If Alex Pereira pays attention to wrestling in the current training camp, he will again defeat Israel Adesanya and retain the UFC middleweight title, popular Chechen fighter Khamzat Chimaev is sure.
“I don’t think Adesanya will win,” Borz told Ariel Helwani. “If Alex starts wrestling in training camp, he will beat Izzy. Now Pereira has zero struggle.
At the same time, Chimaev himself is convinced that he can easily deal with the reigning UFC middleweight champion.
“I am ready to fight him in Brazil, in any weight class he wants. For me, this is the easiest fight in the UFC and in general in my career. In the first round, in the first minute – with ease and without a single blow.
A middleweight title rematch between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya will headline UFC 287 in Miami on April 8.
