Jon Jones was happy with Jan Blachowicz’ performance in beating Corey Anderson at UFC on ESPN+ 25, and reacted to Blachowicz calling him out after the fight. Jones spoke on ESPN+’s post-show (per MMA Weekly) and said he’s up for the potential fight. You can check out some highlights below:

On Blachowicz’ performance: “He looked great. He looked fantastic, crisp boxing, great takedown defense. He just looked really good. I was happy to see Corey Anderson eat his words. He’s been talking so much trash, and then to go out there and perform the way he did.”

On a possible fight with Blachowicz: “Jan has great knockout power. He’s very technical. He’s fundamentals are very sharp, and yeah, I think he’s going to make a great opponent. I can totally see the UFC matching us up with each other. What better way to make a claim for the title than to get a knockout like that, so I’ve got a feeling the UFC is going to be giving me a call real soon.”

On when he wants his next fight: “I’m excited. Whoever I fight, I’m excited. I’m going to wait and see what the UFC comes up with but I’m ready to go. I’m completely healed from my last fight. No black eyes and everything. My face, body, mind, heart are all ready to go, so let’s do this.”
