UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, has shared a new promo video for his upcoming UFC 281 title fight against Alex Pereira.

The collision course for a fight between Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira was set as soon as ‘Poatan’ entered the UFC.

The pair have faced off twice before in kickboxing, with Pereira winning both bouts. The first of which some, including Adesanya, contest the result, claiming that Adesanya was the deserved winner.
