Israel Adesanya suspects Alex Pereira of breaking the rules

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, who will share the octagon with Alex Pereira in less than a day, does not rule out that his opponent will use prohibited methods to recover from the weight race.

“USADA, keep an eye on us from the weigh-in until the moment we enter the arena,” Adesanya wrote on the social network. “Let people continuously replace each other if necessary, but so that there are no loopholes. Remind me, what is our permitted limit for the use of saline?

Thus, the Nigerian made a reference to the recent story with Islam Makhachev, whom the team of Alexander Volkanovski accused of using droppers with saline before the UFC 284 tournament.

Earlier, there was information that since the press conference held on the eve of the official weigh-in, the Brazilian has lost about ten kilograms, having successfully met the championship limit of his weight category.

Recall that the middleweight title fight between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya will be the main event of the UFC 287 tournament, which will take place on the night of Saturday to Sunday in Miami.
