Legendary referee John McCarthy, now a commentator and analyst podcast owner, understands why the UFC decided to stage a superfight between Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz.
“This is a smart UFC move, a very smart move,” said Big John in another episode of his podcast. “It’s simple – since Jon Jones left the light heavyweight division, the division immediately faded. Yes, Blachowicz beat Reyes, became champion, and he is a worthy champion, I’m not going to underestimate him, but since Jon left, the division, which had been one of the strongest in the roster for a long time, immediately lost its interest. Light heavyweights have shone in the UFC for a very long time, but now the division does not have the same aura. Izzy’s coming can bring this aura back. “
As a reminder, the light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Israel Adesanya will be the main event of UFC 259, which will take place on March 6, presumably in Las Vegas.
