It’s official: Middleweight champion Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya will fight each other for a fourth time April 8 at UFC 287.
Two times in kickboxing, Pereira has gotten the best Adesanya, including one knockout. And this past November at UFC 281, Pereira asserted his supremacy in MMA, too, by rallying for a fifth-round TKO win over Adesanya to claim the 185-pound title from his rival.
Despite a 3-0 record against him, Pereira has opened up as a +135 betting underdog, with Adesanya coming back as a -155 favorite. What’s our early lean on the fight? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Danny Segura, Farah Hannoun and Brian “Goze” Garcia answer that question with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
