Looking for early odds for Adesanya? We always have you covered.

Adesanya is moving up to 205-pounds to challenge the dangerously underrated Jan Blachowicz for the UFC light heavyweight title in early 2021. As it stands, he is favored to capture a second UFC title against Poland’s Blachowicz. That could open the door to a potential fight between the division’s greatest ever fighter, Jon Jones.

Odds for Jones vs. Adesanya make for interesting reading. As expected, “Bones” is a big favorite to beat Izzy, but not everyone agrees that the former light heavyweight champion has the tools to deny New Zealand’s greatest mixed martial artist.

Right now, there’s nothing available. But we will have the best props and specials available for Adesanya when they hit the market.

Israel Adesanya vs. Jan Blachowicz

Jan Blachowicz makes the first defense of his UFC light heavyweight title against Israel Adesanya.

What a fight this should be. Two impressive competitors going at it in what is highly unlikely to be a boring fight. Adesanya is aiming to join the elite club of two-weight world champions, while Blachowicz is tasked with securing a legacy at 205.

While both men are quite different in terms of skillset, they do share kickboxing striking bases. But where Adesanya’s is more technical and laser-precise, Blachowicz’s is powerful and devastating. Who eventually comes out on top will come down to a wide range of factors.

Adesanya is coming off an exceptional knockout win over the previously unbeaten Paulo Costa, while Blachowicz also earned a stoppage win over Dominick Reyes to win the belt. These two are confident, hungry, and ready to put on a fight for the ages.

Now, that’s not to say that you can’t get bonuses on Adesanya fights. You can. And we believe you should! But choosing a site that is going to pay out when you win, protect your sensitive information, and ensure that you are safe when betting is always the one to go for.

Safety is key. But it is also important to  find the best odds for Adesanya, as well as the best markets and range of bets for the striking superstar. A wide range of payment methods is also good, as are the top UFC betting sites that provide fast payouts for winnings.

A Short Adesanya Biography

Israel Adesanya was born in Lagos, Nigeria in July 1989. The son of an accountant and a nurse, Adesanya moved from West Africa to New Zealand as a youngster where he made his way into mixed martial arts following interests in dance, kickboxing, and boxing.

The eldest of five children, Adesanya was educated at Chrisland School in Opebi, Nigeria where he first took up Taekwondo. Although his family moved to Ghana from their homeland, they eventually made their way to the “Land of the Long White Cloud” and started a new life in Rotorua, New Zealand.

According to Adesanya, he was tormented by bullies in school. This led to him taking up kickboxing at 18, where he would excel. At 21, he moved to the country’s capital city, Auckland, where he hooked up with Eugene Bareman at City Kickboxing.

Following years of competing in kickboxing, boxing, and MMA, Adesanya signed for the UFC in 2017. It took him just seven fights to win the middleweight championship and cement himself as one of the best in the sport.
