    The MMA world is now running out superlatives in describing the instant classic given by Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya. 

    The middleweight pair made jaws dropped on Saturday night as they went to an epic all-out war in the co-main event of UFC 236 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta Georgia.

    MMA fans were in unison that both fighters deserved the interim middleweight championship as they gave all their hearts out to deliver a Fight of the Year contender.
