Israel Adesanya has disputed Conor McGregor’ s claim that he has the most knockdowns in a UFC world title fight.
Earlier this week it was the four year anniversary of McGregor ’ s TKO success against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 .
Posting on Instagram , McGregor wrote , “ Most Knockdowns in a UFC World Title Fight! Clinical shooting . I have surpassed this level , multiple times over . Excited to showcase !”
However , although McGregor claims that he registered five knockdowns against Alvarez , UFC records state that he only had three .
Adesanya commented on McGregor ’ s post, writing, “ Second most knockdowns , ” accompanied by a wink emoji .
As reported by Bloody Elbow , UFC records state that Adesanya managed four knockdowns when he took on Kelvin Gastelum in a Middleweight clash at UFC 236 in 2019
