Israel Adesanya insists he will not bulk up in a similar fashion to Jon Jones as he gets set to move up in weight ahead of his fight against Jan Blachowicz.
'The Last Stylebender' confirmed this week that he is making the step up to light-heavyweight, with Adesanya's coach Eugene Bareman recently revealed they were targeting the Nigerian-born New Zealander becoming a two-weight champion.
Blachowicz claimed the light-heavyweight belt vacated by Jones in September but as Jones himself prepares to step up to heavyweight by posting a series of heavyweight videos, Adesanya vowed that he would not be putting on weight quite so blatantly.
