    Jan's combination that ends with that left body kick is my favourite combination to watch. It'll definitely be on against Adesanya, but he'd probably be better off in the clinch. I think Jan could beat Jon Jones, but Adesanya might be just too technically gifted on the feet for him.

  • Kirk Landau

    It's kind of funny how blatant Dan Hardy is with the notion that Blachowicz is pretty much fucked in a straight up striking match with Adesanya, without ever explicitly stating that outright haha. But he's probably correct, I thought the same thing, and Hardy confirms it with his striking expertise, providing compelling and eye-openingly small-detailed yet visually understandable examples of how Adesanya's kickboxing virtuosity actually works so well and so consistently and how Jan has openings and flaws on that higher level of tactical awareness/involvement/mastery.

  • Kirk Landau
    Kirk Landau

    Around 19:00 in the video or so, Hardy points out that Adesanya generates unexpected power by performing a sort of exaggerated whipping motion with his arm that seems almost bizarrely extreme. Adesanya has an exceptionally long reach and one of the most uniquely odd (yet intriguingly effective) physiques and body structures that I've ever seen in all of combat sports history. I'm wondering, does anybody know of any *boxers* that have thrown these sort of hyper-power hooks (it's more than a standard power hook) with this kind of exaggerated whipping motion and full bodily torque exertion to such an almost contortionist degree? Because Adesanya legitimately looked like a high level boxer in throwing it, but I don't actually recall seeing any high level boxer before throw that particular technique or style of exaggerated contortionist punching. Could this be a sort of small, extra innovation to boxing itself on the part of Adesanya? Or is it a peculiarity of his exceptionally unique body structure that he's able to generate so much extra power in such an unconventional way?

    So Dan is fanboying over Izzy ... suprice factor 0. That beeing said I think this match is gonna look like Anderson Silva vs Forest Griffin.

      I’m a fan of both, and have actually been friends with Jan for some time now. My breakdown is impartial, and based on facts. If you hear Izzy favoritism, it’s because you’re filtering my words with your own bias.

    losing that fight to santos was the best thing that ever happened to Jan in his career , it literally beat patience into his head that has to be maintained at all cost . People are sleeping and Jan way too much in this fight is he is literally five dudes he’s a foot taller than if he got caught once by Jan how he got a drop I guess let me get put in a fucking coma people I think and he’s going to run over a young age like becoming embarrassing Jan has better boxing without a doubt and he’ll eat is his leg kicks and move forward. And he sure as shit isn’t gonna bite on some hip feint like a fucking amateur the way costa did . This isn’t going to be a cake walk for Izzy . Go rewatch the Silva fight and see how easily Izzy is being COUNTERED n eating check hooks flush . N I promise Jan has significantly faster hands than Silva.

    Yes if jan doesnt put his pride away; and plan to finish the fight on the mat. It's just a huge technical error. In poker we use term Expected value. We always want to make +Ev plays and give ourselves the best chance to win. If Jan doesn't do this i don't feel he's that intelligent of a fighter. Regardless if he wins by knockout. Striking with Adensanya is still -Ev.

    i agree, for me Blachowicz doesn't have the ability to beat Adessayan in standing fight, if he doesn't use his power to bring him and hold him on the ground for the first three rounds, he will not be able to finish or KO him (it doesn't use the ground enough on his fight)..for me probabely Adessayan on the round 3

    I've yet to really hear anyone comment on the fact that this is taking place at the Apex (smaller cage). Izzy may have some trouble with Jan imposing his will especially in the clinch. He'll need to feint like his life depends on it (IMHO)

    Actually Dan, Israel had two near miss subs against Gastelum in the 5th rd...high elbow guillotine and its not out of the question if Jan blows off Izzy's sub game. Here is the Gracie breakdown.

    "Reach advantage", Umm Dan, Blachowicz is 78 inches, Adesanya is 80 inches, that is only a mere 2 inch difference, or 1 inch per arm. Sorry Dan but mentioning this reach advantage is mentioning a distinction without a real difference. A reach advantage that small is rather moot, they are so close to the same reach. Now with Whittaker and Costa, Adesanya had a 7 and 8 inch reach advantage, which actually is significant and plays into it. Blachowicz has the height and reach to contend with Adesanya at least in the length area, it makes you stupid when you talk about Blachowicz as if he has the proportions of Costa or something. Height and reach isn't going to play into this fight, both are very well matched in that regard. It's going to come down to skill, Adesanya will not be able to simply lean back and counter like he did vs Whittaker, because Blachowicz's punches will land in that range. Dan, you are getting lazy.

  • The_Dunks

    @FullReptile I am 100% confident Jan will win this fight. Adesanya's slow methodical style is perfect for someone like Jan. Adesanya has been knocked out only by someone who was bigger then him. And his coach has even admitted that bigger guys have caused struggles for him. Adesanya has never felt light heavy weight power. And you match him up against an extremely confident polish power madman. I will take you up on a wager if willing. $100 to the winner. If Adesanya wins I will donate $100. If Jan wins I want this comment to be highlighted that I predicted it and I don't want money. Whatcha think? Interested?

  • Thanos

    Jan getting smoked, Izzy against Costa was a different level of striking from the Champ, his accuracy and finding holes from every angle and just sniper like accuracy, this guy is unstoppable, anyone can get caught but Izzy knows that and that makes him even more dangerous, he is hyper aware of the range during the fight. Incredible mix of natural talent, skill and hardwork.

    look at the trouble that gastelum gave adesanya. Jan is like a bigger better version of that and if he did his homework he should watch that fight and amplify what kelvin did. Crazy to think he gave him the hardest fight he's had when hes faced costa, romero and whitaker. Jan could definitely win this but it's izzy's to lose if he doesnt take jan seriously and based on his ego based interviews so far, he's already thinking he's won it easily. its definitely a coin toss of a fight. Also, he was sh1tting himself against romero. The one fight were he was properly cacking his shorts of taking a flying knee or winging punch. Just shows how impressive Kelvins performance was to bust him up so well as a shorter man.

    I do love the breakdowns but would appreciate some different breakdowns when you’re doing them on fighters you’ve previously done a War Room on. For example you made the exact same points over the exact same footage of Izzy vs Brunson I believe before the Izzy vs Costa fight but it could’ve been somewhere else. I just know I’ve seen you break down that knee and the same side kick/punch that opened up the guard of Brunson.

    People who think Jan will just come out guns blazing on Adesanya are those who didn't watch Jan's few last fight. Costa is brute bull that goes forward not Jan he calculates everything there is no coincidence in his strategy. He made everyone think he has no gameplan. Watch him keep distance against Adesanya and just wait to smash his ribs and knockout with the hook.
