“Pereira is going to beat him again”: Marvin Vettori’s verdict on Israel Adesanya vs. Alex Pereira

Just within five months, Israel Adesanya is fighting Alex Pereira again to reclaim his lost throne. There have been many speculations in the lead-up to the highly anticipated rematch between the two most talented fighters in the division. Marvin Vettori, however, believes that this fight clearly has a favorite.

A super exciting middleweight title fight between Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira is scheduled to be the main event of UFC 287, which will take place on April 8 at the Miami-Dade Arena in Miami, Florida.

What is Marvin Vettori’s prediction regarding the Alex Pereira vs Israel Adesanya fight?

In an interview with Inside Fighting, Marvin shared his predictions regarding the upcoming middleweight title bout. According to the former title contender, The Last Stylebender has no chance of winning against Pereira. 

“Pereira is going to beat him again. So, maybe that [Pereira] is another fight that I’d definitely like. Well, both guys [Pereira and Adesanya]; both guys for sure.” said Marvin.

“The Italian Dream” has already fought Adesanya twice but unfortunately in both of the bouts he lost. So speaking from experience, the Italian fighter sees no chance for Izzy against “Poatan.”

However, the 29-year-old fighter has also predicted future fights in the division which involves him fighting once again against the former middleweight champion. 

“But I’m saying [I could fight Adesanya] because maybe like, you know, like, I see Whittaker getting at Pereira first. So, maybe I get Adesanya after this fight.” Marvin added.

Even though Marvin is unquestionably on Pereira’s side but revenge-seeking Adesanya is expected to give it his all because he is the one who after losing to Pereira asked for a rematch with the Brazilian fighter right away.
