Jon Anik breaks down UFC 275 headliner between ‘strong as an ox’ Glover Teixeira, ‘primed’ Jiri Prochazka

Jon Anik has a bit of insight to the mindset of Glover Teixeira — and to say the champion is ready to face the chaotic challenge of Jiri Prochazka is an understatement. The light heavyweight championship bout headlines this Saturday’s UFC 275 card in Singapore. Anik, who calls the action alongside former UFC champions Daniel Cormier and Michael Bisping, recently spent time with the light heavyweight titleholder Teixeira, and there is something about this particular matchup that has the submission grappling legend as excited as can be, despite a lot of fans and bettors suggesting Teixeira is merely just holding the belt for Prochazka’s potential coronation.

Jon Anik talks legacy of ‘one and only’ Tony Ferguson, potential stakes in UFC 274 matchup with Michael Chandler

Jon Anik believes Tony Ferguson still has plenty of gas left in the tank ahead of Saturday’s UFC pay-per-view event. In the lightweight featured bout of UFC 274, Ferguson will take on former Bellator champion and one-time UFC title challenger Michael Chandler at the Footprint Center in Phoenix. With “El Cucuy” competing for the first time in a year, Anik is hopeful Ferguson — who enters the contest in a three-fight skid — will be able to show flashes of brilliance that made him one of the most feared 155-pounders in UFC history.

Jon Anik on Colby Covington vs. Jorge Masvidal: ‘Whoever loses is probably never gonna fight for the belt again’

Jon Anik is so excited to see the grudge match between Colby Covington and Jorge Masvidal unfold, he’s putting out different psychological vibes into the universe.
