MMA Crossfire – Blachowicz now set up to fight Anderson at UFC 191

Polish light-heavyweight Jan Blachowicz (18-4-0) will now fight TUF 19 winner Corey Anderson (5-1-0) instead of Anthony Johnson at UFC 191.

The arrangement was due to Johnson being matched with British challenger Jimi Manuwa instead.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
