Jon Jones Predicts Adesanya V Strickland

Jon Jones Predicts Adesanya V Strickland

In a recent development, Israel Adesanya, aged 34, secured a remarkable victory by KO against Alex Pereira (8-2 MMA) during UFC 287 last April, regaining his middleweight championship. Meanwhile, Sean Strickland, aged 32, showcased his dominance in the Octagon with consecutive wins over Nassourdine Imavov (12-4 MMA) and Abusupiyan Magomedov (25-5 MMA).

Initially, the plan was for Adesanya to defend his title against Dricus Du Plessis (20-2 MMA). However, this matchup was derailed due to Du Plessis' injury sustained in a fight with Robert Whittaker at UFC 290 on July 8th of this year.

UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones, speaking on the 'OverDogs' podcast, shared his prediction for UFC 293, favoring Adesanya: "I got Izzy winning just because he’s more versatile. He does everything that Sean does, just way more calculated."

Jones is currently gearing up for his own title defense against Stipe Miocic at UFC 295.

What's your take on Jones' prediction? Will Adesanya triumph over Strickland to retain the middleweight title at UFC 293?
