In Abu Dhabi, UFC 267 will open off with a bang, with UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz taking on former UFC heavyweight contender Glover Teixeira in a highly anticipated contest.

Jan Bachowicz, the UFC light heavyweight champion, has been training for another title defense since he defeated Dominick Reyes with a technical knockout at UFC 253 on September 27, 2020. At UFC 259, he successfully defended his championship against “The Last Stylebender” Israel Adesanya, handing the Nigerian Kiwi his first loss. This Saturday at UFC 267, the Polish beast will face Glover Teixeria in an attempt to improve his title defense record.

Glover Teixeira, a former UFC heavyweight challenger, is on a five-fight winning run and hasn’t lost since January of this year. This, however, will be his first fight for the light heavyweight title.

Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen will compete for the Bantamweight title in another co-main event. Yan had previously won the vacant Bantamweight championship at UFC 251 but had to relinquish it due to an illegal knee at UFC 259 due to an injury.

Two championship fights headline this pay-per-view event (November 6, 2021). In the main event, Kamaru Usman, the pound-for-pound king, defends his championship against the loudmouthed Colby Covington. This is a rematch of Usman’s knockout victory in 2019. In the co-main event, “Thug” Rose Namajunas faces against previous champion Zhang Weili in another rematch. Weili is eager for vengeance after Namajunas knocked her out in their last battle with a brutal head kick knockout. An exciting fight between former interim champion Justin Gaethje and previous championship contender Michael Chandler will open the main show.

UFC 268 was a night to remember, with fantastic fights all throughout the program. Usman successfully defended his title against a tough Colby Covington. Usman dominated the first two rounds with his jab, but Covington changed the tide in rounds three and four. The battle looked to come down to the final round, which Usman won to retain his championship. Former champion Zhang Weili was defeated by Namajunas in a five-round split decision.

The fight was close throughout, but Namajunas won with a takedown in the fifth round. Justin Gaethje and Michael Chandler fought in the main event opener, and it was a contender for “Fight of the Year.”Both former D1 wrestlers were launching bombs at each other and engaging in some thrilling grapple matches. Chandler was heading towards Gaethje in the final round, urging him to punch him in the face – complete lunacy. Gaethje eventually won a unanimous decision.

Gaethje/Chandler (Fight of the Night), Chris Barnett, Marlon Vera, Alex Pereira, and Bobby Green all received $50,000 bonuses.

Assumptions:

According to the Sports Business Journal, UFC 268 had around 700,000 PPV buys, thus our stats have been revised (from our estimate of 650,000) to reflect these figures.

Assume Namajunas and Usman are compensated according to the normal PPV formula.

If Namajunas, Usman, Gaethje, Chandler, Covington, and Frankie Edgar are paid a flat fee with no victory bonus.
