More history awaits New Zealand's reigning sportsman of the year in Las Vegas this weekend.

Already the middleweight world champion, mixed martial arts star Israel Adesanya will attempt to claim a second UFC belt.

The Nigerian-born Kiwi will move up a weight division to challenge for the light heavyweight title.

As Clay Wilson explains, victory on Sunday would put Adesanya in very exclusive company.
