Who is Israel Adesanya?
The 32-year-old middleweight prospect is 12-0 with an unblemished record that includes nine first-round finishes. He’s been a pro since 2011, but he’s already amassed some serious hype for his unique skillset and the way he handles himself as a professional.
In January, Adesanya picked up a win over perennial contender Brad Tavares on the main card of UFC 221 in Perth, Australia on pay-per-view.

Israel Adesanya Career
Silva is an all-time great and one of the most decorated strikers in MMA history. He’s also 43 years old and lost five of his last seven fights before falling by unanimous decision to light heavyweight champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 234 earlier this year. So, it should be a fascinating contest between two athletes looking to prove something at UFC Glendale on Saturday night.
Hiscoe’s Analysis: This battle of unbeaten prospects is an interesting one because you could argue that Silva has nothing left to prove as an athlete, but Adesiana is just starting out his career and will either build or lose momentum off of this bout. The Israeli star has been calling for a fight with “The Spider” since his first dance inside the Octagon and has definitely done enough to earn it after picking up three straight victories over Tavares, Brad Katona and Derek Brunson. This is a bout that Silva needs to win if he hopes to get another shot inside the Octagon against someone other than Adesiana, so expect him to come out strong to prove why he’s still one of the best fighters in the world.
Hiscoe’s Prognosis: It seems like every fight this guy (Silva) has under the UFC banner ends with some controversy or another, but I don’t see how it can end any differently in this fight given Adesiana’s striking style. The former “Style Bender” has finished almost all of his fights in devastating fashion and while winning by KO or TKO is always more likely than a submission victory, it doesn’t mean that’s what will actually happen. Adesiana does everything well enough to win this fight anywhere the action goes and I expect him to pick up another highlight reel stoppage victory on Saturday night.
Cynthia Calvillo vs. Poliana Botelho
Calvillo (7-1) began competing in mixed martial arts just five years ago as a 22-year-old after making her pro debut as a boxer four years prior to that. In mixed martial arts, “The Calvary” has been impressive from the start with six of her seven victories coming by way of stoppage which includes three submissions and three knockouts. Her only loss came in her UFC debut against now-champion Rose Namajunas. Calvillo was a late replacement to fight former strawweight champion Carla Esparza at UFC 219 last December and she won by unanimous decision. In April, Calvillo returned from an extended hiatus to take on landmine specialist Poliana Botelho (7-2) at UFC on FOX 29 and scored a clear-cut unanimous decision victory to stay undefeated inside the Octagon.
