UFC fight night 167 featured a rematch between Jan Blachowicz and Corey Anderson. In the first encounter, Corey was able to overcome Blachowicz with ease.
Corey Anderson was confident that he would fight for the title after he gets past Blachowicz. However, this fight became a nightmare for Anderson.
The fight started with Anderson putting the pressure on Blachowicz, which ideally favors the Blachowicz. Anderson tried to use his boxing skills along with his wrestling. He did land a few good punches but he was not able to take Blachowicz down. Blachowicz saw the opening and landed a right hand that knocked Anderson out. Though he followed up with a hammer fist the fight was already over.

What is next for Jan Blachowicz
With a first-round finish over Anderson, Blachowicz now seems a solid contender for the title. However, will he get the next shot at the title?
Dominick Reyes who had a close fight with Jon Jones recently is campaigning for a rematch against Jones and rightfully so. Many fans believe that Reyes won the fight against Jones and he should be rewarded with a rematch against the light heavyweight champion. However, Blachowicz’s impressive performance might have made him the next challenger for the title.
