UFC middleweight king, Israel Adesanya has become a sensation in the world of MMA ever since his UFC debut. His flashy fighting style, dominant finishes, unbeaten resume, and persona on the mic have catapulted him to the top of the mountain.
However, every now and then Adesanya makes statements that catch the fans’ attention. Sometimes the fans find it hilarious and sometimes fans put them under scrutiny. But this time, Adesanya has made an honest assessment of the trend “No Nut November”.
Israel Adesanya shuts down the GOAT debate
Israel Adesanya has never been a fan of “No Nut November”. He even made fun of this trend last year when he was on the JRE podcast. And things have not changed for the middleweight champion as he is not bothered about either. Israel Adesanya posted a hilarious tweet on this matter saying:
This year I lost 6 times on the first day of #nonutnovember 💦💦💦 https://t.co/dSmtVKsryR

Can Israel Adesanya be a two-division champion?
Israel Adesanya has beaten most of the title contenders at the middleweight division and his eyes are on the UFC light heavyweight title at the moment. But, the path to becoming a two division champion will not be easy for Adesanya. He will have to overcome Jan Blachowicz who is getting better each time he gets into the octagon.
Jan Blachowicz has some serious knockout power and his striking looked crisp in his fight against Dominick Reyes. He was doing some serious damage with body kicks. Besides that, he is a legit black belt in the light heavyweight division. However, Israel Adesanya will not be a big underdog if this fight ends up happening.
Adesanya will have the edge in striking against Blachowicz. He certainly has the takedown defense to keep the fight on the feet. But, how does he perform against a light heavyweight will be something that will intrigue the fans.
We have often seen middleweights moving to light heavyweight and getting knocked out viciously. There will be a big power difference between Adesanya and Blachowicz. But, Adesanya has fought at heavyweight in his kickboxing career. So his approach for this fight might stay the same. Either way, this should be a fun fight for the fans, which might lead to a dream matchup between Adesanya and Jon Jones.
