Alex Pereira Reacts To Israel Adesanya Mocking His Son After Knockout

Alex Pereira has reacted to how Israel Adesanya mocked his son after landing a knockout victory in their world title rematch on Saturday, saying he understood why his rival behaved that way.

According to the Mirror, for seven years over three fights in two different sports, Adesanya had been chasing an elusive victory over Pereira but was upset on each occasion.

However, he managed to land a massive knockout win at the fourth time of asking at UFC 287, after which he led one of the wildest celebrations the octagon has ever seen.

Before an heartfelt post-fight interview with Joe Rogan, the now two-time champion could be seen pointing to someone in the crowd, before mockingly jumping to the floor and playing dead.
