The official fight poster has dropped for UFC 267: ‘Blachowicz vs. Teixeira’ expected to go down on Oct. 30 live on ESPN/ABC/ESPN+ from inside Etihad Arena on “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi.


CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to “Fight Island” in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Sat., Oct. 30, 2021, with another blockbuster event, headlined by two highly-anticipated world championship bouts. Light Heavyweight champion, Jan Blachowicz, goes for his second successful title defense when he takes on No. 1-ranked contender, Glover Teixeira. In UFC 267’s co-main event, former Bantamweight champion and No. 1-seeded contender, Petr Yan, locks horns with No. 3-ranked standout, Cory Sandhagen, for the interim 135-pound belt. And the pay-per-view (PPV)-worthy event will stream for free on ESPN+!

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

The main event will feature reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz defend his 205-pound crown against surging veteran and former title challenger Glover Teixeira. Blachowicz is coming off a masterful win over Israel Adesanya back in March while Glover is riding a five-fight win streak (his biggest since entering the promotion back in 2012).

In the co-main event, Aljamain Sterling and Petr Yan will collide once again for the undisputed UFC bantamweight title. The two fighters first met at UFC 259 this past March. Yan ended up landing an illegal knee in the fourth round and Sterling walked away with the title after earning the DQ win. It’s a rematch that needs to happen to provide some sort of clarity at 135 pounds.

Also gracing the UFC 267 main card is undefeated sensation Khamzat Chimaev, who will return after a 13-month hiatus to take on welterweight finisher Li Jingliang. Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos will also be back in action when he matches up against 155-pound contender Islam Makhachev, who has won his last eight trips to the Octagon.
