The first fight between Saddik and Adegbuyi was Saddik’s last fight, which was in 2018. Saddik, who was the heavyweight champion at the time, knocked out Adegbuyi in 1:54.
While Saddik hasn’t fought since then, Adegbuyi has stayed relatively busy. Having not lost since, he’s notched wins over Igor Mihaljevich, D’Angelo Marshall, and most recently, Badr Hari. The first two were decisions and the Hari win was an impressive third round knockout at Glory 76 in 2020.
The fight between Saddik and Adegbuyi is likely a title eliminator to take on the winner of Verhoeven and Overeem.
