Jan Blachowicz is going to win because he will make the other fighter punch himself out. The fight will happen in March 6-7. In December 2020, a fight between two people was announced. It also became a present for New Year’s Day. It is not only good for the fans who like both fighters, but also for all MMA fans.
How the fight unfolded
After Jon Jones announced a move to the heavyweight division and vacated his light heavyweight title in 2020, the first challenger for the belt was Jan Blachowicz. The title bout took place just a month after he was released by Jones. Blachowicz’s opponent was Dominic Reyes, who had previously given a good fight to Knucklebones.
A long time ago, the middleweight champion challenged the new flyweight champion. But he did not settle down after that. Two weeks after his second title defense, he was looking for a fight with the new flyweight champion again.
Blachowicz started to get momentum after the third round. He was able to control Adesanya a couple times, and then Jan took him down. It was hard for Israel because he is lighter than his opponent.
In the last round of the fight, Adesanya was worn down. But in the first round, Blachowicz took it to the ground and that happened again in the fourth round. They were about to start punching each other with ten seconds left but then a siren rang out and they had to stop.
In his post-fight interview, Adesanya was humble. He said that he did not sleep last night and that the fight didn’t go as he had planned. But weight played a role in it. Izzy also announced that he won’t be fighting in this division for a while and will move back to middleweight. Blachowicz paid tribute to his opponent, noting that Izzy was hitting harder than expected.
“I knew I would beat my opponent because I am stronger and bigger than he is. I was just waiting for the right moment to move him. I had to box more, work with my left a lot more, and apply pressure in different ways. Maybe next time will be Glover Teixeira while he is in good form. Now that this fight is over, I want to spend time with my family again. If Glover asks me first while it’s still not too late, then it’s okay.” Blachowicz told Joe Rogan as they were leaving the ring.
Before the fight, Israel said that ‘Polish power’ was not important to him. He had seen Brazilian, Cuban, Australian and American power. All kinds of power are the same in general. But then Poland showed him a lesson and he will have to think about it more now. And the main thing is that he cannot really expect to fight Jon Jones now.
