Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is set to challenge reigning light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz at the UFC 259 PPV event today.

The Last Stylebender as Adesanya is nicknamed, defeated all the top contenders in the middleweight division during his three-year run in the division.

He has long-standing disagreement with former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who is expected to make his heavyweight debut later this year.

However, the Nigerian-born Kiwi has not ruled out a move to heavyweight either.

Unless the circumstances are right and there is a fresh streaking contender at middleweight, the likelihood of Israel Adesanya going back down is less.

Israel Adesanya holds an undefeated professional MMA record of 20 wins and is regarded by many as one of the biggest stars in all of combat sports.
