Jan Blachowicz: ‘I am like Gollum,’ UFC title ‘is my precious,’ sees Glover Teixeira beating Jiri Prochazka

Jan Blachowicz wants his belt back. “The Legendary Polish Power” was stifled in its last time out at UFC 267 in Oct. 2021. Blachowicz, 39, was challenged by the wily veteran, 42-year-old Glover Teixeira, who had strung together enough wins to justify a second career UFC title shot. Seven years after the first opportunity against Jon Jones, Teixeira made good by submitting Blachowicz with a second-round rear-naked choke (watch highlights).

Glover Teixeira unbothered by Corey Anderson’s recent comments: “He got knocked out by the man I took the belt from”

UFC light-heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira doesn’t seem to care about Corey Anderson’s comments.

Glover Teixeira On Corey Anderson Claiming He’s The Best Light Heavyweight: ‘He Got Knocked Out By The Man I Took The Belt From’

Corey Anderson believes he is the best light heavyweight fighter on the planet. Of course, Glover Teixeira would disagree with that statement. Anderson did beat the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion… but that was way back in 2018. Years later, ‘Overtime’ thinks that dominant win over Teixeira makes his claim greater for being the best in the world. Teixeira would later reflect on their past fight in an interview with Trocação Franca.

Glover Teixeira: Bruno Silva is ‘tougher than Sean Strickland,’ Alex Pereira ready for Israel Adesanya

Alex Pereira is coming for Israel Adesanya ...

Paul Craig believes “experienced” Glover Teixeira will retain his title at UFC 275: “I don’t think Jiri has what it takes to beat him”

UFC star Paul Craig has said he believes Glover Teixeira will retain the UFC light heavyweight title against Jiri Prochazka. The UFC’s 205-pound division is one of the most unpredictable in all of mixed martial arts. It’s incredibly tough to know who is going to come out on top from one fight to the next, and that’s particularly true within the context of the title picture.
