Blachowicz has defeated Nigeria’s Israel Adesanya to retain his light heavyweight title.
This is coming after Jan Blackowicz (28-8) was awarded an upset unanimous decision victory over Israel Adesanya (20-1). The judges had handed scores of 49-46, 49-45, and 49-45 in favor of the Polish champion.
Adesanya had intended to burnish the legend as he aimed to become the fifth fighter in UFC history to become a two-weight champion simultaneously.

The Nigerian had stepped into the octagon against Jan Blachowicz, the light-heavyweight title-holder, in a bid to add to his middleweight championship honours.
The Pole is bigger, more experienced, and older, but Adesanya had said none of these qualities troubled him.
With his defeat, the “Stylebender” has failed in his recent bid to join Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, Amanda Nunes, and Henry Cejudo as one of the five fighters in UFC history to hold titles in two divisions simultaneously.
