Israel Adesanya's Next Opponent Revealed After UFC 271

Who is Israel Adesanya fighting next?

One of the biggest stars in combat sports, Israel Adesanya defended the UFC middleweight title against Robert Whittaker at UFC 271. The fight was extremely competitive and many fans believe that Whittaker did enough to win the title. But, in the end, Israel Adesanya won the fight by unanimous decision.

With this win, Israel Adesanya has beaten most of the top UFC middleweights including Robert Whittaker, Paulo Costa, Marvin Vettori, and Derek Brunson. Now there are some up-and-coming contenders in the division, but who is next for the Stylebender.

Well, it seems Jared Cannonier, who secured a TKO win over Derek Brunson at UFC 271. is going to fight Adesanya next. Cannonier called out Dana White after his win over Brunson and demanded a title shot next.

In response to Cannonier, Dana White stated that he is not going to say no to him for a fight with Adesanya. White stated: "I was excited to see that fight to see how it was going to play out. It was an awesome fight. Yeah, I'm not going to say no to Cannonier."

Even Israel Adesanya expressed his interest in fighting Jared Cannonier following his win over Robert Whittaker and stated: "He made a statement and I told him after the official weigh-ins 'please take this guy out so I can get some fresh meat."

Israel Adesanya vs Jared Cannonier is an exciting matchup. Cannonier's power will be a threat to Israel Adesanya. But this fight is going to be a striking battle and it's difficult to outstrike Adesanya in the UFC octagon.

However, if Jared Cannonier defends the leg kicks from Israel Adesanya early on and forces him to box with him in the range then he can have a lot of success against Adesanya.
