Following Jon Jones’ calls for a bout with heavyweight contender, Francis Ngannou, Jan Blachowicz has stepped up his game to secure a fight with the light-heavyweight champ.

Recently Jones relayed that he was interested in fighting Ngannou next, and the latter also called for the bout. That has prompted this response from Blachowicz, who is in the title shot mix at 205 pounds.

First you try to hide in jail, then you want to change a weightclass.
You are really doing everything you can to avoid your destiny but there is no place to hide Jonny.
Here’s Jan

More recently, however, Jones has reported that talks to make the Ngannou fight happen are not going well. Jones hinted that he may take a hiatus from fighting as a result. But since then, the champion tweeted this:

I’ve had some time to think about it and Im a lot less emotional. Just sad that the ufc doesn’t see my value against the scariest HW in the world. Jan I guess you’re next in line #badbusiness #shocked

Blachowicz (26-8) is coming off a knockout win over Corey Anderson and has won three straight.
