8 Most Anticipated Potential And Upcoming UFC Fights
8. Jon Jones Vs. Israel Adesanya
This is a bit of a reach because of all the fights listed in this article this one, as of right now, seems to be the least likely to actually happen. Even if it does it’s probably not happening until late 2020 or even 2021.
That being said, Jones and Adesanya have been teasing fans as they go back and forth on social media. Many UFC followers would’ve loved to have seen Jon Jones fight a prime Anderson Silva, but unfortunately that fight never came to fruition.
Of course, Stylebender still has a long way to go before he reaches Jon Jones’ level. He still has to beat Robert Whittaker and probably defend his belt two or three times after that should he indeed beat Whittaker. However, Adesanya is the closest we’ve ever seen in style (no pun intended) to that of Anderson Silva, and he just put up a fight of the year candidate in his win for the Interim Middleweight title against Kelvin Gastelum. With Jon Jones running out of opponents at Light Heavyweight, it stands to reason we could see this potential dream fight one day.
Here’s hoping that if we ever do it lives up to the hype.
