Israel Adesanya releases unofficial UFC 281 promo video


UFC Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya does the promotion for them by creating a promo video for UFC 281.

Adesanya on Sunday released the unofficial fight trailer for the Nov. 12 pay-per-view event, which features his MMA rematch with Alex Pereira, the heavy-fisted Brazilian who twice defeated him in the kickboxing ring.

UFC 281 takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York City and airs on ESPN+ pay-per-view. This headliner will mark Adesanya’s sixth attempt to defend the title of middleweight while Pereira is aiming for his fourth UFC victory on the largest stage.

The majority of betting lines favor Adesanya over Pereira. Although the lines haven’t changed much since the announcement of the fight, they are likely to shift as the fight nears.

Pereira outpointed Adesanya in their first kickboxing meeting in April 2016. A rematch in March 2017 was even more emphatic for the Brazilian, who knocked out the current UFC champ in the third round after early trouble.

Adesanya is emphatic his MMA skillset will be enough to overcome his previous results against Pereira.

” “He who laughs least, laughs most,” the UFC Middleweight Champion said.
