A little home cooking could be just what Jan Blachowicz needs to get his mojo back.
On Wednesday, the UFC announced that the 34-year-old light heavyweight will have the chance to get his hand raised in front of thousands of supporters when he fights Devin “Brown Bear” Clark (8-1) at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland at UFC Fight Night 118 on Oct. 21.
This will be just the second UFC event to take place in Poland. The promotion previously graced Krakow with a card headlined by a heavyweight rematch between Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic and Gabriel Gonzaga back in April 2015. On that same show, Blachowicz (19-7) lost a unanimous decision to Jimi Manuwa.
That loss was the start of a rough stretch for the Poznan resident, who has gone 1-4 in his past five fights with his lone victory coming by way of unanimous decision over Igor Pokrajac.
Clark is currently streaking in the other direction, having won two straight since losing his UFC debut to Alex Nicholson. He owns back-to-back unanimous decision wins over Josh Stansbury and Jake Collier inside the Octagon.
No main event has been announced for the card yet.
