Jan Blachowicz Crushed Dominick Reyes in One-Sided Title Victory!

Up until now, Jon Jones or Daniel Cormier have been dominating the light-heavyweight division. Now, a new name has beaten the odds to gain this title. At the UFC 253 event, Jan Blachowicz has defeated Dominick Reyes to earn a brilliant victory. On one side, Reyes went in this clash after nearly edging Jone Jones during their last match. Many also argued that he did enough to beat Jones. 

As a result, the former college footballer was a strong favorite against his rival. Still, the Polish powerhouse proved everyone wrong. Blachowicz was acting calm all week and even seemed more composed throughout their clash. This time, the former KSW finally put on the performance of a lifetime when he crushed Reyes by TKO. Judging by the fans’ reaction, this was indeed a magnificent victory for the newly reigned champ. 

At the age of 37, Blachowicz already saw all the highs and lows of this sport. Compared to his opponent, he looked calmer and could use his kicks more effectively during the first round. He started by attacking Reyes’ legs, then blazed forward with his hands to finish with a left kick. By this time, the American’s right side was spotting a nasty shade of purple. Meanwhile, Reyes managed to land one sharp right hand later to remind his rival not to get satisfied. In the second round, Reyes charged forward more aggressively, but it backed fire quickly. The Polish was waiting and hit him back as a counter-fighter, breaking Reyes’s nose and sat him down with the brutal short left. Finally, he sealed the deal with a few more shots when the referee intervened to stop the fight.

Getting his hand on the belt, Blachowicz is also the second champ from Poland, after Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Furthermore, his next opponent should be the winner of the Glover Teixeira v Thiago Santos next. Stay tuned for the updates on this exciting clash soon!
