Montel Jackson vs Andre Soukhamthath / Kelvin Gastelum vs Israel Adesanya

We have been gifted a Middleweight Interim title fight as the co-main event for this weekend’s UFC 236 PPV, and what a bloody good fight It is! (15-3-0) Middleweight contender Kelvin Gastelum takes on UFC rising superstar Israel Adesanya who is yet to have been defeated inside the octogen (16-0-0).

Although Kelvin has a wrestling background it’s very rare that we see it, in this type of fight Kelvin could give himself a huge advantage if Adesanya can’t successfully sprawl or fend off the takedown. That said, I’ll give Israel the advantage given his huge size and half decent clinch control. He will fend any type of takedown attempt and make Kelvin pay for it with elbows and knees. read more
