Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

Our own Nick Baldwin interviewed UFC Heavyweight contender, Curtis Blaydes, who just fought at UFC Nashville on Saturday, the 23rd of March; which featured Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis vs Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson in the main event.

Prior to UFC Fight Night 148, Blaydes last faced Francis Ngannou in a rematch on November 24, 2018 at UFC Beijing, where he lost the fight via TKO. At UFC on ESPN+ 6 last weekend, he fought Justin Willis, continually bringing him down, controlling him and scoring a knockdown in the second round. He won the fight via dominant unanimous decision, bringing him to an 11-2-1 record.

Blaydes discusses his dominant win over Justin Willis last weekend at UFC Nashville, Willis’ trash talk ahead of the fight, whether or not the bout was personal to Blaydes, who he wants next, and more.
