Jan Blachowicz will lead the new era of the UFC light heavyweight after claiming the belt against Dominick Reyes on Saturday at UFC 253.

After Jon Jones recently gave up the strap, Blachowicz (27-8 MMA, 10-5 UFC) scooped it up when he scored a second-round knockout victory over Reyes (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in the 205-pound championship fight, which took place at Flash Forum at Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Blachowicz’s victory over Reyes at UFC 253.
