Watch UFC star Jan Blachowicz take ice bath in sub-zero temperatures in lake while snowing in brutal recovery technique

JAN BLACHOWICZ shared his post-training recovery regime by filming himself taking an ice bath in a freezing cold lake… in the snow.

The Polish star, 38, is gearing up for his eagerly-anticipated clash with Israel Adesanya in the main event at UFC 259 this weekend.

And, as part of his post-training recovery, Blachowicz took a dip in a desperately cold frozen lake.

But not only did the light-heavyweight champion fail to wince after dropping into the sub-zero water, he even kicked back, relaxed and 'enjoyed' it.

Leaning back and stretching his arms, Blachowicz nonchalantly said: "And now you have to just enjoy the feeling of ice… ice bathing.

"It's not California but it's good."

Blachowicz is in confident mood ahead of his light-heavyweight clash with middleweight champion Adesanya too.

Last week, the Polish star vowed to brutally KO his 31-year-old opponent.

Blachowicz roared: “I see KO in the second round.

"Left high kick on his head. This is what I see, yes."


Blachowicz claimed the 205lb title last September in the co-main event of UFC 253, where he registered a second-round KO victory over Dominick Reyes.

The win capped off a remarkable turnaround for the former KSW champion, who has won eight of his last nine since suffering consecutive defeats to Alexander Gustafsson and Patrick Cummins.

And the Prince of Cieszyn attributes his success to training outside in the elements.

He added: “I love mountains. Mountains give me a lot of energy you know?

"This is something that I love to do in my training camp. It’s the best way I can do my cardio because the mountains are really tough.

"First of all, they take your power, but when you come back to your city or town, they give it back to you twice more.

"That’s why I love the mountains."

…And the frozen lakes, apparently.
