UFC Fight Night Picks and Predictions: Anderson vs. Blachowicz

UFC on ESPN+ Preview from Las Vegas

The calm after last week’s storm. This weekend’s UFC Fight Night card doesn’t have the star-power as last week’s Jon Jones card, but the UFC will be perfectly fine with that as long as the judging and officials don’t become part of the storyline (again). UFC Fight Night: Anderson vs. Blachowicz will take place on Saturday, February 15 from the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

Corey Anderson is regarded as a top light heavyweight contender, and a win over Jan Blachowicz may put him in line for a shot at Jon Jones. But we haven’t seen much of Anderson over the past year. He only fought once in 2019, and it was a first-round knockout victory over Johnny Walker. In comparison, Blachowicz fought three times in 2019 for a total of 42 minutes and 18 seconds in the octagon. Anderson and Blachowicz fought in September 2015 with Anderson winning via unanimous decision. From WagerTalk’s MMA aficionado Gianni the Greek: When a rematch in the UFC takes place, the fighter that won the first bout wins the second bout 62-percent of the time.
