Jan Blachowicz vs. Aleksandar Rakic

Shows what a badass jan is to still win that 1st round after getting cut like that on his eyelid which was clearly bothering him. Those ufc gloves really are crap, they have sharp edges to them.

His corner did a real good job in between rounds with that cut.

Yeah definitely. Jan is a true fighter. To be honest the way that fight was going, I think Jan was going to start dominating Rakic and eventually would have stopped him in the 4th or 5th.

THose calf kicks clearly damaged rakic.

I was wondering if Jan had gotten old and slow since his loss to Glover, but he looked much better last night. He looked faster and more explosive than before. He looked good against a very big and dangerous fighter.

Too bad it ended inconclusively. Still, I guess Jan hasn’t gotten old just yet. He is very hard not to like.

Was a great fight up until the freak injury. Shocked me that Rakic seemed like the bigger puncher. Jans left to the body with the right follow up connected every time and it seemed he was taking control when it ended. Jan’s standup just looked a little more polished than Rakic’s.

THink rakic had more speed and jan more power. THose calf kicks fucked up rakics game and may have contributed to the injury.
