UFC 276: Adesanya vs. Cannonier – How to watch it live, betting preview
Last week’s UFC did not disappoint, Gamrot and Tsarukyan prepared a real war for us, and the Pole did better. On the other hand, Shavkat Rakhmonov justified the hype, and continued the series undefeated. The event that follows is one of the best this year, at least by the names on the card. The main fight of the evening is the fight for the champion in the middle category, where Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier will compete.
Israel Adesanya vs. Jared Cannonier
Izzy after a long time gets an opponent, who will not have a basic game plan to knock Adesanyu to the ground. Cannonier is a classic kickboxer just like Izzy. These two guys fought together at the same event a few months ago, and they both defeated their opponents. Adesanya, defeated Whittaker for the second time, while Cannonier knocked out Brunson.
This is the fifth title defense for Adesanya, and he is undefeated in the middleweight division. He suffered the only defeat by “climbing” into the category higher than Jan Blachowicz. Lately, Izzy has been tactful a lot, and his fights are going to a decision, which is why he is the target of criticism from MMA fans, who are used to his attractive knockouts and fighting style, which he practiced until he became a champion.

Cannonier is in his late martial years, but with age, he is getting better and more focused. At the beginning of his UFC career, he fought in the heavyweight category, he was a chubby guy who has a problem losing weight, but now he looks physically imposing, explosive and fast. A real war awaits us, as it used to be in the K1 ring, with a lot of punching and stand-up action.
