With the exception of the draw, Saturday’s UFC 259 pay-per-view card main event will have one of two things happening. The fighter’s 20 consecutive wins will end, or the fighter will become the UFC champion in two divisions.
In the UFC 259 headlining contest, UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blawowic will face undefeated middleweight title holder Israel Adesanya.
Adesanya is 20-0 professionally. He joined the UFC in 2018. In his sixth fight against the promotion, Adesanya defeated Kelvin Gastelum to win a provisional middleweight crown. A few months later, Adesanya unified the £ 185 title with a knockout victory over Robert Whittaker. Adesanya defended the title twice. His recent victory was TKO’s victory over Paulo Costa in September.
Blawowic started his UFC career in Lafranc. In the first six battles with the promotion, Blawic set a record of 2-4. He corrected the ship in 2017. In his last nine battles, Blawic has become 8-1. The biggest victory of his career took place in September when he defeated Dominick Reyes in TKO and won a vacant light heavyweight title. Blawic was belted for the first time when he confronted Adesanya.
The following shows where the two fighters will appear in the UFC Record Book before the UFC 259.
