Abu Dhabi Showdown Week returns in October with a series of city-wide activations, including fan events, fitness showcases and much more. The weeklong festival of MMA and lifestyle events culminates with the return of UFC® to its international home for a much-anticipated UFC® 267: BLACHOWICZ vs TEIXEIRA and a unique opportunity for fans to attend a major sporting event.
Etihad Arena will host a stacked UFC® 267: BLACHOWICZ vs TEIXEIRA card on Saturday 30th October, featuring not one but two championship title fights. In the headline light heavyweight clash, fan favourite Jan Blachowicz returns to Abu Dhabi for the first time since his historic victory over Dominic Reyes in September 2020. This time around he will defend his title against the division’s No.1 contender Glover Teixeira.
Meanwhile, Islam Makhachev will be looking to stretch his win streak to 10, in front of loyal UAE fanbase, when he faces Dan Hooker. Abu Dhabi fans will see Sweden’s Khamzat Chimaev in person once again, following his electric UFC debut on UFC Fight in July 2020.
