UFC 259 is just around the corner with the main event headlining one of the most anticipated matches of this year between Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Light Heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.

A lot of people are seeing Israel Adesanya as a winner in this match-up and Izzy already started his mind games before the fight. Talking about this in the latest interview with MMA fighting, Blachowicz says,

“That’s what they say on the internet, I don’t believe in this thing, I focus on me, on my preparation, on my camp. I train with faster, lighter guys, I train with guys from my category. I also train with heavyweight guys.”

“Because we will see on the day, one day before the fight, and fight day his size, and then we’re going to be ready for everything. That’s why I train with faster guys, lighter guys, my category, and the heavyweight guys. Because I want to be ready for everything.”

“This as you know is a game, this is business and you have to be ready for everything.” When it is further asked that Adesanya is big enough for Light Heavyweights or not Blachowicz says, “I will tell you after the fight. I don’t know,”

“I just saw him a couple of times before his fight against Paulo Costa and me at the same event. So I just saw him a couple of times but I don’t know. We will see in the fight, on the day of the fight, and after the fight. You can call me and we will see.”

“But for sure, he’s going to feel something different than he’s felt before. Because at 205, everything is different. Power is different. Speed is different. Even if you train with light heavyweight guys and heavyweight guys, this is only sparring.”

“The fight got its own rules and he’s going to feel it. This is good for me. 205 is my category. I do this all my life. I feel everything inside the octagon over there. It’s going to be better for me.”

Blachowicz is ready to show legendary polish power to Adesanya

Jan Blachowicz states that Israel Adesanya is moving to Light Heavyweight for the first time and this is going to be a completely different ground. He added, “Because I’ve got the legendary Polish power and when he feels it, he feels it for real, You will see.”

“After first kick or the first punch, he’s going to know what I’m talking about when I’m talking about the legendary Polish power. If I’m going to have a chance to take him down, I will do this,”

“I will try to submit him. I will do ground and pound, something like this. All fights start to stand up and I also like fighting to stand up. So I’m preparing something for him in striking. You’ll just have to wait until March 6 and watch the fight.”

“Second round, KO by high kick left leg for this guy, Yes this time kick. This is what I see. In this moment when we’re talking.”
