Jan Blachowicz had slowly and steadily been climbing up the UFC light heavyweight rankings ladder. However, before he could secure himself in the prime position to receive a title shot, he was defeated in brutal fashion via a knockout by Thiago Santos at UFC Fight Night 145. Though, Blachowicz is now seemingly eager to get back to winning ways and has now called out Anthony Smith. The Polish fighter recently took to Twitter and not only called out Smith but also sort of taunted him about waiting for a rematch with Jon Jones.
Smith lost to Jones in the main event of UFC 235 via unanimous decision. However, he had secured three big wins before that over fighters like Volkan Oezdemir, Rashad Evans and Mauricio Rua.
Here’s what Blachowicz tweeted:
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
