Laura Sanko on Light Heavyweight title bout
Laura Sanko appreciated both the fighters and believed that the right guy won the fight. The 38-year-old talked about the second round, where Jan Blachowicz had the upper hand over Israel Adesanya. Coming to those grappling exchanges, Sanko believes that the weight difference played a major role.
Even though the Nigerian is a purple belt, the Polish mixed martial artist is a black belt. ‘Fancy’ called Jan strong and a big dude. Comparing both the fighters, ‘Izzy’ is very tall, but Jan is a broad, thick, and strapping man.
“I wasn’t necessarily on the edge of my seat every single second. It was like watching a really really violent chess match and there’s something pretty cool about that,” said Laura Sanko.
Adesanya took his to defeat in a classy way
Sanko liked how things ended. Jan Blachowicz got the biggest win of his career, and Adesanya took the defeat like an absolute legend. She compared it with the Notorious, Conor McGregor, Adesanya took his loss like how McGregor handles his losses, go out and talk about it.
“Doesn’t it just feel good when the right guy wins and the guy who doesn’t win still feels good about how he did and is still so classy and you know you’re still going to want to watch him fight next time he fights.”
Laura is excited and can not wait to watch the Nigerian dominate the Middleweight division. Also, she hopes the fighter can take another stab at the Light heavyweight title, with the right opponent and at the right time.
