The UFC is again in Abu Dhabi this week for a numbered occasion that, in a rarity, isn’t a pay-per-view.
ESPN+ subscribers get UFC 267 as a part of their package deal, which is a pleasant little bonus. And they’re daytime fights, besides, together with two title bouts.
Light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz (28-8 MMA, 11-5 UFC) places his title on the road towards 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 cardboard options 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’s the struggle we’re almost definitely to be speaking about after the occasion? 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 dialogue within the video above, and take a look at this week’s full episode beneath.
