Thanks to the two title fights at the top of the card, UFC 236 was an event to remember.
Dustin Poirier claimed the interim lightweight crown with a hard-fought five-round verdict over reigning featherweight king Max Holloway in the main event, while Israel Adesanya used a strong fifth frame to capture interim 185-pound gold against Kelvin Gastelum in the co-headliner.

Meanwhile, Israel Adesanya and Kelvin Gastelum shared mutual respect in the Octagon before “The Last Stylebender” enjoyed a conversation with UFC President Dana White and reigning middleweight champion Kamaru Usman backstage.
