Israel Adesanya says the time for talking is over.

Adesanya is set to headline UFC 287 on Saturday night in Miami as he rematches Alex Pereira in MMA. The two fought back in November with Pereira winning a fifth-round TKO in a bout he was well on his way to losing. It was the third time they have fought as the two fought twice in kickboxing with Pereira winning both as well, including one by KO.

Now, ahead of the rematch in MMA, Adesanya has made it clear this is his final chance to beat Pereira and plans to come for his head.

“F**k the belt, I’m coming for his head. This is my 8-Mile moment. This is it, one more shot at this. I’ve put everything on my back. I’ve done everything in my power to make sure I do the worst thing to this man this weekend. I’m done with this talking sh*t,” Adesanya said at the UFC 287 press conference.

Adesanya wears dog collar

At the press conference, Israel Adesanya also wore a dog collar to it as he said he is a dog waiting to be unleashed. Throughout the press conference, he was fired up saying he was done with talking and just wanted to fight.

“I’m a dog. It’s a dog collar and I’m about to be unleashed,” Adesanya said, with fans starting to bark afterward.

Israel Adesanya enters his UFC 287 fight against Alex Pereira having lost for the first time at 185lbs and is now the challenger vying for the belt. However, he is the betting favorite which surprised him even though he is 0-3 against Pereira in combat sports. Yet, Adesanya has made it clear he is confident he has all the tools to not only beat Pereira at UFC 287 but will finish him to get his middleweight title back.
