Double Chance: Israel Adesanya by KO/TKO or on Points (+125) - Considering Adesanya has no submission wins and Whittaker has not lost by submission since 2011, it's easy to like the difference between Adesanya's straight up line and this prop. With Whittaker's low takedown rate, this fight will likely be mostly a kickboxing match. Whittaker's last win was a very close split decision in which he was knocked down twice, and Adesanya has already scored eight knockdowns in just six UFC bouts. Also owning 75 kickboxing wins to go with his 17 in MMA, Adesanya may be the best striker in the UFC, pointing to a potential upset if this fight spends most of its time at striking range.
