ADESANYA TO WIN BY TKO/KO IN ROUNDS 2 OR 3 (WAS 7/2) @ 11/2

Blachowicz v Adesanya Preview

Since making his debut just 1120 days ago, Israel Adesanya will make the walk to the Octagon in Vegas with the middleweight title above his name and the light heavyweight belt just a touch away, which will make him the earliest champ-champ in the company's history.

Adesanya has lit up our screens over the past three years and accumulated a record that would rival almost anyone, with Anderson Silva, Kelvin Gastelum, Robert Whittaker, Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa all with big green Ws next to them since 2019.

What makes "The Last Stylebender" so exceptional is not just his outrageous confidence in his spectacular ability, but it's how poetically he lives up to his nickname. Throwing in question mark kicks like they are straight punches, and mixing up his striking like the flow of a bee - he truly is one of the last few in the sport who can do what he does.

Mix this in with the fact he boasts the second-best takedown defence in UFC middleweight history at 86.5%, and there is little doubt arguing he is not just one of the pound for pound best, but with a win over Jan Blachowicz, he's also in GOAT contention.

If the Nigerian is to win the fight, it'll likely be via TKO/KO, which is priced at 5/4. Adesanya has racked up 15 TKO/KO wins from his 20 wins and as he proved against Costa, he will eventually break you down by butchering your limbs and attacking the head, which inevitably threw the Brazilian into the deep end with the middleweight champion finishing with ground and pounds. However, with five decision wins including the likes of Romero, Silva, Marvin Vettori and Gastelum prove he is more than just a top tier striker, but an all-around exceptional mixed martial artist.

Adesanya is a phenom. His name will be there as one of the best strikers in UFC history, and if he can get the job done on Saturday, it'll also be up in lights as the quickest champ-champ ever and at the same time, perhaps make him the best double champion there is.

Moving onto the defending champion and Blachowicz comes in as the underdog at 15/8, but at 7/2 to TKO/KO the legendary figure of Adesanya, the Pole will be looking at taking his status to the next level. After registering a 2-4 record in his first six UFC fights, the now light heavyweight champion is on a four-fight win streak since losing to Thiago Santos and he seems to have found his momentum.

A brutal KO win over Luke Rockhold will go down in history as the clearest example of his 'legendary Polish power' you'll ever need to see, and a decision win over Ronaldo Souza and a fantastic KO win over Corey Anderson would throw his name right into title contention.

Blachowicz then snatched the title with another great showing against Dominick Reyes, delivering a ruthless TKO on Fight Island back in September, ironically enough, as the co-main event of Adesnaya v Costa. The 38-year-old is one of the hardest hitters around and if he clips Adesanya as Gastelum did back in 2019, it'll be Poland who puts their flag the highest on Saturday.

However, despite the famed knockout power of the champion, only eight of his 28 wins come in this manner, and more importantly, not a single one of the knockouts have come past the second round. At the same time, Blachowicz also boasts of nine submissions and 10 decisions, making him as all-rounded as it gets in terms of his record.

If the Pole is to get it done and defend his belt, however, with the striking of Adesanya as good as it gets, Blachowicz is going to have to put his legendary Polish power to the max.
