Jan Blachowicz continues Ninja Warrior Poland (video)
Jan Blachowicz, the current UFC light heavyweight champion, faced Ninja Warrior Poland before defending his belt at UFC 267.
ninja warrior is a popular show that sees athletes go through an insane obstacle course and try to reach the end. It was tough to beat but Blachowicz posted the video of him doing it and unfortunately for the UFC champion he didn’t make it to the end. Instead, after a good start and looking like he could make it to the end, he fell off one of the obstacles ending his run in the show.
Jan Blachowicz is set to defend his light heavyweight title for the second time in the main event of UFC 267 against Glover Teixeira. If he were to raise his hand on October 30 on Fight Island, the Pole knows there are tons of options for him.
“That’s good,” Blachowicz said of the 205-pound weight class to MMAFighting. “Lots of good guys, young guys, everyone wants to beat you. So it’s good. [Magomed] Ankalaev, he will fight in this same event as me. He is therefore also a very good fighter. I’m excited. Like I said before, they motivate me to go to the gym and train really hard. Because they are good so I have to be in good shape all the time. Everyone is different. Different styles, different types of movements, different sizes, so it’s amazing what our division looks like right now.
Blachowicz is currently on a five-game winning streak, coming off a decisive victory over Israel Adesanya to defend his belt for the first time. He won the vacant light heavyweight title last September on Fight Island when he had TKO Dominick Reyes. He is currently on a five-game winning streak and is 9-1 in his last 10 after starting his career at UFC 2-5.
