Glover Teixeira will defend his UFC light heavyweight title for the second time when he battles Jan Blachowicz in the main event of UFC 267, which is set to take place on October 30, 2021 in Abu Dhabi.
SportsBetting.ag released odds for the fight between Blachowicz and Teixeira. The champion is the favorite by a lot because he has won before. You have to bet $290 on him to get $100 if he wins, but you will only get $230 if you bet on his opponent, who is an underdog.Jan Blachowicz is listed as the -290 favorite and Glover Teixeira is listed at+230.
Blachowicz has been the underdog in all his last three fights. This is a good change. He was also an underdog against two different champions, and he won both times. He says: “put some respect on my name.” In fact, in his five-fight winning streak he was not an underdog once; only against Jacare.
The champion has had a rough time with his career in the past. He lost four out of five fights six years ago, but he is 34 now and has won nine out of 10 since then. Five of those were by stoppage (two submissions and three knockouts).
Blachowicz’s most recent win, a third-round TKO of Felipe Arantes at UFC on ESPN 2, is further proof that he has a well-rounded skill set. It extrapolates his entire record, in which 17 of his 28 victories have been stoppages (eight knockouts, nine submissions). While taking advantage of opportunities to damage his enemies, January is an astute combatant who rarely puts himself in real danger while defending. His Polish power is indisputable, particularly his body kicks, which can do significant harm if not avoided.
Back in July 2013, Glover Teixeira was a +350 underdog when he fought Jon Jones at UFC 172. He was unable to cash as a + money option that night, losing by unanimous decision, but he is confident his luck will change in his second attempt at UFC gold.Glover is on a five-fight winning streak and has been an underdog or a pick’em in four of those fights.
There might be a fight between two fighters. One seems to have more boxing skills. He has 18 knockouts and nine submissions on his record. The other fighter has a reach advantage of 2 inches and some kickboxing skills which can help him keep the fighter at bay.
Glover is very smart in fights. He knows when to save his energy and when to work hard. Teixeira is good in all places, but he gets hit more than he hits people.
