In a recent YouTube video, Israel Adesanya explained why he thinks Jiri Prochazka will win against Alex Pereira.

“I’m going to go Jiri because we’re the chosen few,” Adesanya said, as quoted by “But also, I think he might have learned from his mistake, because people don’t understand, and it also makes things interesting — if [Jiri beats Alex] then it’s a trifecta, a trilogy, yeah.
