Dominick Reyes will meet Jan Blachowicz at UFC 253 Light Heavyweight Title Bout on Saturday September 26th, 2020 at the Arena: Flash Forum, UFC Fight Island, Abu Dhabi United Arab Emirates.

Dominick Reyes -285

Dominick Reyes holds a 12-1 record winning 58% of his fights by knockout.

Reyes has won five of his last six fights and in his last fight he comes to get a victory against Jon Jones at UFC 247.

Reyes comes from making Jones one of the best fights in recent memory for which a rematch is called for. Reyes is a 6'4 "tall guy who has a blue belt in BJJ, with good footwork to the point that he has had knockout wins in the past.

Reyes has a good takedown defense and also has a good punch. Reyes has completed nine of his 12 wins and is one of the best forwards in this division.

Jan Blachowicz +225

Jan Blachowicz is 26-8 winning 38% of his fights by decision. Blachowicz has 7 victories in total from his last eight fights and in his last fight he comes from beating Corey Anderson by knockout in the first round at UFC Fight Night 167.

He has now won three consecutive fights in total and five of his last seven victories. they have earned you performance bonuses.

Black belt in BJJ, Blachowicz is a forward going fighter and can negotiate on his feet if necessary.

Blachowicz can take a hit, but always moving forward, he also has good defense on his feet despite his aggressive style.

Blachowicz is a solid takedown artist with a solid foundation and that is corroborated by his nine career submission wins.

Blachowicz has a good tank of gas, which kept him efficient through all rounds and helped him win 10 of 15 career decisions.

 

Reyes is the best athlete in this contest and very talented, the reasons for Reyes to take this fight are many, so he is the favorite with good reason.

On the other hand Blachowicz is a tough guy and with a cleaner hitting, he can land accurate shots and having an advantage in the grip, we are facing a close fight.

I think I will opt to earn extra money for my pocket and I go to Blachowics, a fighter who is going to push from the beginning.

PICK: Jan Blachowicz to Win @ +225
