My prediction:
Adesanya and Costa are vicious fighters and they have thrown dozens of verbal jabs at each other over the past year.

Imo This fight can go either way, if Costa wins he will win in the first round or the second considering his relentless pressure and his powerful strikes.

Adesanya can win this fight if he fights cautiously, Costa can easily rock him with those powerful punches and Adesanya needs to avoid being caught and instead pin point his strikes on timely manner. Costa's kryptonite could be his relentless pressure going forward trying to secure early KO, Adesanya has precision and excellent timing which could prove to be game-changer.


I will go with Costa for the win. It's hard for any UFC fighter to not screech under that overwhelming power.


What are your predictions?!

Spot on, but I think Adesanya just moves too well. I can definitely see Costa come out on top with sheer unrelenting pressure and powering through. That said, I think Israel just moves too well and in combination w/ his counter striking style, precision and fight IQ he'll wear him down over time. I feel like this will be the fight Adesanya vs Romero should have been. This fight is big for izzy's resume.

Because he is cocky and he is wearing hoyos earings
Countless mixed martial artists are cocky though, like Floyd Mayweather, Connor McGregor, Jon Jones, Anderson Silva etc. And they're best at what they do. Hyping up yourself can give you extra push and the mental fortitude that you need to survive in this cruel sport.

I would love Costa to knock that obnoxious, smog, arrogant prick. Adesanya, is just too much. He annoys the f*ck outta me. He also needs to grow up. The man is 31 years old, and acts like a teenage boy; calling himself 'Stylebender' on twitter and other childish acts.

This is the man, that was running away from a man in his 40s, in his last fight....he'll definitely be running away from Costa.

Actually, the last fight with Romero was a bit weird. Romero essentially stood in the center of the Octagon refusing to engage with Adesanya for the first two minutes. It was a dreadful tactical strategy from Romero, he wasted his title opportunity like that.

Romero was the aggressor. Romero is a Silver medal Olympian wrestler (!), but he never uses his elite wrestling credentials.

It's hard to like Adesanya. I don't mind him being arrogant, but he's very unsportsmanlike. Insulting people he just fought in the octagan. He called Khamzat a rat-lip, he copied that from another washed out prick Conor, he used that against Khamzat. Adesanye has no personalty, not funny, just annoying. A wannabe Conor

Technically, i think Adesanya will win and use his kicking ability to keep Costa at distance. 185 was dying until Khamzat arrived.

What? Romero literally stood still in the centre of the octagon refusing to engage when he is a 40-something year old man on his last leg in the sport. He was behind on points, connected a nasty one early. He had everything to gain and nothing to lose. He disappoints and will forever be known as a gatekeeper.
