UFC Rio Rancho: Jan Blachowicz Devastates Corey Anderson, Calls Out Jon Jones
Jan Blachowicz needed a big win tonight at UFC Rio Rancho to put himself right into the thick of the title shot mix, and he did just that.
Jan Blachowicz continues to march towards a shot at the UFC’s light-heavyweight title, as the Polish contender took out Corey Anderson in devastating fashion at UFC Rio Rancho.
Both men came out with a steady stream of punches. Anderson pressed forward and Blachowicz looked to counter. Blachowicz scored with a nice left hook a couple of minutes in and Anderson feinted a level change not long after. Moments later, Blachowicz sent Anderson to the deck with a massive right hand and a follow-up hammer fist, and that was that. Massive win fo Blachowicz.
After the win, Blachowicz yelled out to the 205 king, Jon Jones, who was sitting cage side. “Bones” was clearly amped up by what he saw. It will be interesting to see if that fight happens instead of Jones – Dominick Reyes II.
