Despite the fact that for two years the holder of the UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, has easily stopped one challenger after another, it is still too early to say that we are dealing with a dominant champion. The themes of his low resilience and weak grappling skills have still not been fully explored, while there are still guys on the promotion roster who can do it, such as Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori. And although both athletes have already lost to the New Zealander before, each of them can get another chance to give answers to questions of interest to many fans of mixed martial arts.
But first of all, they will have to find out who is more worthy of this opportunity. In the main event of UFC Fight Night 196, which will take place on October 24, their face-to-face meeting will take place, which promises to result in a competitive and uncompromising fight, because the feeling of revenge is a great motivator.
