UFC 287 is around the corner. There are just a few days left for the clash between Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira, for the middleweight belt. The two longtime rivals are locking horns for the second time in the promotion. However, the animosity between the two dates back to their kickboxing days. The upcoming fight would be the fourth time the two were coming face to face. The bout is going to be one of the biggest fights of Adesanya’s career. If he wins the bout, ‘The Last Stylebender’ will be able to earn his middleweight belt back from ‘Poatan’. Nonetheless, if Adesanya lost the match, it would mark a major setback in his career.
