“Jones defeats Blachowicz. Too slow. (Blachowicz is) too slow to beat… because the thing about Jones, people don’t realize he’s got a good chin, ”Cormier said. “You can hit him. I hit him. Many of us hit him. He can take hits, man. If Jan Blachowicz is there and he’s too slow, Jones would separate him. If I was still fighting at 205 – or if I was still fighting today – and you said, “DC, you can fight Jan Blachowicz,” I would probably fight Jan Blachowicz. No disrespect. ”
But that’s exactly what Blachowicz saw – as a sign of disrespect – and he made it clear in a tweet to the recently retired former two-time UFC champion.
“Hi @dc_mma! If you have so much to say about me, get your fat ass off the couch and come to the Octagon, ”Blachowicz wrote. “I’ll teach you a little respect.”
Rather than engage further, Cormier took to the highways with a retweet.
“No chance for a champion, congratulations on a big win. You are the man! he wrote. “You are the king now, don’t worry about what a retired old man says. Great job to get this title!

Blachowicz issued one more answer and achieved peace with DC.
Okey, that’s cool. An Internet war is over :). #ChampsRespect
Blachowicz won the light heavyweight title last Saturday at UFC 253 with a dominant finish from Reyes in the second round. It was the fourth consecutive victory for the new champion, who includes Luke Rockhold, Ronaldo Souza and Corey Anderson.
