Between 1.35 and 1.45 are the odds on Israel Adesanya’s win in the fight against Jan Blachowicz, which will take place on March 6 at the UFC 259 event. On the other hand, the chances for the Pole on paper are small, due to the odds between 3.10 and 3.40, which would mean that those willing to invest in his victory will bring three times the amount.
Of course, if Blachowicz manages to defend the title, he is convinced he will. After all, he is already used to the status of an outsider. He has achieved six of his last seven victories with just that status. "I'm always an outsider and I always win.
It's great and I'm happy. I could be an outsider every time. But after I win this fight, and I believe I will, maybe people will finally start believing in me and start showing me respect." "But, it's not something I care about, "Blachowicz told MMA Fighting, adding something about previous fights in which he was also distrusted: "There's an interesting story after the fight against Luke Rockhold in which I was also an outsider.
A guy passed me by and thanked me, saying he got rich because of me." "I asked him what happened, and he told me that mine the victory brought in $ 50,000. It's nice to hear something like that, maybe even after this fight, there will be someone who made big money.
Pole is focused on himself
Adesanya has so far not shown much respect for his opponents, and for now, he is not even noticed when it comes to the Poles, to whom he will be a challenger this way. "It's not my job to know what he's thinking.
I've focused on myself, my camp, and preparations, the main thing is to put injuries aside and be ready for anything he will prepare for me." "I don't care if he has respect for me or no. I don't care if he thinks about how he will go into the heavyweight division after he beats me.
The most important thing to me is to be in the best shape ever and to beat him." "That's all I'm thinking about. He's a great fighter, he's a real champion and there are no defeats. With a 20-0 ratio you have to be good, but now is the perfect time to go to 20-1 ", Jan's attitude towards what awaits him is clear.
On March 6, we will get an answer to who prepared better, as well as whether Adesanya can be just as good and dominant among guys bigger than himself.
