The Polish Jan Blachowicz had an impressive performance in the UFC 253, where he knocked out Dominick Reyes and was consecrated. Now, he himself is the new champion of the Semi-Complete Weights, putting on his body the belt that Jon Jones had vacated. The latter went to the Heavyweight, so the title was free. Thus, the new leader of the category challenged him to go back to find what belonged to him.
Most shocking of all was the terrible knockout that the Pole was able to get, after a blow that exploded the nose of his rival, leaving him on the canvas and without a title for him. After a great first round, in the second he went and finished one of the best of today, as he is Dominick Reyes. It was undoubtedly the best finish of the night so far, so he will fight for $ 50,000.
Only one thing is on my mind. Jon Jones, where are you? This is nothing new to me. I am 37 years old and a lot of fights. I’m going to be a dad soon and this makes me very happy. It is nothing new, it does not surprise me. I am very happy about this and now I want to go for more. To all my fans in Poland, thank you very much for helping me achieve this, “said the new UFC Semi-Complete Weightlifting Champion.
What he had said in the previous Blachowicz
It’s going to be an incredible fight. I am happy because I have a title shot. The title is the most important thing. The belt is the most important thing. Dominick Reyes he is a great opponent. He almost beat Jon Jones, it was a very tough fight so I am happy to fight Dominick Reyes for the title. I don’t care about Jon Jones right now. It does not exist for me. Maybe I’ll catch it later, I don’t care. I’m just thinking about Dominick right now, “he said earlier. Jan Blachowicz.
