Jan Blachowicz needed only three minutes and eight seconds to get revenge on Corey Anderson during UFC Fight Night 167 in New Mexico – before calling Jon Jones.
It was back at UFC 191 in September 2015 when Anderson defeated Blachowicz by unanimous vote, but the tables were definitely turned around here.
The Pole slapped Anderson with a right hand against the chin and sent the American to the floor. Blachowicz bounced and landed another blow to the head before the referee stopped the game.

Before even being declared the winner of the light heavyweight competition, Blachowicz marched to Jones and called the pound-for-pound top ranked hunter.
“You’re next, tell me when, tell me the place and time,” he told Jones.
This brutal victory underlined the hot shape of Blackowicz when he won three consecutive wins and seven of his last eight to improve his career record to 26-8-0.
It also paralyzed the pre-fight hope of Anderson to aim the shot at Jones, with that possibility now a year away at best.
And Jones was pleased to see that Anderson was defeated after months of talking about garbage while accepting Blachowicz’s challenge.
