Curtis Blaydes is one of the best Heavyweight fighters in the world right now. With a wrestling background and striking that is improving with each fight, it’s easy to see why he has broken the UFC Top 10 rankings.
Blaydes recent win over Aleksei Oleinik at UFC 217 has a lot of people talking about what’s next for the young Heavyweight. Keep in mind, unlike most of the division, Blaydes is still in his 20’s. 26 to be exact.
I recently spoke with Blaydes about everything going in his career right now. His thoughts on the win at 217 that almost wasn’t, if it were up to him who he would fight next, and his thoughts on the man who gave him his only loss (via doctor stoppage). Francis Ngannou.
