Jan Blachowicz Compares Himself To Lord Of The Ring Character

Jan Blachowicz is the former UFC light Heavyweight champion.

Blachowicz is all set to face Aleksandar Rakic at UFC Vegas 64 main event. 

The former champion made it clear in the media day ahead of UFC Vegas 64 that he wants his title back at any cost!

Blachowicz compares himself to Gollum from Lord of the Rings.

"It's much like Lord of the Rings. You know Gollum? The ring is his precious. I am like Gollum. That is my precious. I want to get the belt back."

The former champion lost the title to Glover Teixeira at UFC 267 last year in October.

Teixeira is to defend the title against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275 and Blachowicz will have to overcome Aleksandar Rakic before he could fight for the title again.

Jan fired- "My hunger level is much bigger than before because I was a champion. I know how it feels, and I want to feel it again."

The fighter also expressed his wish to face his old opponent Glover again.

Adds "I hope he defends the belt, He will not retire."
