Jan Blachowicz managed to overturn his previous loss against Corey Anderson in an impressive fashion at UFC Rio Rancho.
The fight on Saturday was a rematch of a fight at UFC 191 which Anderson won via unanimous decision. Weighing in at 205 pounds, it took just over three minutes for Blachowicz to emerge victorious over his old foe. A right-hand followed by a hammer fist from Blachowicz knocked Anderson out at 3:08 mark in the first round.
With the win, Blachowicz could possibly get a shot at Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight championship. Immediately after the fight, Blachowicz made a gesture pointing towards Jones, who was in the arena, as if to say, “be ready.”

Jan Blachowicz just knocked out Corey Anderson in the first round.
And then walked over and pointed at Jones and Jones seemed to love it.
That was it, Jan. Well done.
