UFC FN 64: Jan Blachowicz Promises Jimi Manuwa Will Feel “Polish Power”
By FCF Staff
Jan Blachowicz will face Jimi Manuwa in the co-headliner of UFC Fight Night 64 tomorrow, and the light-heavyweight has outlined why the latter will never forget their encounter.
Blachowicz (18-3) has long been regarded as one of Poland’s top fighters, which is where Saturday’s event will take place. Recently the 32 year-old spoke to UFC.com about the Krakow bound card, and his bout with Manuwa, and here is some of what he had to say:
“I felt really excited,” Blachowicz said, before referring to his stoppage win over Ilir Latifi last October . “First I am in UFC and I had such a great debut against Ilir Latifi and now I can be part of the biggest MMA organization in the world in my home country. It’s a real honor for me and I’ll do everything to give a great performance. That’s my job, that’s my life, I’m in UFC and UFC came to Poland. What more do I want?”
“He’s a very good fighter with very good stand-up, but I have a plan to defeat him,” he said about Manuwa. “He’ll feel and remember the legendary Polish power.”
Manuwa (14-1), meanwhile, will be fighting for the first time since last March, when he was stopped by Alexander Gustafsson.
