Ahead of Adesanya’s first MMA fight in the light-heavyweight division, the MMA superstar was rumored to be setting up a super fight with the former champion Jones if he were able to get through Blachowicz.
Blachowicz claimed his title against Dominick Reyes at UFC 253 when he won in the second round via knockout. The title became vacant after Jones decided to make his highly anticipated move to heavyweight.
The former champion was complementary of Blachowicz and his performance reacting during and after the fight.
Despite his loss, Adesanya was in high spirits and also was complementary of Blachowicz. The middleweight champion went as far as saying that if he had to lose to somebody he was glad it was Blachowicz.
Hours after the main event, the online trolling from Jones hasn’t yet stopped as he continues to take shots at Adesanya and his fans.
Jones looks set to make his Heavyweight debut and return to the octagon in the near future as UFC President Dana White has shared he will take on the winner in the UFC 260 main event title fight between Stipe Miocic and Francis Ngannou.
