Jan Blachowicz bids to become a two-time UFC champion when he meets Magomed Ankalaev in the Octagon for the vacant lightweight title this weekend.
It was not a bout in the making until last month when Jiri Prochazka vacated the belt after suffering a serious shoulder injury and scheduled opponent Glover Teixeira opted against fighting replacement Ankalaev.
