Main Event: Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa
Prediction: Costa has power, so he has a chance, and I think his best shot is trying to pressure Israel and land a bomb as he circles away from the fence. Apart from that, I think Adesanya is just far better everywhere and should dominate in open space as he controls distance and picks him apart in the latter rounds. The kickboxer has beaten much better and more technical strikers, with same or even more power, so Costa won’t really bring anything he hasn’t seen before. His aggressive game should play into Adesanya’s game very well, so unless Costa catches him big early, I think the champ will slowly pick him apart and finish him as he starts to slow in the latter rounds. Israel Adesanya by late TKO. Scroll above to watch UFC 253 stream live.
