Israel Adesanya is one of the best fighters in the world right now and fans are wondering whether or not anyone will be able to take him down. Tonight, Adesanya will be going up against Jan Blachowicz at UFC 259 and in a brand new interview with TMZ, the Polish fighter explained why he has a brand new advantage on Izzy.

Essentially, Blachowicz and his fiancee had a child back in December, and now he feels more motivated than ever before. When athletes have kids, they typically elevate their performance and it seems like Blachowicz is ready to move that trend forward.
