Blachowicz wrote, “Hold up… So a guy who bolted from the UFC after I’ve slept him and almost made him retire, got a couple of wins in the 2nd league and claims he is the best? Maybe I’ve punched him to hard… No class in win or defeat Corey. There’re levels to this.”

Following this tweet, the former UFC fighter was quick to respond. He talked about the outcome of their first fight and also called Blachowicz’s knockout punch in their rematch a ‘lucky shot’.

Anderson wrote, “Let’s not forget. What happened to you the 1st time I left you looking like elephant man. And you posted “I need to go home and rethink my career”. Yea, I got knocked out in our 2nd fight (lucky punch?) but I made you my broad for 15 min straight. Nothing lucky about that.”
