Jan Blachowicz is looking to bounce back against the man who just challenged for the UFC light heavyweight title.
Blachowicz (23-8 MMA, 6-5 UFC) took to social media Wednesday night to call out Anthony Smith (31-14 MMA, 7-4 UFC) following his title-fight loss to Jon Jones (24-1 MMA, 18-1 UFC) at UFC 235 this past weekend.
Blachowicz is coming off a main-event loss of his own to Thiago “Marreta” Santos (21-6 MMA, 13-5 UFC) at UFC on ESPN+ 3 in February, and he appears to believe the timing is right for a clash with “Lionheart” (via Twitter):
“I hear that @lionheartasmith wants a rematch with Jon Jones. Everyone knows it ain’t gonna happen soon dude. Rooster is set for now. I’m free, you’re free – let’s 👊💥. We both have something to prove. @danawhite”
