Israel Adesanya didn’t just put on a performance in The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale on Friday night that left longtime observers wondering if we just might be seeing the rise of MMA’s next great talent.

“The Last Stylebender” also pocketed an extra $50,000 for his efforts.

Adesanya picked apart a very tough Brad Tavares in the middleweight main event of the Las Vegas card, earning a unanimous decision on scores of 49-46 and a pair of 50-45s.

For that, Adesanya earned one of the evening’s Performance of the Night bonuses, his second in three UFC appearances.

The other Performance of the Night award went to lightweight Luis Pena. The TUF 27 contestant from Team Cormier needed just 3:32 to finish Richie Smullen and earn a bonus in his first official UFC bout.

Adesanya looked great but if I’m honest I think Tavares was a bit disappointing but that could also be because of the diversity Adesanya was throwing at him.

A lot of the top 10 will struggle with Adesanya’s length and strike selection.

And his newfound grappling abilities. He made considerable improvements to his TDD and overall grappling game
