UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz has hit back at Bellator fighter Corey Anderson for claiming that he is the best light heavyweight fighter on the planet — this and much more on Monday's social media roundup.
Jan Blachowicz and Corey Anderson engage in a war of words over who is the best light heavyweight in the world
This past weekend, former UFC light heavyweight fighter Corey Anderson made quick work of Ryan Baden when he knocked him out in the first round.
After the bout, Anderson went on to say how he believes that Bellator have the best light heavyweight division and that he is the best in the light heavyweight weight class in the world.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz, who knocked out Anderson last year has responded to Anderson's claims.
Check out what Blachowicz had to say below.
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?— Jan Blachowicz (@JanBlachowicz) October 18, 2021
Maybe I've punched him to hard... No class in win or defeat Corey. There's levels to this. --
Blachowicz made a fair point saying that he knocked him out and left the UFC, but Anderson also made a point with his response.
Anderson and Blachowicz have had two fights against each other with each fighter having one win.
Anderson brought this up in his response.
------ Let's not forget. What happened to you the 1st time I left you looking like elephant man. And you posted "I need to go home and rethink my career".— Corey 'Overtime' Anderson (@CoreyA_MMA) October 18, 2021
Yea I got knocked out in our 2nd fight (lucky punch?) but I made you my broad for 15 min straight nothing lucky about that. https://t.co/q5kSRUVt48
Anderson will face Vadim Nemkov next for the Bellator light heavyweight title and Blachowicz will face Glover Teixeira in a few weeks where he will make the second defence of his UFC light heavyweight title.
