Pereira - Hill: Adesanya bets on a knockout in the first half of the fight

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya shared his prediction for the upcoming title fight between Alex Pereira and Jamal Hill.

The bout between the Brazilian and the American will be the main event of UFC 300, which takes place on April 13 in Las Vegas.

"I don't think Jamal is scared because his opponent has scary knockout power. Alex can be knocked out too. Of course, dodging leg kicks is a very difficult task, but I know Hill has some skills for that.

Five-round fight... It's going to be a slow start. Jamal will try to get to Alex's head, just like he did in the fight against Johnnie Walker. I think Hill will win. It will be a knockout in the first two rounds. Maybe in the first half of the third," BJ Penn quoted Adesanya as saying.
