The unbeaten pound-for-pound great is set to make his light heavyweight debut on Sunday morning when he will face-off against champion Jan Blachowicz.

Looking to become only the fifth fighter in the UFC’s history to hold two belts simultaneously, a win at UFC 259 would see the Nigerian-born striker join elite company.

After already holding the middleweight title in a division that has an upper weight limit of 185lb, Adesanya will soon compete in a class that’s 20lb heavier.

Despite the already mammoth task of beating the notoriously heavy-hitting Blachowicz, shockingly, speaking in a recent interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Adesanya has admitted he could weigh-in closer to the middleweight limit.
