Jan Blachowicz, who at UFC 253 became the new face of the Light Heavyweight division, has been quite busy calling out former champions of the same weight division, every since the event.
In his post-match comments he laid out a challenge in front of Jon Jones, the former champion at the behest of which, Jan Blachowicz Vs. Dominick Reyes became the title fight. And then a couple of days later, he called out the future hall of famer Daniel Cormier.
Jones relinquished the title to move to the Heavyweight division, however, after watching Blachowicz mentioning his name live, he took to Twitter to tease the polish, and wrote, “Would you guys be annoyed if I went back and grabbed my belt real quick?”, but after a few minutes Bones quashed the speculation of any skirmish, by posting, “The more I think about it, I’m glad the belt went to such a humble guy. I’m sincerely happy for Jan.”

Daniel Cormier, who is now out retired, gave a subtle answer to the new champion. “No chance champ, congrats on a big win. You’re the man! You’re the king now, you shouldn’t worry bout what an old retired man is saying. Great job getting that title.”
