Jan Blachowicz Preferred To Israel Adesanya By Bettors At UFC 259

The main event of Saturday’s UFC 259 sees Jan Blachowicz defend his light heavyweight title against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. There are many questions that will be answered on Saturday night including: can Adesanya become champ-champ? Or can Blachowicz continue to be the greatest underdog in UFC history?

If Adesanya does indeed become a champ-champ and put himself into the conversation of being one of the all-time greats, he’ll do it on Saturday moving up in weight. The 31-year-old is an incredible 20-0-0 in his MMA career and would become the biggest star in the game (outside of Conor McGregor) if he were to come out on top at UFC 259.

OddsChecker’s lead UFC analyst had a 34.92% ROI in the month of February, so don’t miss his picks for the main event here.

Awaiting him is Jan Blachowicz, a man that has prided himself on never giving up and overcoming the odds. He won his last fight as a big underdog and many are expecting the same to happen this weekend. No matter what, he’ll be a huge danger to Adesanya.

Heading in to the fight, the sportsbooks make Israel Adesanya the overwhelming favorite to come out on top. The best odds you can find on Adesanya are -225 whereas Blachowicz can be backed at +200 (2/1). However, as mentioned above, there’s a lot of support for the underdog Blachowicz in the betting markets. Over the past 7 days, Blachowicz has accounted for 59.64% of total bets on the main event with OddsChecker, whereas the betting favorite has not been as popular with bettors accounting for 40.36% of wagers.
