Israel Adesanya

"I'm not getting touched this fight, that’s my plan, not getting touched like I did in the Costa fight.

"I didn't get touched in the Costa but like I did in the Costa fight because I didn't let him touch me in the face at all. Make sure I don’t get hit and watch out for the body kick."

Jan Blachowicz

"For sure, he’s going to feel something different than he’s felt before. Because at 205, everything is different.

"Power is different. Speed is different. Even if you train with light heavyweight guys and heavyweight guys, this is only sparring. The fight got its own rules and he’s going to feel it.

"This is good for me. 205 is my category. I do this all my life. I feel everything inside octagon over there. It’s going to be better for me.

"I've got the legendary Polish power and when he feels it, he feels it for real; you will see.

"After first kick or the first punch, he’s going to know what I’m talking about when I’m talking about the legendary Polish power."
