It’s fight week, the days get longer and the hype gets bigger. UFC 259 is in sight and we won’t look back.
The first super-fight of the year, Israel Adesanya vs Jan Błachowicz. Speed and precision against power and strength.
Israel Adesanya is the top dog of the middleweight roster, and he wants more than one belt so he’s going for two instead. Arguably the best active fighter right now, twenty men have tried to derail the stylebender but none have succeeded and instead have fallen into their own graves.
You all know what Adesanya is capable of and how he dominates the stand up game. You want to wait for him to throw? get blasted with brutal kicks to the calf, wearing you down round by round and minute by minute, you want to go for the knockout and embarrass him? counter punched and dropped on the ground and it’s you being humiliated.
Jan Błachowicz on the other hand is a different animal and they’re a reason why his nickname is ‘Polish Power’, this man is a bull once he steps into the Octagon, he embraces the pre fight nerves and replaces them with pure fire in his soul.
One shot and it’s lights out for you. Dominick Reyes challenged him for the belt, he ended up on his back having bricks for hands reigned down upon him, it only took Jan 2 rounds to finish him when Jones couldn’t do it in 5.
He will finish you and make you question where you are and what you name is, the new champion is ready for war and he will bring the fire and flames.
This is the fight we all want to see, so brace yourselves ladies and gentlemen. There’s going to be fireworks.
