Israel Adesanya -185
Israel Adesanya boasts a spectacular 19-0 record winning 74% of his fights by knockout. In his last fight, he beat Yoel Romero by decision at UFC 248.
It was a boring fight as both fighters didn't want to fight. Adesanya was doing just enough to get the job done and not fall into a trap.
He is a true monster from kickboxing and boxing and is as cunning and creative as can be. Adesanya has an 80-inch reach, fits well into his leg, and has an unorthodox stance that throws his opponent down.
It's hard to know what punch Adesanya will strike at you, yet in addition to his punching power with unpredictability, you will find a dangerous fighter who has shown little weakness thus far.
Paulo Costa +150
Paulo Costa has a terrifying 13-0 record, getting 85% of his fights by knockout. In his last bout he got a win against Yoel Romero at UFC 241.
Costa has won 11 of his 13 fights by knockout and is a massive middleweight fighter who throws every punch and with a lot of variety with the intention of hurting his opponent.
It's clear that Costa has beastly knockout power in both hands, but he also has a lot of different kicks that he likes to unleash and will make the most of any defensive weaknesses.
He, who also has a black belt in BJJ, is always attacking to overwhelm his opponent and seeks to support him against the cage where he can exert use of his power and end the fight.
Costa also has an above-average defense and will have to prove his tank if the fight drags on.
In addition to being unbeatable, Adesanya is a great fighter and has already shown it when he has fought against Yoel Romero, Robert Whittaker and Kelvin Gastelum and any doubts that may arise are clarified-
