Israel Adesanya Aims To Win His 20th UFC Match Later This Month

Nigerian mixed martial arts fighter Israel Adesanya

Nigerian mixed martial arts fighter Israel Adesanya (The Last Stylebender) will defend his UFC middleweight belt against Paul Costa, the Brazilian Eraser. The fight which is slated for the 27th of September is bound to be a tough one as both fighters have been undefeated so far in their professional mixed martial arts careers. Israel holds a record of 19 fights, 19 wins, 14 knockouts, and 0 losses while Paul Costa’s record stands at 13 fights, 13 wins, 11 knockouts, and 0 losses.

Costa is a dangerous middleweight with brutal power in his hands. He may not have the cleanest striking but he can separate people from their consciousness with ease. Additionally, his intense pressure poses a serious threat to fighters in the early rounds. Adesanya, on the other hand, is one of the best strikers in the UFC. He might not look threatening but he can surely knock out anybody in the division. Many critics believe that Costa will be an easy fight for Adesanya because of “The last Stylebender’s” slick counters.

Over the past weeks, Nigerians have expressed support for Israel Adesanya on social media with the #IsraelAdesanya20 campaign. Being his 20th fight, it’s definitely a landmark event and all eyes are on Israel to deliver victory on that fateful day. The fight will be aired on DSTV Channel 230 by 3 am on the 27th of September.
