Israel Adesana make his fifth middleweight title defense in UFC 276 in view of Jared Cannonier. The co-main event does not fall short, and facing Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway.

Number 3 in the UFC ranking, a fighter who adapted to middleweight after going through higher categories will be measured. Firm performances of the night against David Branch, Anderson Silva and Jack Hermansson. Then a loss to Robert Whittaker delayed a possible duel with ‘The Last Stylebender’. Although today ‘The Killa Gorilla’ is not the favoritehe recovered with wins against Kelvin Gastelum and Derek Brunson.

adesanya has it everything in favor to win, and even to knock out if he takes advantage of his rival’s impulsive attacks. In any case, it is more than likely that the Nigerian champion will duel the attack to exploit his best weapons.

On the sidelines of the fight, Adesanya has wanted to settle some malicious comments that suggest that his physique and his great resistance come from the help of prohibited products. “I promise. I’ll pay $3 million to anyone who has evidence that I ever bought, touched, or used any kind of performance-enhancing drug or whatever.”. I saw ‘expensive’. That’s what I know about steroids, thanks to that documentary. I opened my eyes. I was surprised,” the fighter noted. The champion added, “It’s easy to talk and write something, but it really bothered me a bit after the Paulo Costa fight.”
