Given Krylov’s (24-5 MMA, 6-3 UFC) history of never having gone to the judges in a win or a loss, Blachowicz’s (22-7 MMA, 5-4 UFC) hope is almost certainly going to come true – it’s just a matter of what end he comes out on.
Blachowicz, 35, will look to push his winning streak to four when he welcomes Krylov back to the octagon in the co-headliner of UFC Fight Night 136, which takes place at Olympic Stadium in Moscow and streams on UFC Fight Pass. He knows it won’t be an easy task, but as Blachowicz explained at Wednesday’s open workouts, he only has one goal in mind.
“He’s a great, young fighter,” Blachowicz said in a Q&A with UFC commentator Dan Hardy. “Very experienced. But I’m here to stop him.”
