ESPN+ will host UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira, and will make the event that features some of UFC’s most exciting rising stars available for all ESPN+ subscribers at no added cost.

What’s Happening:

  • On the eve of Halloween, ESPN+ will have a special treat for fight fans – offering up an ESPN+ Special Presentation of UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira, live from Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi and available to all ESPN+ subscribers at no added cost.
  • The special presentation kicks off an eight day stretch that will see the two marquis UFC events, featuring four title fights, 29 fights, 24 top-15 ranked fighters. Just one week after UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira, the Octagon will be in New York’s Madison Square Garden for UFC 268: Usman vs. Covington 2. It is the first time in a decade that the UFC will feature two of its marquee events just one week apart (previous: UFC 137 and UFC 138, Oct. 29 and Nov. 5, 2011).  
  • UFC 267: Błachowicz vs. Teixeira will stream exclusively on ESPN+ and give all subscribers a chance to watch the stacked UFC card featuring a thrilling pair of championship bouts plus some of the sport’s most exciting rising stars. In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Błachowicz will take on no. 1 contender Glover Teixeira. In the co-main event, no. 3 bantamweight contender Cory Sandhagen steps in against former Champion, and no. 1 contender, Petr Yan for the interim UFC bantamweight title.  
  • Also on the UFC 267 card:
  • Islam Makhachev (no. 5) will bring his eight-fight lightweight unbeaten streak into the Octagon against no.6 lightweight Dan Hooker, who steps in on just one month notice, following his defeat of Nasrat Haqparast at UFC 266.
  • The exciting and unbeaten welterweight Khamzat Chimaev will face Li Jinliang. Jinliang is coming off a “Performance of the Night” defeat of Santiago Ponzinibbo on Fight Island in January, while Chimaev’s unblemished record has yet to see a fight go beyond round two.
  • Rising light heavyweight hopeful Magomed Ankalaev (no. 7)  rides a six-fight win streak (including three first-round finishes, four total knockouts and three Performance of the Night nods) and will face fellow title-shot hopeful Volkan Oezdemir (no. 8).
  • Rising heavyweight hopeful Marcin Tybura (no. 9) will bring a five-fight win streak into the Octagon and face the no. 5-ranked heavyweight Alexander Volkov, who is trying to climb back into title contention after a hard-fought, five-round loss to interim Champion Ciryl Gane.
