Khabib made predictions for the fights Adesanya – Cannonier and Volkanovski – Holloway
Former UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov made predictions for the main fights of the UFC 276 tournament, which will be held on the night of July 3 in Las Vegas.
The event will headline a middleweight title fight between champion Israel Adesanya and Jared Cannonier. In the second most important event, the belt holder in the featherweight division, Alexander Volkanovski, will face Max Holloway for the third time.
“I have to say that Adesanya vs. Cannonier will be a very close fight. But I think that Adesanya is ahead of Kannonier if we are talking about class. He is a little faster on the stand, he has more experience. I give 70 to 30 in favor of Adesanya.
As for the Volkanovski-Holloway fight, I'm really impressed with Alex's recent performances. I like Holloway, nothing personal, but I think Volkanovski will defend his title, ”Khabib said in an interview with the UFC.
