Adesanya has no interest in a fifth fight with Pereira

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya explained why he is not eager to hold another fight with the current titleholder Alex Pereira.

Recall, previously the Brazilian and the Nigerian crossed paths four times: two fights in kickboxing remained for Pereira, and in MMA the score is equal - 1:1.

"I know I only have a few fights left in my career. So imagine if I beat Pereira again, what are they going to say? That the score is 3-2 in his favor, let's make the series to four wins. Why would I do that?

You can see why he wants me back. He needs a fight with me. You know why I didn't call him out? Because I don't need to. Deep down inside they know I feel better than them in this situation, I sit back and enjoy myself. I did what I had to do, the saga is over. I have other opponents I would like to get revenge on later," Adesanya said on The MMA Hour show.
