With Israel Adesanya seemingly unstoppable at middleweight, the last two men to lose to him will now face off to see which one deserves to hang around in the top five. Both are young and getting better, so either could vie for a second title shot at some point in the future. That makes this matchup important for the future of the division.

MMA analysts Reed Kuhn and Ian Parker are here to give you their best bets for UFC Fight Night.

Prelims start at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN+, and the main card begins at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
