Adesanya calls out Pereira after retaining the UFC title at UFC 276

After successfully defending his middleweight title against Jared Cannonier in the main event of UFC 276 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Israel Adesanya has challenged Alex Pereira to the next defense.

Because ‘The Last Stylebender’ kept Cannonier at bay while dismantling him with jabs and kicks to the body and legs, Adesanya’s superior striking ability was obvious in the octagon.

Adesanya outhit his American opponent 163 to 141 overall, including 116 to 90 strikes that were of note.
The Lagos-born fighter won the battle with scores of 49-46, 49-46, and 50-45 after 5 rounds, making it his sixth consecutive successful championship defense.
The 32-year-old has previously defeated Paulo Costa, Yoel Romero, Robert Whittaker (twice), and Marvin Vettori

Adesanya criticized former kickboxing foe Alex Pereira after the Brazilian defeated Sean Strickland on the UFC 276 undercard.

“I will leave it at that,” the middleweight champion declared. “The first time was a miscalculation on my part spamming the right hand but it was in kickboxing…. next time I punch you, you will be on skates and you’re going to be frozen like Elsa.
While acknowledging the Brazilian for his knockout victory over Strickland, Adesanya emphasized that he is the superior all-around fighter and will demonstrate against the Brazilian what mixed martial arts is all about.

In their kickboxing matches, Pereira defeated Adesanya twice, once by knockout.

The Last Stylebender is still unblemished in the meanwhile after his most recent victory.
