Professional fighters shared their thoughts on the fight between Jan Blachowicz (27-8) and Israel Adesanya (20-0).
Alexander Rakic: “In my opinion, the chances are 50-50 in this fight. But if there is a lot of struggle and work in the clinch, it will play into the hands of Jan. He is a physically strong dude and he will weigh much more than Israel. “
Drew Dober: “Israel is a real sniper. In my opinion, the impact power does not depend on the weight of the fighter, but on the accuracy and speed. So I believe that accurate and fast Adesanya will take the victory. “
Joseph Benavides: “I love Izzy. He’s incredible. And the fact that he remains undefeated is no coincidence. But when you face a bigger rival … You yourself know how everything works in this sport. So they both have a chance to win. “
Islam Makhachev: “This is a very interesting fight. They both have a great punch. But I think the odds are 55 to 45 in favor of Adesanya. “
Thiago Santos: “Adesanya should be a little favorite. He is fast, long, he has a great sense of distance and footwork. But at the same time, I am sure that if Ian gets hit hard, he will knock him out. “
Jon Jones: “Blachowicz by KO”.
