Israel Adesanya's defeat

Headlining UFC 287 Roundtable: Consequences of Israel Adesanya’s defeat to Alex Pereira on his legacy and other topics.

The highly anticipated rematch between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya, or the tetralogy bout as some like to call it, has many wondering about the future of both fighters. The stakes are high for Adesanya, as another loss to Pereira would raise questions about his legacy and how he will be remembered in the sport, despite being considered the second-greatest middleweight of all time. Meanwhile, if Pereira wins, he would have a claim to being 4-of-4 against Adesanya during his prime, which would make it impossible for Adesanya to shake off his adversary’s haunting presence.

As for whether Gilbert Burns or Jorge Masvidal could take Colby Covington’s title shot, Masvidal has the edge in terms of star power and selling tickets, as well as a built-in storyline with Leon Edwards. On the other hand, a win for Burns over Masvidal would be a more significant achievement than Masvidal’s previous wins, making Burns a serious contender for Covington’s title shot.

The undercard fight that’s most intriguing includes Raul Rosas Jr., the young prodigy who’s yet to show his true potential, going up against . Fans will be interested to see if Rodriguez can take Rosas to the scorecards or if a fast finish will further skeptics’ doubts about Rosas’ quality of opposition.

Another undercard fight that’s intriguing is Rob Font versus Adrian Yanez in the bantamweight division, as Yanez is looking to graduate from a top-15 bantamweight to a serious threat to the champion at 135 pounds. Ultimately, these two fighters like to throw down, and their match could steal the show and be a serious contender for Fight of the Night honors.

Finally, Joe Pyfer, a 26-year-old knockout artist, has an inspiring story of perseverance that makes him a rising prospect worth keeping an eye on, and his match against Gerald Meerschaert is a perfect prove-it fight for Pyfer.
