UnderGround Forums Jon Jones: I think Jan Blachowicz is next

UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was cageside as Jan Blachowicz earned a devastating KO win over Corey Anderson, and then watched Blachowicz call him out from inside the Octagon.

In post-fight interviews, Jones said he is game, but also is open to a rematch with Dominick Reyes.

“It’s something that I definitely consider, but in order for a Dominick Reyes rematch to happen it just needs to take a few meetings with the UFC to make that happen,” said Jones as transcribed by Danny Segura and Matt Erickson for MMA Junkie. “But if we don’t rematch, I’m fine with that, too. I think I won the fight, definitely won Rounds 3, 4, 5. And you know, a lot of you are giving [judge Joe Soliz] a lot of slack saying I won 2, 3, 4, 5. I can see how he can give me 2, 3, 4, 5, but 3, 4, 5 I stand by.”

“Jan has been looking great. The way he knocked out Luke Rockhold, Corey Anderson – I mean, both of those guys are known to not be able to take a punch, but he’s pulling the trigger, and he’s landing those big shots. So I think he’s very deserving.

“It was an awesome fight. I thought Jan Blachowicz did an awesome job, his boxing looked great. Corey seemed slow tonight. It seemed like something wasn’t clicking there. He seemed slower and more hesitant on his takedowns. Honestly, I think he was more worried about fighting me than Jan Blachowicz, and he learned a valuable lesson on what happens when you look past opponents.”

“I could totally see the UFC matching [Blachowicz and I] up with each other. What better way to make a claim for the title than to get a knockout like that. I got a feeling the UFC’s gonna be giving me a call real soon.”

Reyes was not impressed.

Yep. He knows Jan would be an easy fight for him. Reyes won that damn fight. They have to run it back. Worst case scenario should be Reyes vs Jan.

Jan would have solidified a title shot if he jumped the cage and got in Jon's face

Yup. They have 3 fights for Jon that are all interesting, which hasn’t happened in a long while. 
 

I hope they keep all 3 guys on ice and let the rest of the division produce a fourth challenger in the next 12-15 months. Don’t match these guys up with each other - that will just knock someone off of the list.

Its a shame Aleksandar Rakic was robbed during the Volkan fight, he won that.  Id like to see Rakic vs Reyes.

I think this is a tailor made fight for Jones.

I don't see Blachowicz stopping Jones' takedowns...

Jones should be fighting Santos or Reyes. He lost both of those imo.

I wouldn't mind winner of Santos vs. Reyes fighting winner Jones vs. Jan either. Fresh fight, and either way Santos and Reyes will probably see Jones again one day, unless a startling decline happens to one of them.

Agreed. Rematches are whatever but when the "goats" last 2 fights he arguably lost both. Imo lost both there needs to be a rematch. Like wtf

Am I reading different quotes than you, or do you guys just come in with the standard , “he’s ducking ‘x’ fighter, ‘embracing the heel,’ scared of ‘x,’ he’s delusional, etc....?

The guy literally gave a fighter props, thought he was next, and said he was also open to a rematch of Reyes. I’m shocked how anyone could get triggered over the quotes above

Not to be cliche'but there are no easy fights at that level. People who think that are the same ones who said Santos and Reyes would be easy fights for Jon too.

What do you expect from a career steroid cheat that only fights guys smaller than himself. You really think Jon wants to challenge himself ? Stipe weighed 230 in his last fight. Same weight Jon walks around at. Jon is looking to take steroids and take on the easiest fights he can.
