UFC 276: Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier fight preview
“The Last Stylebender” Israel Adesanya is arguably the best-skilled striker in the UFC, and he has an advantage because he was a former professional kickboxer. He is well-known for his quickness, kicking abilities, and deception. Adesanya is defending his middleweight belt for the fifth time. His most recent victory came earlier this year against Robert Whittaker.
In 2016, Jared Cannonier made his UFC debut as a heavyweight. He soon dropped to light heavyweight, where he went 2-3 with losses to title contenders Glover Teixeira, Dominick Reyes, and Blachowicz. He decimates his opponents with lethal combos that attack their major leg. “The Killa Gorilla,” who most recently knocked out Derek Brunson in the second round at UFC 271, is also right now on a two-fight winning streak.
Adesanya has been aggressively lobbying for years to meet Cannonier, implying that this will be a stand-up contest that plays to each other’s strengths. While Cannonier is a superb striker in his own right, he’ll struggle to score his more powerful strikes against Adesanya, who has excellent movement and distance control. Cannonier, while being under six feet tall, is still shorter than Adesanya and will be unable to match Adesanya’s length, agility, and technical brilliancy.
Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier prediction and betting odds
