“It will be interesting. I think it will all be stand-up, kickboxing, boxing. Costa can take jabs all night. He's definitely going to get tired and Strickland is going to take advantage of that. For Costa to win, what does he need to do? He would have to be aggressive, use kicks to the body and also use the jab. Even if he doesn't land them all, it's important to exchange jabs with Strickland. Furthermore, grappling will tire him out too. Strickland has to do what he does, press and use jabs. I think front kicks will be a problem for Costa”, analyzed the Nigerian.

After pointing out the paths to victory for both fighters, Israel adesanya agreed with the favoritism of Sean Strickland, which, according to him, should hit Paulo borrachinha in a long fight.


“I'm going with Strickland in this fight. I'll say that's enough for the judges' decision. He’s not going to knock him out,” he concluded.
