The first minute was quiet, and both of them were waiting for the right moment to attack. The center pole tried to weaken his opponent’s legs with low kicks. But the pressure was applied by the Russians, but the round was tied. None of the players decided to make a critical attack.
Jan Balashović knocked out Ankalayev well early in the second round. The attacks of both heroes of the Battle of the Evening were even more daring. “Cieszyński Prince” constantly “bites” the opponent with low blows. The opponent responded in the same way, targeting the body. The speed advantage was on the side of the 30-year-old from Makhachkala. However, the Pole knocked down the competitor’s right leg, and went in a panic to remove, but to no avail! The Russian changed sides, and after a while again wanted to send Blachowicz back to Earth, again without success.
Blachowicz continued his tactics in the third round. However, Magomed Ankalaev moved more aggressively on the pole, wanting to lock it under the net. The next strong kicks destroyed the Russian’s leg, and it was clear that he was lame! The 30-year-old once again saved himself with a try to defeat, but Blachowicz once again didn’t let himself fall to the ground. Ankalaev was wounded in the right eye. Unfortunately, in the dying seconds, the former UFC champion was knocked down.
The Russian became more aggressive again from the start of the fourth round. The pole, pressed against the net, defended itself in the middle. Ankalayev captured Blakhovich again. The “Cieszyński Prince” gave his back and was controlled on the ground floor for about three minutes. Blachowicz definitely lost this match.
Unfortunately, in the first seconds of the final part of the fight, Blachowicz found himself on the mat. The Pole tried to get out from under the Russians, but the Russian effectively prevented him. Ankalayev crushed the former champion and cruised confidently to take the win, giving Błachowicz a festival of pain.
But after five rounds, the judges’ decision was not unanimous. One of them awarded the victory to Bacovic (48-47), the second to Ancalaggio (48-46), and the third scored a draw, and this was the result of the duel. Thus, none of the fighters won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship belt.
