UFC 281: Adesanya vs. Pereira takes place at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City, on Saturday, November 12, 2022.
The UFC 281 is stacked including two Championship fights Israel Adesanya vs. Alex Pereira, Carla Esparza vs. Zhang Weiliand an undercard featuring Dustin Poirier vs. Michael Chandler in a bad blood bought at lightweight.
UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is ready for revenge as he takes on an old rival from his kickboxing days Alex Pereira who knocked him out.
Adesanya doesn’t believe Pereira’s kickboxing will carry over into MMA well against him and he has evolved since those days and will surprise the Brazilian contender when they square off in the main event.
Carla Esparza is the reigning women’s strawweight champion and she will be in against the former champion Zhang Weili in a styles match between wrestler and striker, this has the makings of a real competitive match.
Dustin Poirier doesn’t like Michael Chandler and the two will finally get a chance to settle their differences in the Octagon on Saturday night. Poirier can crack and so can Chandler this could end up in a knockout.
