Current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Blachowicz has once again slammed Bellator fighter Corey Anderson for calling himself the best Light Heavyweight fighter on the planet following his TKO win over Ryan Bader at Bellator 268 last weekend.
Speaking with Ariel Helwani on his show ‘The MMA Hour’, Jan Blachowicz heavily claimed that Corey Anderson after losing to him left the UFC like a quitter and went to the second league. While talking to Helwani, Blachowicz also mentioned that the American fighter is a ‘quitter’ and ‘coward’.
“I just want to put him [Anderson] to the ground again. The difference between me and him is when I lost the fight, I don’t quit because I’m not a quitter. He lost the fight and he quit. He goes to a different place, like I said a second league. And now, he’s barking. Why don’t he stay in UFC, he can say everything right now. He is just a coward and quitter. Now, he’s safe over there, because I’m not over there,”
Jan Blachowicz and Corey Anderson have clashed against each other twice in the UFC. In their first bout, Corey Anderson emerged out victorious by beating Blachowicz via an unanimous decision at UFC 191. In their rematch, ‘The Polish Power’ had viciously knocked out Corey Anderson in the very first round.

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?— Jan Blachowicz (@JanBlachowicz) October 18, 2021
Maybe I’ve punched him to hard… No class in win or defeat Corey. There’s levels to this. ????♂️
It did not take a long time for the American fighter to respond and remind Jan Blachowicz about the outcome of their first bout. Corey Anderson also stated that he made Blachowicz rethink about his career following their first bout.
