The event will feature a pivotal Light Heavyweight showdown between heavy-hitters Thiago Santos and Glover Teixeira. It will be Santos’ first fight in over a year after undergoing extensive surgery to repair his knee following his championship loss to Jon Jones at UFC 239.
Teixeira, meanwhile, is enjoying a nice little career resurrection after winning four straight fights including his dominate one-sided beat down over former title contender, Anthony Smith, this past May. Ranked No. 4 at the moment, Teixeira can really make a case for a title shot with a win. As could Santos since his lone loss since 2018 came against “Bones.” And now that Jones is no longer haunting people at 205 pounds, the division is wide open.
In the co-main event, Michelle Waterson and Angela Hill will collide in women’s Strawweight action. The two talented ladies were set to throw hands previously at UFC on ESPN 15 on Aug. 22 before “Karate Hottie” had to withdraw for personal reasons.
