Will Adesanya regain his title and prove he is still king? Or will that bull Pereira; who should probably try Light Heavyweight, prove he is the better fighter?
Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira are set to face off in the main event of UFC 287. This highly anticipated rematch comes after their first bout in 2017, which saw Adesanya emerge victorious with a second-round knockout. Since then, both fighters have gone on to achieve great success in the UFC, with Adesanya becoming the middleweight champion and Pereira winning the interim middleweight belt. Fans can expect an intense and exciting fight between these two skilled strikers.
MY Personal Prediction:
Jorge loses by TKO to Burns 3rd round.
Or will Izzy stop his left hook ; I think his southpaw but stands orthodox for speed but still, and finally get his revenge by knocking Pereira out cold on the canvas and find his way back to only competing at kick boxing. Izzy should use some Jon Jones strategy and destroy them legs from the bell but set them up with bs jabs and takedowns keeping him guessing.
Obviously I want @stylebender to win back his belt; but he’s going in worrying about that power and that stoppage. I am going to say 3rd to early 4th round Pereira gets caught. For Izzy I am hoping he puts him out and stops the man that got pushed to fight for the belt without facing any threat before Izzy. Obviously Pereira cuts weight, so it sucks Jon Jones is heavy weight now; but it would be Gane all over again.
Adesanya, known for his precision striking and technical prowess, will be looking to defend his title and solidify his status as one of the best fighters in the world. Pereira, on the other hand, will be seeking revenge and looking to prove that he is the better fighter. With both fighters having improved since their last meeting, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will come out on top.
Overall, this rematch between Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira is sure to be a must-watch for any UFC fan. With both fighters at the top of their game, it’s bound to be an exciting and memorable fight.
