Jan Blachowicz clobbered Corey Anderson last weekend in the UFC Rio Rancho main event and the reward for his efforts, assuming the promotion is in line with this outline, is a title shot against reigning light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones.

ESPN “SportsCenter” just released the full fight between Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone, which took place last month inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. For free.
