While the UFC 267 fight card took a hit when the bantamweight championship rematch between defending champion Aljamain Sterling and former champion Petr Yan was dropped due to an injury to Sterling, the card is always topped with a great fight for the title. In the main event, Jan Blachowicz will defend his light heavyweight championship against veteran and former title challenger Glover Teixeira. Yan will also always be in action, taking on Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight title.
At 41 and more than seven years from his previous UFC gold shot, Teixeira is an unlikely challenger for the title. Still, a five-game winning streak that includes two wins over former title contenders has made him as strong a contender at 205 pounds as available in the division’s post-Jon Jones era.
Blachowicz has proven to be a legitimate champion, winning the vacant title first against Dominick Reyes and then defending the title against middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. In both of those title fights, Blachowicz entered the Octagon as an underdog. This will not be the case against Teixeira.
The action takes place on October 30 from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. This is a rare UFC “numbered” event that will be broadcast as a non-paid event. Below is the most recent announced battle card with a battle order yet to be determined. Latest odds via Caesars Sportsbook.
