Champ Israel Adesanya 'not overestimating' Jared Cannonier at UFC 276
Israel Adesanya will defend his middleweight title against Jared Cannonier in the UFC 276 pay-per-view main event on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Israel Adesanya has had his way with the UFC middleweight division for four years running. Eleven fights, 11 wins, the last 10 coming either in championship fights or against currently-ranked 185ers. Well, there’s one that doesn’t fit into either box: middleweight GOAT Anderson Silva. That looks nice on the résumé, too.
So when the current champion at 185 pounds says Jared Cannonier, his upcoming opponent in the UFC 276 pay-per-view main event on Saturday (10 p.m. ET) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, isn’t the greatest challenge of his career — it comes across less as trash talk and more as analysis.
