UFC® and the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi (DCT – Abu Dhabi) present the action-packed UFC 267: BLACHOWICZ vs TEIXEIRA on Saturday 30 October 2021 at the new Etihad Arena, Yas Island, featuring two championship bouts.
The headline light heavyweight title bout will see fan favourite Jan Blachowicz return to Abu Dhabi for the first time since his historic victory over Dominic Reyes last September. This time around he will defend his title against the No.1 contender Glover Teixeira.
If one championship bout isn’t enough to get fans excited, UFC 267: BLACHOWICZ vs TEIXEIRA will also feature a bantamweight title showdown between champion Aljamain Sterling and former titleholder Petr Yan, a rematch of their clash in March, which saw Sterling take the belt from Yan.
Islam Makhachev will be looking to stretch his win streak to 10, in front of loyal UAE fanbase, when he faces the lightweight division’s No.7 contender Rafael Dos Anjos.
Abu Dhabi fans will see Sweden’s Khamzat Chimaev in person once again, following his electric UFC debut on UFC Fight in July 2020. The stacked card promises action and intrigue all the way through and is the climax of a thrilling Abu Dhabi Showdown Week.
