Israel Adesanya vs Paulo Costa Preview
Israel Adesanya opens as the comfortable $1.55 favourite here, with Paulo Costa out at $2.45.
Adesanya enters this bout with a very impressive 19-0 record, 8 of which have come in the UFC.
He has beaten a strong list of competitors, with his last 5 wins coming against Brunson, Silva, Gastelum, Whittaker, and Romero.
Known primarily for his excellent power and striking ability, 14 of his wins have come by way of knockout.
Paulo Costa has also had an impressive start to his MMA career, entering this bout undefeated at 13-0.
He doesn’t have the same level of UFC experience as Adesanya, but has managed wins over Hendricks, Hall, and Romero.
Another excellent striker, 11 of his 13 wins have been by knockout.
These two fighters match up very well and I’m expecting a close bout here.
For that reason, I’ll steer clear of the handicap and go ‘Yes- Fight will start Round 3’ at $1.70.
There is incredibly high stakes involved and I’d expect both fighters to be somewhat conservative to start – no one wants a Jose Aldo moment.
Neither fighter is likely to take this to the ground, meaning we’d need to see an early knockout punch for this bet not to cash, which I think is unlikely.
