Prediction: Brunson is powerful and more athletic than Brad Tavares. He has terrifying ground-and-pound when he gets you down, and we’ve still seen very little of what Adesanya can manage from his back. Buuuuuuut he loses all form when forced into striking exchanges, often gets reckless charging forward for takedowns or throwing wild punches, and I don’t think he has the footwork necessary to ward off Adesanya’s pressure. Brunson is a live dog here but Adesanya is just too crafty and sharp as a striker for Brunson to withstand. Israel Adesanya by TKO, round 2.
