Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier Preview

The undisputed king of the Middleweights is back to prove why he is one of the greatest to ever do it against one hungry challenger in Jared Cannonier.

Israel Adesanya has solidified himself as one of the pound-for-pound best of all time, he is very close to setting history by crossing the great Anderson Silva's middleweight win streak.

Adesanya has been on a different level cleaning out the best in his division and being dominant in his efforts.

His most notable wins have been against top middleweights like Robert Whittaker, Paulo Costa, Anderson Silva, and Marvin Vettori.

This week he comes against another tough challenge and a fifth title defence can end the debate for the greatest middleweight of all time.

Jared Cannonier brings a different challenge to the table compared to some of the champion’s recent opponents.

Cannonier has transitioned his career from Heavyweight to Light Heavyweight and now eventually Middleweight where he has found most success.

He has retained power from his Heavyweight days which helped him finish some top contenders like Anderson Silva, Jack Hermansson, and Derek Brunson.

He is a technical brawler with the ability to find his shots and put his opponent's lights out.

Cannonier will have his hands full this week though when he meets arguably the greatest striker in UFC history.

UFC 276 Best Bets

Our first best bet this weekend comes on an entertaining middleweight bout between Brad Tavares and Dricus Du Plessis.

The Middleweight division has been a bit stagnant but some interesting contenders are coming up and Du Plessis is one of them.

We think this is great matchmaking as Du Plessis is very well-rounded and on a good run, we believe he will get a number next to his name after he takes out a veteran.

Our next bet is on a bantamweight main-card bout between Sean O'Malley and Pedro Munhoz.

This is a big step-up in competition for O'Malley, but we think he will rise to the occasion and take out a tough veteran by decision.

Our next best bet is on the much-anticipated trilogy between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway.

The last fight between these two was extremely close, and since then they both have taken out two tough contenders.

We think this fight will be like their second bout and both will put up a close fight.

Our final bet this weekend comes on our main event of the evening.

Although Jared is a great fighter, we think he has nothing for the champion, and this will be a one-sided affair.

Israel is a smart fighter who never forces a finish, but we think if this one plays out on the feet for five rounds, the champ can find a highlight this weekend.
