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.

“I was focused on my fight so I don’t check the social media, but I’ll check it now.” Blachowicz said “Glover I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you and I hope so, we going to fight again.”

The first fight, Teixeira became the oldest champion to win the belt at the age of 42, when he defeated Blachowicz. He was able to submit him in the second round by rear naked choking him.
