Nigerian mixed martial artist, Israel Adesanya has spoken after his first loss.
All three judges gave the contest to Blachowicz with a scorecard of 49–46, 49–45, 49–45 at the end of the meeting. However, while reacting to the setback, the 31-year-old insisted that the fight didn’t go as planned, adding that he was unable to sleep before the fight.
He told UFC on BT Sport by the ringside: “No, not exactly because I thought I was going to win and you know, I couldn’t sleep last night and instead of doing wines I was doing lines just to stay up.
“They got me one of these (bottle of wine) and I probably should have had it maybe I would have slept better.
