UFC 267 goes down this coming Saturday the 24th of October from Fight Island, Abu Dhabi and it is one stacked card. Jan Blachowicz returns from his impressive title defense against middleweight champ Israel Adesanya to fight the always tough Glover Teixeira, while Petr Yan and Cory Sandhagen fight for the interim bantamweight title while champ Aljamain Sterling continues to recover from neck surgery.
As always for these big numbered events, the UFC has produced a great Countdown to UFC 267 video which splits its time between the four fighters in the main and co-main, laying out just how this latest interim bantamweight title situation came about. It also tracks Jan Blachowicz’s transformation from middle of the pack 205er to formidable champion.
And don’t forget, folks: numbered UFC events like UFC 267 are typically pay-per-views, but this one is free, free, free! Provided you subscribe to ESPN+, that is. Being in Abu Dhabi and broadcast for primetime Europe, it will also go down in the afternoon here in the contintental Americas. So watch this Countdown show, fire up that BBQ, and get ready for a great day of fights.
Further down the card, mad lad Dan Hooker turns it around in just over a month to fight the man no one wants to fight, Islam Makhachev. Makhachev has gained the title of Khabib’s protege, and that label will be put to the test against the always tough Hooker, who has recently leveled up his wrestling game.
