UFC light heavyweight Jan Blachowicz (25-8) is about to have a rematch with Corey Anderson (13-4) this Saturday. He shared some thought on the upcoming fight.

“I lost a couple of times but I just know that I’m better than Corey. I’ll show him that I’m better than him and I will do this. I’m really excited, really happy. I’ve never lost a rematch and this is going to be the same.

“My wrestling is much better than when we fought the first time. He’s going to fight a completely different fighter. The pressure is going to be on his side. I cannot wait. I believe and I feel inside me that I got Corey Anderson because I never lose a rematch.”

Blachowicz intends to secure an impressive fight that will bring him a title shot. Then he plans to become the first man to beat Jon Jones.

“I would like to be the first guy to beat Jon Jones. After the Corey fight, I think I’m going to be the next contender for the title. I will prove it with Corey Anderson that my next fight will be a title shot. First of all, I focus only on Corey. After that, I think I will have done enough to get the title shot.”

Blachowicz vs. Anderson is going to be the main event of the UFC Fight Night 167 that’s taking place this Saturday in Rio-Rancho.
