This is a rematch of UFC191 back in September 2015, when Anderson came out the winner by unanimous decision and managed to get Blachowicz to the canvass with relative ease. This fight is seen as providing a potential shot at the title for the winner.
The 30 year-old American Corey Anderson is currently on a four-fight winning streak, having last fought in November last year when he beat Johnny Walker by a first round KO. (Video below)
Anderson is a good well-rounded fighter. He’s a solid striker, very strong on takedowns (at an average of 4.96 per 15 minutes) and defending takedowns and a very capable wrestler.
The 36 year-old Pole Jan Blachowicz is on a two-fight winning streak, with his last bout ending in a split decision victory over Ronaldo Souza in November 2019.
Blachowicz is seen as a more technical striker, although he possesses power if the opportunity arises to finish an opponent. Perhaps his biggest problem is that he isn’t great at defending takedowns.
