UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya tried to become not only the fifth champ-champ in company history, but to do so while remaining undefeated. He did neither when he moved up to light heavyweight and took on UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.
Why did the Nigerian Kiwi out of City Kickboxing in Auckland, New Zealand stumble? In this video, we’ll examine the details of Adesanya’s takedown defense and why its failures helped lead to the loss.
However, we’ll also provide the proper context on the loss. While the setback certainly doesn’t help Adesanya’s stock, there is an overstatement being made about what this means for Adesanya’s ability to go up in weight, take on wrestling-centric foes, face Jon Jones and more.
This is part one of a two-part series on the UFC 259 main event.
