    I'm having a tough time with this fight.


    Blachowicz has more experience and submission skills. But Reyes has a good takedown defense to nullify
    those submissions. Standup wise who is better? Reyes has a two inch height advantage, reach identical.
    Reyes lands more significant strikes a minute and has a higher ko ratio. Thoughts?

    Im taking Reyes KO, I think he's going to land a big punch round 3. His takedown defense will keep them up long enough to land some big hits.

    I'm really curious on those who choose 'Blachowicz Ko' what they see that maybe I dont.

    Well, i'm not picking Jan by KO but what do you expect as an answer? It's Light Heavyweight, Jan is a big punching guy with fast and nice hands, sharp boxing and Reyes defense isn't exactly great, especially in close range. Jan also has the possible chance to take Reyes down as i do think he has the advantage on the ground. Not saying it'll happen but there is a possible path for Jan to win by KO.

    I'm going with Reyes but Jan is a live dog here. He's still one of the most underrated LHWs. Nobody is giving him any respect, despite beating several really good fighters like Anderson, Krylov, Clark, Manuwa, Cannonier, Jacare or Rockhold and losing only to Santos after two very close rounds. He's 7-1 in his last 8 fights and improved a lot.

    Casuals flipping out if they read the name Dominick Reyes because he beat Jon Jones and got robbed. Most of these casuals forgetting about the fact that Reyes arguably lost to Volkan Oezdemir before and didn't look as great as he did in the Jones fight. So there is also a chance Reyes is going back to normal performances and just overperformed in R1-3 against JJ. This will be a close fight imo but i'm going with the younger and more dynamic fighter here. If Reyes can stick & move like he did against Jones for three rounds i think he should be fine.

    I think Reyes probably wins a decision. Blachowicz is a top fighter and will make it a good fight though.

    Very impressive performance from Blacowicz. He did not let that opportunity slip away. And **** that ***** Jones he lost to Reyes and stepped away because LHW was getting hot for his liking.

    Reyes had his head up his own ass before the fight thinking he was champ.
    I am no fan of Jones but he beat Reyes, some of you need to put the hatred aside and watch a replay, I watched it a few times hoping Reyes did do it.
    What i thought was a clear 2nd round to Reyes, on the replay he barely landed a thing all the punch noises were hitting wrists and shoulders, yet Drugo Jones kicks to the body were brutal in that round forcing Reyes back.

    He inflicted more punishment on Reyes in less than two rounds than all of his previous opponents combined. That broken nose...

    Top performance from Blachowicz. He's always been a solid all round fighter and now he's the champ. Don't think there is an obvious contender out there for him.
