Adesanya is likely to come out with power in his swing along ith a more aggressive demeanor. He has eleven knockouts. Costa (Borrachinah) will be more calculated and is a stronger appearing fighter. Costa will be approaching this fight with an attempt to land a big one on the chin of Adesanya but look for him to maintain a distance and keep the fight going.
