Next UFC is 276: Adesanya vs Cannonier - Official Discussion Thread.

So next up on Sat 2nd July, we have UFC 276 Adesanya vs Cannonier!

Israel Adesanya record is:
22-1-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)

Israel Adesanya is coming off a win over the beloved Bobby Knuckles Robert Whittaker, prior to that it was a win over "hey yo guuuuys! Goonies star Marvin Vettori.

Jared Cannonier record is:
15-5-0 (Win-Loss-Draw)

Jared Cannonier is coming off a win over Derek Brunson, prior to that it was a win over Kelvin Gastelum.

I've just realised, the roster of fighters that these guys have beat between them is:

  • Kelvin Gastelum
  • Derek Brunson
  • Marvin Vettori
  • Robert Whittaker
  • Jack Hermansson
  • Anderson Silva
  • Paulo Costa
  • Yoel Romero

Murder's row right there 儭仁

Also - the hardcore fans will notice that Alex Pereira is on the main card here, he KO'd Adesanye in the second kickboxing bout, you can see the UFC beginning to build the story around this already. It's well worth a watch, Pereira's power is very interesting although Izzy is just a completely different fighter now.

Also, the prelims on this card are INSANE! Robbie Lawler is back, Ian Garry is hoping to get another highlight reel in as he pitches himself as Ireland's next Conor McGregor (not sure the fans are buying into that tho), Cerrone is back again, Uriah Hall is on the prelims as is Maycee Barber and Jessica-Rose Clark (loving the Harley Quinn theme she has adopted) - the whole prelims card is bonkers

  • Adesanya (but I don't think it's going to be a walk in the park)
  • Max (This is my heart talking, but I love them both - seen the clip in Embedded episode 3 where they meet in the car park, watching the whole episode soon)
  • Pereira (I am so intrigued, he seemed a bit gassed in his last outing tho)
  • O'Malley (he's gonna get tested!)

Probably biggest OMalley test yep, and I cant help it but I get super hyped watching him fight

Me to mate! Did OMalley come up through the contender series? I keep meaning to write a post called 'How to get on Dana White's contender series" with a couple of interviews with fighters that have managed to get there, I know a couple of MMA pros that made it on at least

Yeah that's the one, when Snoop Dogg was commentating with Faber and couldn't stop screaming "O'Malley" and that just sealed the fate xD

Shit I remember that now...

I saw O'Malley on embedded last night driving his pink Lambo - also coming into Vegas on a private jet... how much money is this guy making outside of the UFC do you think?

I'm fairly certain that he's one of the top earners outside of fighter pay right now. He's got his own merch on the UFC website for example, and only a handful have that (think any greatest fighters in last few years). The lad has built a powerful brand and very fast, taking his time and picking his fights, as I recall he negotiated all his own (or at least used to) contracts and deals as he's very business minded. There's no way of knowing how much bank he's making really outside fighter pay reports... rented lambo's and jets are not the same as ownership but he is probably right up there earning plenty unlike most boring fighters!

rented lambo's and jets

Always rent depreciating assets.. .

Plus his podcast.. The Sugar Show. I wonder who represents him from a business perspective? he's getting sound advice whoever it is.

Maybe he has mentors, but like I said he used to say he does all his own biz deals. The podcast has sponsors, and he has sponsors for Twitch and Instagram, probably YouTube as well... he's attacking it from all angles. He's already sorted for life, as long as he can keep his career going a few more years with enough hype moments.

I am absolutely stoked for this card!! Adesanyas been my favorite fighter since he signed to the UFC! Hoping for a banger against Cannonier but Im even more excited to see the Strickland-Perreira fight since theyve said the winner gets the next shot! Not to mention Volk-Holloway 3, and always entertaining Sean OMalley! 休

I know mate, this has crept up on me...! I knew Izzy was coming but I only just realised how stacked the main card and the prelims was for UFC 276 when I posted this

See the news ref Jon Jones recently? Dana White reckons he is good to go now, just waiting on opponent.

Oh yeah! The summer cards are always the best! But I did see that about Jon Jones, He says hes hoping for him to fight either Stipe or Francis! Either one is good for me! 仄領儭

Cannonier was a real let down for me, like a race horse with the handbrake on. I get that it's just a perspective because I am not in there but he just let Adesanya make him look like rabbit caught in headlights. Shame really but I guess that's what Adesanya is best at. On to the Alex Pereira fight where personally I think you see the best version of Adesayna ever, he'll dominate Pereira.

Did anyone see watch Ian Garry? I was impressed, getting better, less focus on getting that highlight reel, more focused on overall performance. Great cardio, maintaining speed and flow all they way through, also took some good shots so chin looks good
