Halloween Eve just got a little more interesting for fighting fans.
Today, ESPN announced that UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira will be available to all ESPN + subscribers and not just those who purchase the PPV.
UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira will air exclusively on ESPN + and will give all subscribers a chance to watch a nice card featuring two championship fights. In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Błachowicz will face top contender Glover Teixeira. In the co-main event, third-place bantamweight contender Cory Sandhagen comes up against former champion and number 1 contender Petr Yan for the interim UFC bantamweight title.
ESPN is hoping its subscribers fall in love with its offerings of UFC content in time for UFC 268, a truly monumental event in the world of MMA. On November 6, UFC 268 takes place at Madison Square Garden, once a “white whale” venue for MMA. New York has always been a place where MMA was banned, but new legislation finally opened up the Big Apple to mixed martial arts in 2016 after a nearly 20-year ban.
UFC 268 will be featured by UFC welterweight champion and UFC top pound-for-pound fighter, Kamaru Usman, defending his title against No.1 contender Colby Covington. UFC 268 co-principal will also feature a rematch when UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas defends her title against challenger Zhang Weili, whose title she won in April in a stunning KO in the first round.
UFC 267 will be broadcast live from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, October 30, starting at 10 a.m.ET. The main card will begin at 2 p.m. ET.
