Simon Head of MMA Junkie provided the following translation of what Blachowicz wrote on Instagram:

“Thank you very much for the invitation from Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Both for me and the entire MMA community, it proves that our discipline is not only popular, but also noticeable by the most important people in Poland. It is an honor to be an ambassador of this amazing sport. I hope that after our conversation, the Prime Minister will be waiting in front of the TV, regardless of the time, to watch my next fight ;)”
