Adesanya, fresh off his victory against Alex Pereira following a second-round KO, took some time to spar with Paul.
The latter’s previous bouts against UFC fighters like Paulo Costa have not gone down well. During a sparring session, Paul was knocked out by a right hand, despite starting well.
This time around, Paul and Adesanya’s sparring was more competitive even if the latter got the better of the exchanges.
The highlight of the video saw Adesanya executing a well-timed trip takedown, which raised a lot of talking points on social media.

To be fair, Paul is an accomplished amateur wrestler so why not?
