Former WWE wrestler and Hollywood’s highest-paid actor, Dwayne Johnson, is excited for the UFC 259 fight between Israel Adesanya and Jan Blachowicz.
Israel Adesanya will fight Jan Blachowicz with significant weight difference as the 31-year-old UFC fighter explains why he refuses to pack on muscle. It’s easy to see why the MMA world is eagerly anticipating the action from inside Las Vegas’ UFC Apex on Saturday night.
Dwayne Johnson, one of the UFC fans, has reacted to the news about the fight on his Twitter account and said that he can’t wait to watch the fight.
In the tweet, the 48-year-old actor called Jan Blachowicz a world shocker. However, The Rock praised Israel Adesanya and he is just a special athlete on that path to GOAT(Greatest of All the Time) status.
As you all know, before the fight, Israel Adesanya enters the fight with a 20-0 record that features 15 knockouts. He’ll join four other UFC stars (Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, Amanda Nunes, and Henry Cejudo) in becoming a concurrent double champion in UFC should he defeat Jan Blachowicz, but he’d be the first to do it unbeaten.
Here’s what Dwayne Johnson said:
“Can’t wait I’ll be watching!! @JanBlachowicz @stylebender
Champ vs Champ Jan is a world shocker. Israel is just a special athlete on that path to goat status. #UFC259 Highly recommend tuning into this one.”
