UFC 287: Pereira Vs Adesanya 2 Press Conference
UFC 287 press conference looks pretty promising. Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya have already fought once in the past, and the match ended with the victory of the Brazilian kickboxer. Yet, it’s hard to expect the two are gonna sit at each other’s throats on the Pereira vs Adesanya press conference, because “Poatan” doesn’t speak English.
Yet, the rest of the UFC 287 fight card looks pretty promising. Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland are pretty much-underrated trash talkers. But let’s start with the UFC 287 media day.
UFC 287 Media Day
UFC media day took place on Wednesday, April 5th, 2022. You can take a look at it here. It was a great intro for the upcoming UFC 287 press conference.
But I know you are more interested in UFC 287 media day highlights, so here ya go – check this playlist.
The reigning defending 185-pound division champion Alex Pereira says “he’ll never face Israel Adesanya again” after UFC 287 rematch. Yet, his opponent Israel Adesanya vows to “remind people how great I am” in Alex Pereira’s rematch.
Jorge Masvidal didn’t talk much about his opponent. Looking back at his previous incident with Colby Covington, “Gamebred” called Covington “the king of calling cops and sucking cocks”. Gilbert Burns says Jorge Masvidal will be “the new Nate Diaz” of the welterweight division after another loss.
The Rest Of The Main Card
Rob Font says he’s not letting Adrian Yanez take his number in the rankings. Ambitious Adrian Yanez says the division title contender Sean O’Malley “should fight me if he doesn’t wait for the title shot”.
Kevin Holland trashed Colby Covington and didn’t even talk about his opponent Santiago Ponzinibbio. For Holland, “the character Colby plays is pretty dumb”. Santiago Ponzinibbio denied Kevin Holland’s catchweight fight request and told him to “honor the contract”.
Raul Rosas Jr. will show that he’s “levels above” as an 18-year-old targets spot in rankings. His rival Christian Rodriguez says 18-year-old Rosas’ hype “benefits me once”.
Kelvin Gastelum wants to “'reaffirm to myself, I'm one of the baddest dudes in the world”. His opponent Chris Curtis says the “burrito version” of Kelvin Gastelum shows up at Octagon.

Dana White Shuts Down Kevin Holland Vs Jorge Masvidal Trash Talk Attempt
Kevin Holland and Jorge Masvidal are pretty much famous for their controversial personalities. The two took part in a backstage hotel altercation before the UFC 287 press conference. The security had to intervene. As expected, media asked a question on the incident, but Dana White reacted right off the bat.

When asked about the incident, Jorge Masvidal kept it for himself.
“Absolutely nothing,” Masvidal said. “There’s nothing to talk about there. He’s just a d*ck-riding, clout-chasing b*tch. Ain’t nothing to talk about.”
Kevin Holland took the microphone and immediately replied.
“No, that’s not what you were saying yesterday, bro. Watch your f*cking mouth.”
But, unfortunately, Dana White didn't let the trash talk between Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland continue. The UFC head honcho intervened and didn't let the situation escalate.
“Come on, these two aren’t even fighting,” White said. “Knock it off. Do you have a question about these guys and who they’re fighting, or do you just want to start sh*t in here? What’s your question?”
