Eugene Bareman, coach of the UFC champion Israel Adesanya (20-0), answered questions about the weight in which his player will compete with Jan Blachowicz (27-8).
“We are not gaining weight. The science of gaining weight and shedding it will not be a factor in this fight, because we decided to go in the usual weight for Israel. Hopefully this gives us the edge we need to defeat Blachowicz.
I don’t think that with any amount of time or any amount of extra mass that Israel can muster, he will become physically stronger than Jan, so we decided to invest in a more rewarding effort.
Here is the main test – to fight opponents who are bigger and heavier than you, as well as smaller fighters. Champions are not the best fighters in the world, they are the best fighters in their divisions. Few manage to become the best regardless of weight, ”said Eugene Bareman, confirming that Adesanya is ready to take on a fight with a heavyweight.
