Jan Blachowicz has been scheduled for his next defense of the UFC Light Heavyweight championship. That defense is expected to come against Glover Teixeira at UFC 267 on October 30, 2021.

The UFC's first Light Heavyweight champion since Jon Jones left the division, Blachowicz will be looking to make his second title defense against Teixeira, who lost his only previous title shot against Jones.

FanDuel Sportsbook has posted opening odds for the fight.

Blachowicz vs Teixeira Odds UFC 267

Jan Blachowicz has opened as a -260 favorite over Glover Teixeira, who is a +210 underdog at UFC 267.

Blachowicz is on a five-fight win streak, which he capped off by defeating Dominick Reyes for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and Middleweight champ Israel Adesanya in a champion-vs-champion bout.

It was a long road to the title for the 38-year-old, who holds a professional record of 28-8 with 8 knockouts and 9 submissions.

It's also been a long road back to title contention for Teixeira.

The 41-year-old, who is tied for the second-most wins in UFC Light Heavyweight history, is riding a five-fight win streak of his own, having most recently submitted Thiago Santos in November, 2020. Teixeira is 32-7 as a professional, with 18 knockouts and 9 submissions.
