Jan Blachowicz believes Jon Jones moved to heavyweight because he was afraid of him

UFC: Reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz considers that he is the main reason why Jon Jones decided to move up to heavyweight.

Poland’s Blachowicz became the UFC’s initial 205-pound titleholder since 2011 not termed Jon Jones or Daniel Cormier after beating Dominick Reyes for the empty title at UFC 253 back in September.

The title became vacant because erstwhile champion Jones determined that he was done using all the light heavyweight division and is putting up for a move to the heavyweight ranks.

Blachowicz believes that Jones this move because of his fear.

Speaking to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, Blachowicz reported that he thinks Jones bolted to the heavyweight division to avoid an inevitable matchup between the two.

“Why Jon Jones doesn’t want to fight in 205 [pounds] anymore? Because he’s afraid of me. That’s why he moved to heavyweight. This is the reason,” Blachowicz stated. 

‘Had Jones not vacated the name, it was highly likely the Blachowicz was next in line to battle the former winner.

Since losing to Santos in February of 2019, Blachowicz bounced back by placing with a four-fight winning streak, defeating the likes of former middleweight champ Luke Rockhold, Jacare Souza, and Corey Anderson before rapping Reyes to claim the name.
