Who will win Adesanya vs Costa?
This is an intriguing and spiteful match-up and could present the biggest threat yet to Adesanya’s unbeaten streak. The Nigerian-born, New Zealand-based fighter has a significant height and reach advantage over Costa and will aim to use his striking and unconventional angles to counter the Brazilian.
Costa is likely to spend most of the fight moving forward looking for another knockout to add to his collection. If Adesanya can use his speed to mostly keep out of harm’s way, we’re leaning towards another decision victory for the reigning champion.
