup Series races on Fox and FS1 this season, Mike Joy will call the All-Star Race with analysts Jeff Gordon, Clint Bowyer and Larry McReynolds. Jamie Little, Regan Smith and Vince Welch are Fox/FS1's pit reporters.

FS1 will begin its All-Star Race coverage with "NASCAR RaceDay" at 5 p.m. ET.

What time does the NASCAR All-Star Race start today?

  • Race: NASCAR All-Star Race (and Open) at Texas Motor Speedway
  • Date: Sunday, June 13
  • Start time: 6 p.m. ET (Open) | 8 p.m. ET (All-Star Race)

The green flag for the Open, a qualifying race for drivers who didn't automatically make the All-Star field, will wave shortly after 6 p.m. ET. The Open will set the 18th through 20th positions in the 21-car field.

The 21st and last spot in the field will go the winner of an online fan vote. If the top vote-getter also wins a stage in the Open, then the driver with the second-most votes will get in, and so on, until a driver is chosen.

The All-Star Race is scheduled to start at 8:10 p.m. ET. As of Saturday night, the weather was expected to cooperate. The National Weather Service's nighttime forecast for the track in Fort Worth, Texas, was for clear skies and a low temperature in the low to mid-70s. Daytime temperatures were expected to reach the mid- to upper 90s, however, and the heat index was forecast to climb over 100 degrees.

Davey Richards On Why He Turned Down WWE Offer

Recent MLW signing Davey Richards sat down with the All Real Wrestling Podcast to talk about his comeback to pro wrestling. Richards was asked about any lessons he learned on the road to getting back to the ring, and he stated it was cherishing the opportunity to wrestle again, something he felt he couldn’t do the first time due to several circumstances.

“Thankfulness, definitely thankfulness,” Richards said. “I didn’t cherish the gift that I had in pro wrestling, one because it happened so fast. Two, I can see now that wrestling was a drug for me because my childhood was pretty messed up. My mom was in prison for drugs and my dad wasn’t around and then both my grandparents died. The night I won my first title for TRW wrestling in Abbotsford British Columbia, I was so excited to come and show my grandfather that I’d won a title. It’s a little plastic title but I won a title and he died on the way home and then when I was in Japan. When I was living in Japan for Pro Wrestling NOAH my grandmother died.I didn’t fall into drinking or driving or any of that stuff but to numb the pain of Wes’s I lived in Davey’s (world).

“I lived his days because when people are chanting your name and you’re the best wrestler in the world you don’t have to feel that. There’s plenty of times I would have matches that people remember, like my five star matches, and I’d go home or just go back to the hotel and just cry myself to sleep because I was hurting inside. So I had to step away to actually deal with that and face that. And now I want to return to wrestling for not because I need to but because I want to. So that’s why I say wrestling is emotional for me. It’s very, very deep. It’s not a job first, it’s not a career first, it’s family first because that’s my last connection to my family.”

Prior to stepping away from wrestling, Richards had a successful run with Impact Wrestling (then TNA and Global Force Wrestling) as part of the tag team The American Wolves with longtime partner Eddie Edwards. Richards revealed why the duo chose Impact over WWE and returning to Ring of Honor, where the team had initially found success.

“We had an offer from both WWE and TNA/Impact,” Richards recalled. “We went down to the WWE training facility in Orlando and they were very kind to us, they were very nice. I mean I didn’t have anything and Eddie’s very Boston and you just have to understand his family’s all from there. He was not digging moving to Florida to and I’m from Washington State; I can barely take St. Louis.

“So Florida’s like… ‘oh god I’m gonna die’ and just living down there, that would have been a little rough for us to commit to that at that point. I was also finishing up my paramedic school so I really wanted to work as a paramedic in addition to wrestling. And then TNA / Impact, they came along and they offered us a good deal. Their schedule was more conducive to both our desires at that time so that’s how the whole thing started.”

Richards and Edwards would wrestle one match for WWE, a tryout in NXT against The Ascension. Dubbed Derrick Billington and John Cahill and called The American Pitbulls, the experience was overall mixed for Richards, who wasn’t exactly dying to work for WWE anyway.

“Yeah the match didn’t go smoothly,” Richards said. “There was a miscue, a missed timing which thankfully I walked away from. Our opponents felt horrible and you know it’s one of those things where it’s no one’s fault. But the crowd was awesome, (it was) a really, really fun, really great atmosphere. You know backstage and out there in the ring. But I just don’t think it was meant to be.

“And I’ve always said, and it was never meant with any disrespect WWE, it just wasn’t a big goal of mine. I didn’t grow up watching it. I didn’t watch Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart unfortunately. Bret has subsequently become one of my favorite wrestlers but I just didn’t see that growing up. So absolutely no disrespect but that was just never a prime target of mine. That’s why it was just better for both parties that we didn’t work together in the future.”

Richards was announced as a signee for MLW as part of their recent 2021 MLW Open Draft. Richards talked about what brought him back to wrestling and to MLW over other promotions.

“You know it’s funny because I never wanted to be the guy that was on the tail end of his career, broken down, who couldn’t go anymore,” Richards said. “And then finally I get the hint that maybe I should leave. To me, match quality is the most important and if I ever got to that level (where I couldn’t perform) I would have been really embarrassed. So I’m glad that I left when I was on top, but I just got to a point where it was just one of those things.

“When I came back, I can’t name names but I had a few different companies reach out and MLW was just amazing. I watched their product and the way we spoke and corresponded was just like ‘man this is awesome, this is great.’ This is what I personally think wrestling should be. That’s not a knocked to other companies, it’s just everyone has their own taste. And I just think I really made the right decision signing with MLW. I can’t tell you how good I’ve been treated and how excited I am for joining them.”

Finally Richards discussed wrestling in front of fans again and the support he had received. He revealed that he didn’t expect fans to actually remember him, and is overwhelmed that they have.

“I was truly convinced that when I stepped away, I stepped away completely” Richards said. “And I was pretty certain that people weren’t gonna remember me at all or just be like ‘oh yeah that guy.’ I gotta hand it to Global Syndicate Wrestling because they’re the ones that really told me I should come back and we’d like to book you. And I’m like ‘to wrestle?’ They’re like ‘yeah. Are you physically able to?’ And I’m like ‘yeah. I’m in the best shape of my life and I’m like yeah why not?’

“It’s bigger to me than just returning to wrestling. I can’t do anything half-assed, especially when it comes to wrestling because it’s such an emotional connection for me. So it was like ‘all right if we’re gonna do this and someone’s gonna pay to see me, they’re gonna get their money’s worth.’ I don’t believe in half-assing things. I just went back and then it was like, I mean I’m, not gonna lie, it blew me away. Just the love and support showing everyday. I’m getting more booking offers and I was very wrong about people thinking that I was gonna be forgotten. Because wow. I got a little emotional to be honest with you, so I very much appreciate every single bit of it and I don’t plan on letting anyone down.”

Chris Jericho reveals which AEW star wanted to jump out of a helicopter at Double or Nothing

AEW's Chris Jericho and his Inner Circle crew recently revealed that Sammy Guevara wanted to jump out of a helicopter during the stable's entrance at Double or Nothing 2021.

At the May 30th pay-per-view, The Inner Circle defeated The Pinnacle in a Stadium Stampede match in the main event. Jericho and his stablemates made their entrance in zip lines from the top of the empty stadium. However, the group had some other, more insane plans that didn't transpire.

On the latest episode of Talk Is Jericho, the stable disclosed several tidbits about how they prepared for the match. Santana revealed the original plan was for them to come down from a helicopter, rappelling.

"The original idea we all had was to have a helicopter fly over the stadium and we all rappel out of the helicopter. We had mentioned that to [Jericho] and you go, 'Ya'll can rappel. That helicopter is going to lower and I will walk right out of it," said Santana.

Chris Jericho stated that the plan was turned down due to insurance issues. The former AEW Champion further revealed that Guevara had wanted to jump out of the helicopter during the entrance.

"We were told we couldn't do the helicopter because of the insurance. 'No one can get thrown out of the helicopter because of the insurance.' 'Who wants to get thrown out of the helicopter?' Sammy," said Chris Jericho.

Sammy Guevara, too, chimed in with his thoughts, boasting that he would have made it work if they were released from around 20-40 feet in the air.

"Imagine, 20-40 feet in the air, getting thrown out. I'll make it work." said Sammy Guevara. (H/T - Fightful)

Chris Jericho said that AEW President Tony Khan was the most apprehensive about the helicopter pitch because of the Kobe Bryant tragedy in January 2020.

The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle are far from over in AEW

This week on AEW Dynamite, The Pinnacle appeared for the first time since their loss at Double or Nothing 2021. However, the MJF-led stable was in for a shock as The Inner Circle appeared on the screen and broke The Pinnacle's limousine.

The Pinnacle's Wardlow will square off against The Inner Circle's Jake Hager in an MMA Steel Cage match on AEW Dynamite next week.

Plus, MJF vs. Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara vs. Shawn Spears has also been set up and could go down in the coming weeks.

Would you have preferred to see The Inner Circle make their entrance in a helicopter at Double or Nothing 2021? Do you the feud between the two stables has run its course in AEW? Sound off in the comments section below.

Adesanya unbothered by Vettori in title defense

If Jan Blachowicz showed the path to blueprint for defeating Israel Adesanya, Marvin Vettori didn’t pick up on it. It was Adesanya, not Vettori, who appeared to learn from that light heavyweight title fight that Blachowicz won.

Adesanya was brilliant Saturday in the main event of UFC 263, retaining his middleweight championship with a shutout of the third-ranked Italian challenger. Vettori tried, as Blachowicz did in February to get the middleweight champion down.

But on the occasions that Vettori was successful, Adesanya managed to get up each time and used his massive edge in striking to dominate the fight.

Adesanya fought less than a month after his friend and training partner, Fau Vake, was murdered in New Zealand. He laid the belt on the canvas at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arena, dropped to his knees and bowed his head in memory of Vake.

“Fau Vake, I love you man,” Adesanya said. “This fight I dedicate to you.”

It was a flawless performance by Adesanya, whose striking was on point throughout. He kicked Vettori’s left leg repeatedly and at one point, kicked it out from under him.

He showed his wizardry with his hands, as well, evading strikes and then connecting to the chin repeatedly. He mixed things up and was throwing low and high kicks, lefts and rights and Vettori never knew where, or where, the strikes were coming from.

Vettori oddly thought he won the fight, even though his coach, Rafael Cordeiro, was pleading with him after every round to pick up the pace and get more aggressive.

He got several takedowns, but unlike in their first fight in 2018, Vettori wasn’t able to hold him down. Adesanya would work his way back to his feet and go on to pick Vettori apart.

He never dropped Vettori with punches or seriously hurt him, but there was little doubt that Adesanya was in command throughout.

After the fight, he called out former champion Robert Whittaker, whom he knocked out in the second round in Australia in 2019.

“We need to run that back in Auckland, in my territory this time,” Adesanya said. “Why? I’m the f***ing king, b****!”

There was little doubt that on this night, Adesanya was king of the cage. Vettori had little to threaten him and Adesanya was, as he has been throughout most of his reign, dominant.
