Felt! Despite being in the recovery process after being injured, Jan Blachowicz shows that he keeps an eye on what is happening in the world of MMA. After Kamaru Usman remembering an episode in which he felt bigger than the Pole and stated that he could defeat him, the former light heavyweight champion (up to 93kg) did not hesitate to open the door for a possible confrontation.

“If you still feel (the same confidence) about it, let’s do it. Kamaru Usman. I will be ready”, declared Blachowicz on his official account of the X (old Twitter).

After the statement, the Pole was received with praise and criticism for having proposed a duel to the former UFC welterweight champion (up to 77,1kg).

“Easy money for Jan,” declared one account.


“It’s not bold to call out a guy who fights two divisions below you”

“No chance of Usman fighting at 93kg. That would be ridiculous for sure.”


"Wow! Just wow. Jon Jones Was that right, are you so finished that you would challenge a welterweight?”

Despite the challenge, Blachowicz has not received a response from Kamaru so far. At a delicate moment in his career, the Nigerian has accumulated three consecutive defeats, while Jan seeks to return to the path of victories after being surpassed by Alex Poatán competing for the category title.
