Soon after Jan Blachowicz shocked the world to hand Dominick Reyes his second straight loss inside the octagon, Jon Jones sent out several tweets. The former light heavyweight Champion vacated his title belt early this year after announcing his move to heavyweight division for a potential showdown against Stipe Miocic for the Heavyweight Championship. Additionally, Jon Jones had earlier teased a super-fight against Francis Ngannou and a potential showdown against Brock Lesnar after the former heavyweight Champion became a free agent.

Jon Jones took to twitter and sent fight fans into a frenzy by teasing to drop down to light heavyweight division to reclaim his gold. “Would you guys be annoyed if I went back and grabbed my belt real quick” Jones said. Jan was quick to reply, “go be boring somewhere else.” Earlier, soon after his win over Reyes, Jan called out Jon Jones for a fight.

Jan Blachowicz continued his impressive performances inside the octagon as he picked up a brutal TKO win over Dominick Reyes. The former title contender was looked at as the undisputed king of the light heavyweight division after Jones’ departure. Additionally, many fight fans believe that Dominick Reyes did enough to hand Jon Jones his first loss inside the octagon. However, as the saying goes, “there’s levels to this game,” and while taking nothing away from Dominick Reyes, Jan Blachowicz looked more sharper and sealed the deal in just the second round to grab the UFC light heavyweight Championship. At 37 years of age, it is indeed a milestone for UFC veteran Jan Blachowicz who was coming off a spectacular KO win over Corey Anderson. In the process, Jan also became the first fighter beside Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier to hold the light heavyweight Championship in almost a decade.

Dominick Reyes was the favourite going into the fight with a spectacular performance against Jon Jones early this year, and multiple stoppage victories to his name. However, the Polish Power proved to be too much for Dominick Reyes who failed to recover from lethal kicks to the body and lost control of his legs after a barrage of brutal punches.
