Israel Adesanya Completely Lost His Mind While Watching Kai Kara-France's KO

Israel Adesanya went absolutely berserk while watching Kai Kara-France secure perhaps the biggest win of his MMA career.

Kiwi flyweight Kara-France put himself right within title contention after his impressive knockout victory over former 135-pound champion Cody Garbrandt.

When a sledgehammer right hand to the temple sent Garbrandt crashing to the canvas, the entire T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas rose to its feet and cheered as Kara-France wheeled away in celebration.


Watching it on television at home was good, but seeing it live in the flesh would have been incredible.

One man who was soaking in every second of it all from the comfort of his sofa was middleweight champion Adesanya.

Adesanya was on hand to watch his fellow countryman in action at UFC 269 and, rather unsurprisingly, he went completely nuts after seeing him knock out one of the best in the business.


In a video posted on his YouTube channel, Izzy can be seen on his feet the entire duration of the bout.

And when his City Kickboxing teammate Kara-France first drops Garbrandt, Izzy leaps up off the sofa and screams at the television.

"Let's go! I'm about to explode," he yells.

The whole room then erupts when Kara-France finishes the fight and gets his hand raised by the referee.


What a moment.
