Blachowicz vs Teixeira preview and predictions
This intriguing battle for the 205lb crown sees two fighters trying to pull off the seemingly impossible, with Blachowicz looking to match the heights of his last fight and Teixeira aiming to become the UFC's second oldest champion behind Randy Couture.
While Blachowicz already had the respect of his peers by the time he lifted the light heavyweight belt following his victory over Dominick Reyes last September, its fair to say the Polish star's standing in MMA circles went up several notches thanks to the manner in which he dispatched the much-fancied Israel Adesanya earlier this year.
With Blachowicz now 38, and Teixeira 42, this is a match up of two of the promotion's more seasoned pros, but the defending champ's greater skillset should prove to be the deciding factor over age and experience this evening.
Who is Jan Blachowicz?
Born in Warsaw, Poland, Jan Blachowicz claimed the light middleweight title in September during the co-main event of UFC 253, where he pulled off a second-round KO victory over Dominick Reyes.
The victory marked an incredible turnaround for the 38-year-old, who began his career in the big leagues with four defeats in his first six bouts.
He since gone on to win nine of his last ten since suffering consecutive defeats to Alexander Gustafsson and Patrick Cummins with Saturday's fight marking the second defence of his title.
Who is Glover Teixeira?
A consistent fixture at the top of the light heavyweight rankings since joining the UFC back in 2012, Minas Gerais-born slugger Glover Teixeira holds the UFC all-time record for most submissions and finishes in the Light Heavyweight division
Despite his consistent performances at the weight, the 41-year-old has only had one previous shot at the title, a disappointing showdown against Jon Jones seven years ago that ended in an unanimous decision defeat.
The veteran fighter has more than earned his second chance at glory, however, taking on a decent list of contenders that has seen him notch up a five-fight win streak.
Blachowicz vs Teixeira latest odds: who is the favorite to win?
Polish champ Volkanovski is marked out as the favourite to successfully defend his crown, with odds with most bookies coming in at 2/7, while a victory for Teixeira currently hovers around the 5/2 mark.
Blachowicz vs Teixeira: recent results
Blachowicz's outing in the Octagon may well go down as his career highlight, with his first title defence back in March a controlled, calculated performance that handed middleweight champion Israel Adesanya his first defeat of his MMA career.
Its almost a year since Teixeira's last fight – a a third-round submission win over Thiago Santos in the main event of UFC Fight Night 182 in Las Vegas last November.
UFC 267 full card and highlights
