Jan Blachowicz And Glover Teixeira Both Want To Run Back A 2nd Fight

Jan Blachowicz

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz got the job done against Aleksandar Rakic, earning himself another title shot, but Glover Teixeira still has some work to do to run back a second fight.

Blachowicz won by an unordinary outcome, as Rakic took a step back and looked like he may have blown his knee out. Rakic got up and could barely put pressure on his knee. The fight to that point was a rather close one, and Rakic was coming off a dominant second round. Blachowicz walked away with a TKO victory and even went on to tell Rakic that he will one day be the light heavyweight champion as well.

Coming into the fight, Teixeira was already rooting for Blachowicz. He wanted to see him win, this way they could have a rematch after he defends his title agains Jiri Prochazka. Prochazka unfortunately for Teixaira, may be the most dangerous fighter in the entire division, so beating him will be no small task.

Before the fight Teixeira tweeted out in support of Blachowicz.

“Let’s go @JanBlachowicz Win tonight…and I’ll win Jun 11…then we run it back”
