Ultimate Fighting Championship declared today that UFC 236 on April 13th will feature an interim middleweight title fight between leading 185 pound contenders Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya.
Gastelum (15-3, 1 no competition ) most recently had his struggle against middleweight champion Robert Whittaker cancelled at the last minute due to a hernia from Whittaker that necessitated surgery. Whittaker is presently recovering from the injury and will come back in the next half of 2019. Before his struggle cancellation, Gastelum made a split decision over fellow leading contender Jacare Souza and knocked out former champion Michael Bisping.
Adesanya (16-0) has successfully transitioned from elite kickboxer to among the greatest strikers in mixed martial arts. “The previous Stylebender” has gone 5-0 at the UFC including recent victories over contenders Brad Tavares and Derek Brunson as well as former champion Anderson Silva less than two weeks back from the replacement main event for UFC 234.
Here’s what MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas had to say about the bout:
“Stylistically, if Adesanya can continue to keep this fight standing, he clearly has an advantage with his elite kickboxing history and striking skill-set. Gastelum has power on the feet and poses issues as a southpaw, but he is almost certainly needs to take this fight to the floor to acquire it. It’s easy to presume that this is a great stylistic matchup for Adesanya, but maybe we’re underestimating Gastelum here. Gastelum has confronted some of the greatest fighters on the planet at middleweight as a undersized 185-pounder and has performed nicely. That being said, Adesanya is on a mad rise right now has a tremendous quantity of support from the betting public so I’m going to open him as a -185 betting favored with all the comeback on Gastelum being +155.”
