Jan Blachowicz VS Glover Teixeira: Preview & Prediction

Jan Blachowicz VS Glover Teixeira


UFC 267 is right around the corner with the Light Heavyweight Title on the line. Champion Jan Blachowiz will have to defend his title against #1 Light Heavyweight contender, Glover Teixeira in Abu Dhabi.

A A A tT

Jan Blachowicz (28-8-0) or should we say, “The Polish Power” has proven himself to be a legitimate champion of the Light Heavyweight Division. He won the title back in September 2020 after a surprising second-round knockout against Dominick Reyes and then went on to defend the title against current middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. In both the fights, Jan came in as an underdog but that won’t be the case against Teixeira.

Glover Teixeira (32-7-0), at the age of 41 is still not giving up on the sport. After a 5 fight win streak, which includes some incredible wins over top contenders like Thiago Santos, Anthony Smith, and Nikita Krylov, Glover Teixeira finally earns his title shot more than seven years after his previous shot at UFC gold.

Both fighters are very similar in terms of technique but everyone would give the edge to Texiera for his boxing skills. However, Boachowicz’s two-inch reach advantage and kickboxing skills keeps this fight neutral. When on his feet, Glover has the tendency to absorb more shots than he lands which is a dangerous game to play against Blachowicz. Jan is an intelligent fighter putting himself in danger while executing the right moves when he has the opportunity. The power in his punches is undeniable, especially his body kicks, which is something Texiera needs to be careful about. 

Our pick for the fight is a win for Blachowicz to retain his UFC Light Heavyweight Title as he holds a nice reach advantage which would help him land his kicks perfectly or he could also take Teixeira down to the canvas to drain out his energy. Whatever the method be, it looks like Jan is going to cruise to the victory in this fight.
