Blachowicz won the vacant light heavyweight crown in Abu Dhabi in September 2020. He scored a knockout of Dominick Reyes to capture the belt Jon Jones vacated when he pursued a move to heavyweight. Blachowicz’s first title defense came in March when he defeated middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Blachowicz is on a five-fight winning streak.
Teixeira had a shot at UFC gold in 2014. He lost to Jones in that bout. He then went on a 5-4 run. The former title challenger turned things around in 2019 with a submission win over Karl Roberson. Teixeira is now on a five-fight winning streak. He has finishes in his two most recent outings.
Blachowicz has gone 9-1 since 2017 but he faces Teixeira who is known as a kockout artist.
