UFC 236: KELVIN GASTELUM VS ISRAEL ADESANYA OPENING BETTING ODDS

Ultimate Fighting Championship declared today that UFC 236 on April 13th will comprise an interim middleweight title fight between top 185 pound contenders Kelvin Gastelum and Israel Adesanya. Gastelum (15-3, 1 no competition ) most recently had his fight against middleweight champion Robert Whittaker cancelled in the last minute due to a hernia from Whittaker that required operation. Whittaker is currently recovering from the harm and will come back in the next half of 2019. Before his struggle cancellation, Gastelum earned a split decision over fellow top rival Jacare Souza and pumped out former winner Michael Bisping. Adesanya (16-0) has successfully transitioned from elite kickboxer to one of the greatest strikers in mixed martial arts. “The Last Stylebender” has gone 5-0 at the UFC including recent victories over contenders Brad Tavares and Derek Brunson as well as former winner Anderson Silva less than two weeks back in the replacement main event for UFC 234. Here’s what MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas needed to say about the bout: “Stylistically, if Adesanya can keep this battle standing, he definitely has an edge together with his elite kickboxing background and striking skill-set. Gastelum has power on the feet and presents problems like a southpaw, but he is almost certainly needs to take this fight to the ground to win it. It’s easy to assume this is a great stylistic matchup for Adesanya, but perhaps we’re underestimating Gastelum here. Gastelum has confronted a number of the best fighters in the world at middleweight as an undersized 185-pounder and has performed nicely. That having been said, Adesanya is on a mad rise right now has an enormous quantity of support in the betting public so I’m going to open him as a -185 betting favored with the comeback on Gastelum being +155.” Kalikas started the lines for Gastelum vs Adesanya moments ago via Bet DSI —————————————————— UFC 236: Gastelum vs Adesanya April 13, 2019 Location: TBA Main Event — Interim Middleweight Title Kelvin Gastelum +155 Israel Adesanya -185
