Jan Blachowicz is crystal-clear about his end goal, and that’s to fight for what was once his priciest possession – the UFC light heavyweight belt. Fans are eagerly waiting to see Alex Pereira’s debut in the light heavyweight division, and the winner of this match will most likely fight for the next title match.
Blachowicz is focused on his upcoming match, yet he knows what’s next for him; he is really looking forward to fighting Jiri Prochazka after Jamahal Hill vacated the belt due to an injury. Blachowicz seems to be confident in his abilities and expects to win convincingly against Alex Pereira.
A must-win match for both fighters, and it will be very interesting to see who prevails in this competitive light heavyweight battle.
Jan Blachowicz on fighting Jiri Prochazka
In an interview with MMA Fighting, Jan Blachowicz spoke about the potential match with Jiri Prochazka and explained why it should happen somewhere in Europe.
“The UFC has to do this fight somewhere in Europe,” Blachowicz said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “In Poland, it’s going to be the biggest fight in Europe’s history. “It will be a great show, a very huge show.
I believe if they do it in Warsaw in the national stadium, I believe it will be full. I believe in that, people will come and support me — and not only me, but Jiri because the Czech Republic is very close. Blachowicz further said: We’re going to have a very big, a very nice event with 60,000 people.
It will be an amazing show, but first I need to win against Pereira”. Blachowicz further said: “I know what is on the line, but right now I’m only focused on Pereira. First of all, I have to do my job and knock him out or submit him.
I wanted Alex Pereira, I don’t need extra motivation for him. I know when I beat him, my next fight is for the title. That’s why".
