Glover Teixeira made history by becoming the oldest first-time champion in UFC history.

A big betting underdog heading into his fight with light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz (28-9 MMA, 11-6 UFC) this past Saturday at UFC 267, Teixeira (33-7 MMA, 16-5 UFC) put on a dominant performance. Teixeira was able to rock Blachowicz on the feet and dominated him on the ground, sinking in a second-round rear-naked choke to capture the title at 42.

In the co-main event, former champion Petr Yan (16-2 MMA, 8-1 UFC) outlasted Cory Sandhagen (14-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) in a thrilling standup war to capture the interim bantamweight title.
