The start of UFC 276 is just around the corner. For International Fight Week, the fighting world has converged on Las Vegas, where two championship battles will take center stage. Every year for the past ten, UFC has packed these legendary events, and this year was no exception, The T-Mobile Arena is where everything happens on Saturday night.
Israel Adesanya, the reigning middleweight champion, is eager to take on Jared Cannonier, a devastating knockout artist, as his newest opponent.
The veteran from Alaska, who competed in the heavyweight and light heavyweight classes before settling down at 185 pounds, gets his first shot at gold at age 37.
Adesanya, on the other hand, continues to dominate at middleweight, having suffered his lone loss when attempting to win a second belt at 205 pounds.
When Alex Pereira and Sean Strickland square off in a main event, the undercard may give rise to the future middleweight champion.
When the two competed for Glory Kickboxing, Pereira owns the distinction of defeating Adesanya twice, one by knockout.
Although he has only twice entered the Octagon, he has successfully defended himself against challenging opposition.
Strickland, on the other hand, has become a force after increasing his weight to 185 pounds.
If Strickland can defeat the hard-throwing knockout artist on Saturday, he would have won five straight matches at middleweight and appears to be a serious contender for the belt.
