Israel Adesanya defeated Paulo Costa at UFC 253 to retain the middleweight championship belt and he did it in part thanks to nearly perfect lower leg kicks. But also, what’s the deal with his chest looking so strange during the fight? In this video we’ll review why Adesanya’s leg kicks were so effective in beating Costa, plus, what could possibly be going on with the MMA star’s chest?
UPDATE: I was off on the point about unilateral vs bilateral as many have pointed out in the comments. I appreciate the feedback and everyone pointing this out and will always admit if I missed something. In this case i was quick to defend an athlete I saw being accused unfairly of steroid use and didnt do enough research on a topic outside of my expertise. lesson learned, will keep working to be better.
