UFC Fight Night Main Event Results
By Rich Jennings
#5 Corey Anderson (14-4) v #6 Jan Blachowicz (25-8)
The light heavyweight main event tonight was between 2 fighters that were looking to earn the next shot at the Champ, Jon Jones. It was a rematch between Corey Anderson and Jan Blachowicz , 2 fighters that came in to this fight on winning streaks.
After last weeks controversial decision that many are calling for an immediate rematch between Jones and Dominic Reyes, this fight was going to have to be a statement fight. It had to be a fantastic finish that might sway the UFCs decision on who to book next. I’d say a Knockout in the 1st Round was the way to do it!
Jan Blachowicz knocked out Corey Anderson at 3:08 in the 1st Round and immediately pointed at and called out Jon Jones, who was in attendance for this fight. Jones seemed to enthusiastically welcome it. He now has 2 solid opponents lined up.
Who do you think Jon Jones should fight next; Dominic Reyes or Jan Blachowicz?
Next week on ESPN + is Philly’s own Paul Felder v. Dan Hooker. Should be a great lightweight fight!
