UFC on ESPN+ 22 featured an absolute clash of titans as Polish powerhouse and #6 ranked light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz welcomed BJJ ace and legend Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza to light heavyweight.

Blachowicz played a similar role in his last fight as he welcomed former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold to light heavyweight. Blachowicz brutally knocked Rockhold out to the extent that Rockhold had a broken jaw. The MMA community expected a similar performance from Blachowicz this time around. On the other hand, fans expected a lot from a rejuvenated Jacare as well. That was not to be as both ended up going 25 minutes for a fairly uneventful fight wherein Blachowicz edged Jacare via a split decision.

UFC middleweight Derek Brunson took to social media to take a jab at Blachowicz. Brunson posted a picture of his daughter sleeping, claiming Blachowicz’s fight put her to sleep. (via Twitter):

Blachowicz however took it sportingly further replying,”Everything for kids man”. Brunson further gave credit to Blachowicz for getting the job done. (via Twitter):

The fight turned out the way it did for a plethora of reasons. Blachowicz reportedly injured his foot which tailored his output and was also cautious of Jacare taking him down. Jacare on the other hand, was finding it difficult to close the distance and get a takedown on much bigger Blachowicz.

The light heavyweight division now has three names namely Blachowicz, Reyes and Anderson, worthy of a title shot.
