21-1. This is a stat that Israel is following Adesanya’s record. One of the most famous fighters of his generation, “The Last Style” made his way relatively easily in the middleweight category. His greatness is distinguished by his skill, speed, and ease of exchanging southern and Orthodox positions.
At UFC 259, Adesanya came very close to becoming the last two division champions. Unfortunately for the 31-year-old, there was a lot to overcome Jan Blahovic’s struggle. Adesanya unanimously accepted her first defeat in the UFC.
Four months later, it’s probably time to think about whether Adesanya and Blaxovic or Teixeia (depending on how UFC 267 passes) should be on the bench for the championship fight in 2022. Assuming he remains the middleweight king at the time, Israeli Adesanya deserves something else. crack at UFC lightweight gold:
# 3. Adesania’s dominance in the middleweight division continues
After Adesanya’s 20-0 unbeaten streak rose to the lightweight division, he now continued on his path to victory. At middleweight, Adesanya is undoubtedly the best fighter the division has seen since Anderson Silva’s key years.
Adesanya, who has often won the “Night Fight” and “Night Out” awards, was close to losing to Joel Romero at UFC 248. Based on his headline defense against Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori since then, Romero has been a terrifying incident. blip on medium weight radar.
If the “owner of the last style” is able to defeat former champion Robert Whittaker once again, he could have climbed the mountains to rise to middleweight. With that in mind, Adesanya will have to try again to secure the two-time champion glory he missed earlier this year.
# 2. Adesanya’s recent improvement in the octagon
From battle to battle, Adesanya continues to show improvements in all aspects of his game. The natural striker “Last Style Owner” is occasionally canceled due to a less-than-impressive fight.
This was especially evident in UFC 259, where an experienced Blakhovich was able to maneuver a kickboxer. Bla Adovi olgan, who learned from Adesania’s difficult but controversial victory over Joel Romero, exposed several shortcomings in Adesania’s defensive play. Thus, the “Polish power” slowed him down for most of the struggle.
Adesanya proved he learned a lesson in defending his next UFC 263 middleweight title against Marvin Vettori. Vettori, a self-crushing grappler, found that Adesania worked hard to improve his removal defense.
If Adesanya continues on this path, keeping his incredible ability at an insane level, he can be relentless in both weight classes.
# 1. It’s a fight for money
Adesania’s first attack in the lightweight category has been met with controversy in some quarters. Many believed that Blahovic’s future opponent, Glover Teixeira, was more deserving of Adesania’s strike earlier this year.
While it is easy to argue for Teixeira, it became clear that there was more money in the Adesanya scandal. While it shouldn’t be the main deciding factor here, the UFC is still a business. Dana White, like others, saw dollar signs on the call.
The often-openly middleweight champion has captured the imagination of fans over the years. His gravity will probably increase as he is disturbed by Blachovich’s return match. Their first clash made an impressive 800,000 purchases. There is a good shot of crossing the million mark in the long-awaited second contest.
Perhaps the prospect of a clash between Adesanya and Teixeira could be more attractive. If Teixeira overcomes the “Polish Power” and completes her long journey from gold in the lightweight category, the story itself tells. Originally assigned to Adesanya, Teixeira does what the “Last Style Master” couldn’t do and now has to protect her from it. Its dramatic potential is almost cinematic.
Such an event would scream money if it had to happen. In any case, if Adesanya has to try to get champ-champ status again, the advertising in the lightweight category will intensify.
