Israel Adesanya Vs. Jan Blachowicz: Who will start as the favorite?

Even though it is a champion Vs. Champion match but, the odds heavily favor Israel Adesanya. The Last Stylebender’s undefeated record, his experience in title bouts, combined with his supreme striking ability might be the prime factors behind the favorite‘s tag.

Moreover, against Jan he won’t be defending his Middleweight title, which also is a favorable element on his part.

However, the 31-year-old will be stepping up on the weight ladder and will compete as a Light Heavyweight, which could give Blachowicz an edge, as he has only fought in one division which is the concerned 205-weight class and besides that, the Polish fighter will be defending his title for the first time. So, might be determined to showcase the spectacle of Polish power again.

Therefore, who will ultimately prevail is a matter of the future, and at this time only conjectures can be drawn.
