UFC 259: What has been said?
Jan Blachowicz: “I see KO in the second round. Left high kick on his head. This is what I see, yes.
“I’m always the underdog and I always win the fight. It’s really nice. I’m happy. I could be the underdog every time.
“Maybe after this fight when I win this fight – I believe I will win this fight – maybe after this fight people will start believing in me, respect me and that’s it.
“But anyways, I don’t care about this.
“A funny story, after I beat [Luke] Rockhold, I was also an underdog there and one guy after the fight came to me and said ‘thank you my friend, because thanks to you I’m a rich man right now’ and I said what happened?
“He said thanks to me he won $50,000. So it’s nice to hear something like that after that.
“Maybe right after this fight, someone will win big money also.”
