Having started his professional career in MMA in 2007, he has 35 matches on his record, having won 27 times and defeated 8 times. Of their triumphs, 10 were by decision of the judges, 9 by submission and 8 by knockout. The losses, however, were 5 by decision of the judges, 2 by knockout and one by submission.

Blachowicz went through events like KSW, a Polish event considered one of the best in Europe, before arriving at the UFC. In addition to several achievements at this event, he won the light heavyweight belt, successfully defending the belt twice.
 
However, he only debuted in the UFC in October 2014, when he beat the Swedish Ilir Latifi by technical knockout. In 2015, he was defeated on two occasions, by Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson, consecutively. He eventually recovered later, in 2016, when he beat Igor Pokrajac by unanimous decision.
 
After that, he suffered two more consecutive losses, to Alexander Gustafsson and Patrick Cummings. Such defeats seem to have served as a major inspiration for the Polish, who thereafter amended 8 straight wins and was defeated just once more, by Brazilian Thiago Santos, in early 2019.
 
His most recent fight took place in 2020 at UFC 253, when Jan Blachowicz beat Dominick Reyes by technical knockout, getting a vacant UFC light heavyweight belt. In addition, he won the Performance of the Night award.
 
Now the Polish will enter the octagon with full focus in search of another triumph and aiming to maintain the title of the category.
 
Israel Adesanya is a Nigerian fighter who is 31 years old and is the current UFC middleweight champion. He's moving up one more weight class, challenging Jan Blachowicz for the light heavyweight belt.
 
In the UFC's weight-for-weight ranking, Adesanya is third, and now he will face a new challenge that will not be easy.
 
In his record, he has 20 victories, 15 of which by knockouts and 5 by decision, he is a very talented fighter and it is not easy to defeat him.
 
Before joining MMA in 2012, the Nigerian fought boxing and kickboxing. On his mixed martial arts debut, he beat James Griffiths by technical knockout.
 
Adesanya went through several events like Shuriken MMA, Wu Lin Feng and Hex Fighting Series, until his UFC debut in 2018. On that occasion, he beat Rob Wilkinson by technical knockout.
 
Still in 2018, he fought 3 more times, winning all of them, against Marvin Vettori, Brad Tavares and Derek Brunson, respectively. In 2019, at UFC 234 he beat none other than Anderson Silva, the legendary Brazilian of the octagons. Subsequently, he passed by Robert Whittaker and won the unification of the category belt.
 
In addition, Israel Adesanya successfully defended the belt on two occasions in 2020, defeating Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa. Against the Brazilian, he even won the Performance of the Night award.
 
So now the Nigerian is looking for a new challenge in his career, moving up the category and seeking to further improve his great cartel.
