Another great matchup at UFC 234 in Australia sees Israel Adesanya go up against Anderson Silva on Saturday 9th of February 2019 at the sold out Rod Laver Arena.
The great Brazilian Anderson Silva is now 41-years old and although the fighting fire in him still burns strong, he is a big underdog for this co-main event.
Israel Adesanya Vs Anderson Silva Betting Odds
In the Israel Adesanya Vs Anderson Silva betting lines, Israel Adesanya is the bookmakers red hot favourite at -550 at Betway Sports, while you can bet the underdog Anderson Silva as big as +450 with William Hill if you fancy an upset.
Israel Adesanya looks to be one of the most exciting UFC prospects for years in the 185 lb weight division. After an outstanding KO victory over Derek Brunson last time, Adesanya looks the real deal. He has size, reach, movement, timing and a skillset we rarely see in the UFC.
Adesanya is a new breed of cage fighter and although he may lack experience in the grappling department, he has already displayed a good level of takedown defence and his judgement of distance is second to none, so he should hold no fears over the speed of his ageing rival and hero.
