Check out the latest UFC 287 odds for UFC middleweight champion Alex Pereira vs. Israel Adesanya 2 in Miami this Saturday, April 8.

The title rematch headlines today's deep fight card at Miami-Dade Arena in Florida. The early preliminary card streams on ESPN+ (6:30 p.m. ET), the regular prelims air on ESPN and ESPN+ (8 p.m. ET), and the main card is available via ESPN+ pay-per-view (10 p.m. ET).

In the main event, Pereira (7-1) looks for his first UFC title defense when he rematches ex-champ Adesanya (23-2), who suffered a fifth-round TKO loss in the duo's first meeting back in November. Pereira also owns a pair of pro kickboxing wins over Adesanya. However, Pereira remains an underdog with the latest UFC 287 odds.

In the UFC 287 co-main event, welterweight contender and heavy favorite Gilbert Burns (21-5) takes on Jorge Masvidal (35-16), a former title challenger who's on a three-fight skid since his 2019 "BMF" win over Nate Diaz.

Fight-week changes to the UFC 287 fight card include:

  • Sunday: Karl Williams has replaced Chris Barnett (undisclosed reasons) in a bout with heavyweight Chase Sherman. It'll kick off the regular prelims on ESPN.
  • Monday: With Li Jingliang injured, his welterweight bout with Michael Chiesa has been canceled.  As a result, middleweights Gerald Meerschaert vs. Joe Pyfer have been promoted from the early prelims to the regular prelims, according to the UFC.
  • Wednesday: The full UFC 287 fight card, bout order, and start times now appear complete on UFC.com.
  • Friday: Christian Rodriguez missed weight by one pound (137) and was fined 20% of his purse. All other fighters made weight.
  • Saturday: Prior to the start of UFC 287, officials announced the cancellation of Karl Williams vs. Chase Sherman due to a medical issue for Sherman. As a result, Cynthia Calvillo vs. Lupita Godinez has been elevated from the early prelims to the regular prelims.
