The first two of those wins came in the Chinese kickboxing promotion Glory of Heroes, and Adesanya has argued the judges handed the win to Pereira. In their first rematch, Pereira knocked Adesanya out.
Then, at UFC 281, Pereira knocked Adesanya’s middleweight championship off him in a fifth-round TKO victory. That was Adesanya’s first loss in the middleweight class. UFC 287 marks his first defense of the title.
Interestingly enough, Adesanya is actually the favorite at the moment to win, but the numbers have slightly tightened. Right DraftKings(opens in new tab) has him listed at -130 (bet $130 to win $100), and Pereira (+110) isn’t too much of an underdog (bet $100 to win $110).
In the co-main event, odds tighten on Jorge Masvidal (+340, down from yesterday’s +360) and Gilbert Burns (-425, slightly down from -450). The two will fight for momentum toward a Welterweight Championship match. Neither man has beaten Kamaru Usman, who had dropped the title to current champ Leon Edwards.

You’re going to need ESPN Plus(opens in new tab) to watch UFC 287 live streams — and all the upcoming numbered UFC PPVs — so let’s talk about the best deal to make this happen.
At UFC 287, Israel Adesanya will look to finally gain a win over Alex Pereira, after losing the pair’s three previous clashes across MMA and kickboxing.
Pereira took the UFC middleweight title from Adesanya with a TKO victory in November, and the Brazilian also holds a points win and knockout over the “Last Stylebender” from the pair’s kickboxing days.
Nigerian-New Zealander Adesanya was on course for victory in their first mixed martial arts meeting, five months ago, after nearly stopping Pereira at the end of the first round. However, “Poatan” secured the finish in the final round, to cap off his quick ascent up the middleweight rankings.
Before that main-event bout, fan-favorite Jorge Masvidal will fight in front of a home crowd in Miami, taking on Gilbert Burns – a fellow former welterweight title challenger.

UFC 287 takes place on Saturday 8 April at the Miami-Dade Arena in Miami.
The early prelims will begin at 11 pm BST (3 pm PT, 5 pm CT, 6 pm ET), with the regular prelims following at 1.30 am BST on Sunday 9 April (5.30 pm PT, 7.30 pm CT, 8.30 pm ET on Saturday).
