Watch Israel Adesanya’s epic trailer for Alex Pereira fight at UFC 281: ‘He who laughs last, laughs best’

·1 min read

Israel Adesanya knows how to build up his fights.

In perhaps his biggest fight to date, Middleweight champion Adesanya (23-1 MMA, 12-1 UFC) meets former kickboxing foe Alex Pereira (6-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) in the main event of UFC 281 on Nov. 12 at Madison Square Garden.

Adesanya will look to avenge his two losses to Pereira in kickboxing, where he was knocked out in the rematch. “Poatan” has had a fast rise in MMA and earned a title shot by knocking out Sean Strickland with his patented left hook at UFC 276 – on the same night Adesanya retained his title against Jared Cannonier.

Many view Pereira as the boogeyman for Adesanya, but “The Last Stylebender” welcomes all the doubters and critics. Ahead of his sixth title defense, Adesanya released a trailer that will surely get you hyped up for the fight.

You can watch the full trailer in the video below:
