Jan Blachowicz v Israel Adesanya Predictions & Tips
£20 bet returns £42 with Bet365
Jan Blachowicz is all about power. The 37-year-old has won three of the last four fights via strikes, so the light-heavyweight champion will approach this bout in good confidence. He is likely to be the heaviest hitter than Adesanya, and if he does so, the fight will be over. But the problem for him is to find the opportunity to land that big shot.
Adesanya’s win over Yoel Romero a year ago clearly shows that the New Zealander is well capable of negating a big-hitter. On that occasion, we didn’t have an exciting fight, in fact, it was quite boring, yet ‘The Last Stylebender’ found the way to retain his crown.

Who will win Jan Blachowicz v Israel Adesanya fight?
We will likely see something similar this weekend as Adesanya has a well-thought game plan and uses his great kicking technique to keep opponents at a distance. He has a clear advantage over Blachowicz in both reach and leg reach, and we expect him to hit without being hit.
Surely if Blachowicz can find the way to put his hands on Adesanya and get him to the mat, things can change, but the likelihood of this happening is small. We expect Adesanya to fight at range and keep hitting the champion with strikes that eventually will make the difference. When Blachowicz tries to get closer to him, he will probably punish him with heavier blows, so we do expect that he will eventually break down Blachowicz, and the value is on backing him to prevail by KO/TKO.
