However, this won’t be the same case when the light heavyweight giants meet inside the cage. So here’s a brief overview of the amazing light heavyweight title clash.

UFC 267: Jan Blachowicz vs Glover Teixeira- Battle of the Giants

42-year-old Glover Teixeira has an impressive professional fight record of 32-7. He has finished 18 of his opponents via knockout and nine via submissions. However, the veteran has yet to claim a UFC gold strap. At UFC 267, he will seek to do so and make sure his second title fight is a success.

He will enter the fight on the back of five wins. On the other hand, Jan Blachowicz (28-8) is undefeated in five of his previous bouts and has one successful title defense under his name.

Coming to the veteran classic bout, Blachowicz is a skilled striker and has got a lot of power in his gloves. His two knockout losses are a testament to his strong chin. However, the 42-year-old might be a tough fight for Blachowicz, as he has brushed his shoulders with similar fighters and conquered them.
