Jan Blachowicz will put his light heavyweight title on the line at UFC 267 tonight, defending the belt against veteran submission specialist Glover Teixeira.
The co-main event on Abu Dhabi’s ‘Fight Island’ sees Cory Sandhagen face former bantamweight champion Petr Yan for the division’s interim strap, and elsewhere there are plenty of fan favourites in action.
New Zealand’s Dan Hooker is a notable betting underdog as he take on Islam Makhachev – a childhood friend of Khabib Nurmagomedov and future lightweight champion in the eyes of many.
Also, undefeated rising star Khamzat Chimaev makes his return to the Octagon after a 13-month absence, going up against ‘The Leech’ Li Jingliang.
