Blaydes vs. Lewis Preview

Jan Blachowicz

  • MMA Record: 27-8-0

Blachowicz is a fighter that never fails to display his defensive prowess even against heavy hitters. He is careful and is rarely seen out of position meaning he can handle Adesanya’s quick and powerful attacks.

The light heavyweight fighter only recorded one loss since 2017, against Thiago Santos where he suffered a third-round TKO. Nonetheless, he continued to record win after win following that matchup.

Some of the tricks under his sleeve include a deep understanding of his own range and reflexes, giving him an opportunity to perform strong counters. And since 15 of the knockouts Adesanya recorded came from his opponents rushing into him and leaving their chins unexposed, Blachowicz’s style of fighting can easily avoid this as he tends to lean towards a defensive manner during the early stages of the fight and is rarely seen overextending.

Israel Adesanya

  • MMA Record: 20-0-0

Being undefeated, Adesanya has the advantage of coming into the fight to go with an undeniable amount of confidence. His UFC record and the UFC 259 odds speaks for his skill, putting him ahead of most fighters in his division.

He has the ability to pace the fight according to his techniques, making him if his opponents give him the space for it. Being a master at kickboxing, he can throw swift and powerful strikes from unexpected angles.

As quick as he strikes, he is also difficult to hit. He throws kicks to distance himself from his opponent, bringing it together with fast head movement. Furthermore, Adesanya balances his offense through quality defense and the ability to roll with strikes.
