The UFC is back in Abu Dhabi this week for a numbered event that, in a rarity, is not a pay-per-view.
ESPN+ subscribers get UFC 267 as part of their package, which is a nice little bonus. And they’re daytime fights, to boot, including two title bouts.
Light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz (28-8 MMA, 11-5 UFC) puts his title on the line against Glover Teixeira (32-7 MMA, 15-5 UFC). And Cory Sandhagen (14-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) takes on former champ Petr Yan (15-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) for the interim bantamweight title.
Plus, the card features standout fights like Dan Hooker (21-10 MMA, 11-6 UFC) vs. Islam Makhachev (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Khamzat Chimaev (9-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) vs. Li Jingliang (18-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC).
But what is the fight we’re most likely to be talking about after the event? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of “Gorgeous” George Garcia, Mike Bohn and Nolan King broke it down with host John Morgan.
You can watch their discussion in the video above, and check out this week’s full episode below.
