Light Heavyweight War
The fight between Anderson and Blachowicz is a rematch from a matchup at UFC 191 where Anderson came away with a unanimous decision victory. However, that was five years ago. Both fighters have shown they can compete at a high level, but only one can rise above the other and show they deserve a title shot.
Anderson is coming off of an impressive knockout over Johnny Walker back at UFC 244. Riding a four-fight winning streak that dates back to April of 2018 Anderson will be gunning for another exciting knockout to try an earn a potential title shot against Jon Jones.
Blachowicz has won six of his last seven fights over names like Jared Cannonier, Jimi Manuwa and Luke Rockhold. With a total of fifteen finishes in his twenty-five wins this fight shouldn’t need the judges.
