Blachowicz on winning with a rare bulldog choke submission: “Really, I don’t remember. Maybe a long time ago but in training. Never in the fight. … He just made a mistake. I used it perfectly, and I finished the fight. When I stepped onto the cage, the pressure was gone. And I just enjoyed the fight.”

His thoughts on his critics: “I feel sorry for them.”

On wanting a fight with Shogun: “This is not my decision, but I would like a fight against ‘Shogun’ (Mauricio Rua).”
