UFC 282: Let us take a look at 5 best wins of Jan Blachowicz
Jan Blachowicz vs Israel Adesanya
Jan Blachowicz defeated Israel Adesanya in the main event of UFC 259 to defend his light heavyweight championship successfully. The Polish superstar defeated Adesanya by unanimous decision (49-46, 49-45, 49-45) thanks to his effective top control and solid grappling during the championship rounds. Because of this, he received a 10-8 score for the fifth round from two of the three UFC judges.
Jan Blachowicz vs Aleksandar Rakic
The former heavyweight champion defeated Aleksandar Rakic by TKO at 1:11 of the third round. Rakic had previously sustained a right knee injury. Rakic retreated after a combination by Blachowicz. The knee seemed to give out when he grounded his right back leg. When Rakic quickly fell to the ground, referee Mark Smith intervened to stop the fight. After submitting against Glover Teixeira at UFC 267 in October, this was his first fight.
Jan Blachowicz vs Corey Anderson
In February 2020, at UFC Fight Night 167, Anderson was brutally dispatched by Blachowicz. Not only was it a nice knockout, but Blachowicz also ended Anderson’s impressive winning streak and atoned for his defeat from 2015. The Polish fighter showcased his striking skills by knocking out Anderson in the first round.
Hold up… So a guy who bolted from the UFC after I’ve slept him and almost made him retire, got a couple of wins in the 2nd league and claims he is the best?
Maybe I’ve punched him to hard… No class in win or defeat Corey. There’s levels to this. 🤦♂️

Jan Blachowicz vs Dominick Reyes
At UFC 253 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Jan Blachowicz, an underrated heavyweight from Poland, defeated Dominick Reyes by TKO in 4 minutes, 36 seconds of the second round. Shortly after Blachowicz threw a barrage of punches, the fight ended. After the contest, Reyes’ nose, which appeared to have been fractured, was dripping blood.
Jan Blachowicz vs Luke Rockhold
Jan’s victory over former Middleweight champion Luke Rockhold is among his most significant. Rockhold was willing to try to submit Blachowicz to the ground in the opening round, even though the Polish fighter is both a fantastic striker and a very underrated grappler. To ensure he would win the opening round, Jan rocked Luke in the final seconds of the first frame.
A visibly bewildered Rockhold returned to his grappling in round two, but Blachowicz could clip him with a good left hook of a break. To end the fight, he dropped two enormous bombs after his opponent was knocked out.
