Santos finishes Blachowicz in UFC Prague main event

Thiago Santos defeated Jan Blachowicz by technical knockout just 39 seconds into the third round of the main event at the UFC’s first event in Prague, Czech Republic. Some positive signs for Santos as he did not come out and swing for the fences in the first round. He took his time and waited for the right moment before putting away Blachowicz with a left hand and ground & pound. That is now three straight wins for “Marreta” and eight wins in his last nine fights with seven of those coming by stoppage. In the post-fight interview, Santos says that he will attend UFC 235, which is headlined by Jon Jones and Anthony Smith for the light-heavyweight championship. Santos could easily face the winner of Jones-Smith with his resumé right now and he already has a TKO victory over Smith.

Do you think Thiago Santos deserves a title shot?
