Israel Adesanya Is Looking Forward To ‘Any’ Fights, Including A Potential Bout Vs. Alex Pereira

Israel Adesanya is waiting for his next “fresh blood” opponent.

Adesanya is going to defend his belt for the seventh time. This time the title challenger will be tough contender, Jared Cannonier.

If Adesanya defeats Cannonier, Sean Strickland will be the only fighter in the top five who had no opportunity against Adesanya because he defeated Marvin Vettori and Robert Whittaker twice and knocked out Derek Brunson.

Strickland is fighting with one of the best kickboxers, Alex Pereira. Pereira is the only man who served Adesanya a knockout loss, but it was a long time ago, under kickboxing rules.

Adesanya is the middleweight champion under MMA rules, and no striker has made him taste defeat during his run in the UFC.

“I look forward to any of these fights,” Adesanya explained.

“I don’t like this ‘this is too fast, this is too fast for Pereira’ story, but listen, Jiri [Prochazka] just fought and won the belt in his third UFC fight. Anderson [Silva] did it in the second fight,” Adesanya said.

Pereira has only six professional fights; he defeated two unranked fighters and, now, he’s getting fights against the top five contenders of the division when he is not ranked yet.

“It’s not kickboxing, it’s mixed martial arts,” Adesanya said. “These aren’t big pillow gloves, they’re a lethal four-ounce weapon that I can’t wait to stab through his face after I’ve gone through Jared Cannonier.”
