Nigerian-New Zealand UFC 20 time winning middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya suffers his first defeat to light heavyweight champion, Jan Blachowicz on Sunday.
Jan Blanchowicz defeated the former undefeated Israel Adesanya by a unanimous decision to secure his light heavyweight title.
Adesanya’s attempt to becoming the fifth fighter in UFC history to hold two titles at the same time was futile.
This is the Style Bender’s first loss in his career ruining his track record of 20-0 to 20-1.
In Adesanya’s interview with ESPN, he said that “It didn’t go the way I wanted, but dare to be great”.
The former champion said that this is not a one time fight and that he would be having this fight again, he claimed to not get some things right but he knew what to do, he would need to watch the clip again.
