The Main Event of UFC On ESPN+3 in Prague is a light heavyweight fight between #4 contender Jan Blachowicz vs #6 Thiago Santos. The question is, does the light heavyweight main event winner fight Jon “Bones” Jones next for the championship?
Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos infuses new blood into the light heavyweight divison. Jon Jones has been one of the most dominant champions in UFC history and the challenge is when your champion is so dominant it gets hard to create new contenders for him to fight. Jon Jones fights the #3 contender Anthony Smith next at UFC 235. If he gets by the tough Anthony Smith what’s next? Jan Blachowicz is on a four fight win streak and a win over Knockout artist Thiago Santos might capitulate him to Jon Jones’s door step. With that being said if Thiago Santos gets by Jan could that setup a potential matchup against the champ. Santos has won 7 out of his last 8 fights with one of those wins being against Anthony Smith. Santos has great momentum behind him with some top notch knockouts and if he gets one more in the Main Event, can Santos be next to earn a title shot? The main event on UFC Prague has major light heavyweight championship implications and Jon Jones would be bananas if he’s not watching!
