Sean Strickland expects the UFC to book an immediate rematch between middleweight champion Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya . Pereira (7-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC)  dethroned Adesanya (23-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC) with a come-from-behind TKO win to capture the middleweight title last month at UFC 281. Pereira was able to defeat Adesanya for the third time – with the other two times in kickboxing. With their long-standing history and the stylistic matchup, Strickland thinks the UFC will capitalize by booking another fight between Pereira and Adesanya. “Rankings mean f*ck all nothing,” Strickland told MMA Junkie.
