Israel Adesanya already has his sights set on his next defense for the UFC Middleweight championship.
Following their successful defense against Jared Cannonier by unanimous decision at UFC 276 tonight in Las Vegas. Adesanya laid out the challenge to Alex Pereira for a future championship bout between the two.
Pereira defeated Sean Strickland in the first round with a stunning knockout to seal the deal and become a ranked fighter to now challenge Adesanya for the championship. Once both fighters are ready, we should definitely be seeing them in the octagon before the end of the year.
