Jan Blachowicz(c) vs Glover Teixeira – Light Heavyweight Championship – UFC 267 – 30 October 2021
Jan Blachowicz is on the seventh heaven as he broke Israel Adesanya’s undefeated streak in MMA in his first title defense, which is arguably considered the biggest win of his career. Blachowicz had won the vacant Light Heavyweight title at UFC 253 in “Performance of the Night” as he knocked out Dominik Reyes. But will he be able to defend the title against a resurgent Glover Teixeira at UFC 266?
Teixeira has 5 wins in a row and this undefeated streak has seen him become the #1 contender for the Light Heavyweight title. Brazilian will enter in only the second title fight of his career. He had earlier lost the championship fight to Jon Jones back in 2014. A win here will make him the second-oldest champion in UFC history.
