Jan Blachowicz has been calling his shot, and he’s coming off three impressive victories. Going 9-5 with the promotion, the contender has turned into a UFC staple at light heavyweight.

Champion Jon Jones’ infamous rivalry with Daniel Cormier is a well-documented affair for the 205-pound division. Until 2019, the former Olympian had only one loss on his record, courtesy of Jon Jones.

Many believe the story of Cormier’s career is tied to his fights with Jon Jones. Cormier seemingly couldn’t escape this narrative until moving up to heavyweight.

Jan Blachowicz has grown tired of sitting around. He went on to fire shots at Daniel Cormier in order to reinforce his place in the division.

Jan Blachowicz: War of words

Daniel Cormier has no immediate urgency to return to his former division. At the twilight of his career, Cormier has made it clear that his last fight is to rematch Stipe Miocic. The rubber match between Miocic and Cormier is highly anticipated bout expected to take place sometime this year.

It is clear that Blachowicz is gunning for a fight with Jones at the earliest. The heavyweight fighter and commentator just happened to be collateral. A possible fight between Blachowicz and Cormier is certainly not on the cards.

Jan Blachowicz is on his way to fight for the title, but when his opportunity will come remains to be seen. Fight Island could prove to be the answer for Jan and help provide clarity.

The most uncertain factor is who would he face in a title fight. If Jon Jones vacates the belt, Blachowicz will square off against Dominic Reyes for the UFC gold.
