Jan Blachowicz knocked out Corey Anderson, avenging a 2015 loss in the main event of UFC Fight Night 167. And for the light heavyweight contender, it came in front of the perfect audience.
With the event going down in New Mexico, reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was present. Jones, coming off a close decision win of his own, acknowledged Blachowicz from Octagon-side.
Blachowicz called for a title shot with "Bones" on the heels of his third consecutive victory. He has also topped former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza and ex-UFC champ Luke Rockhold since an early 2019 loss to Thiago Santos.
Diego Sanchez claimed a win via disqualification over Michel Pereira in the co-main event after Pereira landed with an illegal knee. It marked the second bout of the night to end via DQ.
