Featherweight’s Wasi “The Nigerian Jaguar” Adeshina and Georgia’s Luka Giorgadze just clashed in the FCR 19 co-main event.

The two physically strong fighters threw bombs from the start. After one minute, Adeshina took the fight to the floor with a perfectly timed takedown and worked from the top. Giorgadze got to his feet and showed proof of his crisp boxing before he started to work on a takedown.

Both fighters started the second round at a high pace but Adeshina seemed to land the cleaner shots. Giorgadze worked hard to get a takedown and pressed “The Nigerian Jaguar” against the fence. By the end of the round Adeshina landed a clean one-two combination that staggered his opponent.

Both fighters looked fresh at the start of the third and final round as they traded on the feet. Adeshina secured a takedown after a minute and a half and started to work from the top. He was able to control the majority of the round to win the fight via unanimous decision with 30-27, 30-27 and 30-27 on the scorecards.

“It’s more to come, I’m getting better day by day,” Adeshina said after the fight.
