Robert Whittaker

After defeating Marvin Vettori at UFC 263, Adesanya wasted no time and called out his rival Robert Whittaker for a rematch. For now, Whittaker is the no. 1 pick as the next title challenger.

Jon Jones

As Jon Jones hasn't yet booked a fight in the heavyweight division, he won't miss an opportunity to step in against his rival Adesanya if he moves up to the light heavyweight division again.

Jared Cannonier

Currently ranked #4, Jared Cannonier won't be a walk in the park for Adesanya if this fight ever comes to fruition.

Derek Brunson

Derek Brunson holds the fifth position in the middleweight division ranking. Brunson would probably want to avenge his last professional loss against Adesanya.

Jan Blachowicz

Adesanya will probably take a second shot at the light heavyweight title to become a two-division champ to avenge his first and only professional loss against Jan Blachowicz.
